France sees highest number of COVID-19 patients coming into hospitals since April

Paris, Oct.26 (BNA): French hospitals registered 1,307 new coronavirus patients on Monday in the highest one-day increase since April 2, which saw 1,607 new patients, as the health system is coming under increasing stress from a runaway infection rate. 


French health ministry data showed that France now has a total of 17,784 coronavirus patients in its hospitals, compared to a high of 32,292 on April 14, said Reuters. 


The ministry also reported 26,771 new confirmed coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, from 52,010 on Sunday. On Monday, the tally usually drops sharply because of reporting lags over the weekend.
