(Fighting New Coronary Pneumonia) The fourth wave of 6.9 million confirmed cases in France has eased
China News Agency, Paris, September 12 (Reporter Li Yang) On the 12th local time, the total number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia in France reached 6.9 million. The latest official data show that the fourth wave of the epidemic in France has eased.
According to official French epidemic data, there were 7,675 new confirmed cases in a single day in France on the 12th, and the total number of confirmed cases reached 6,905,071. The cumulative number of deaths in France is now 115,517, with 29 new deaths. The number of hospitalized patients with the new crown in France is now 10,012, and the number of severely ill patients is 2,129.
Data show that the fourth wave of the epidemic has eased, mainly reflected in the continued decline in the incidence of new crowns across France. The incidence of new crowns in the past week has been declining. The current incidence of new crowns in France is 109 per 100,000 inhabitants, which is 26% lower than the previous week.
However, the epidemic situation in some overseas territories of France is still serious. Official French Polynesia recorded as many as 590 deaths in August. French TV station BFM stated that since 1983, the monthly death toll in the area has not exceeded 180. The local believe that such a high number of deaths in August may be due to the large number of infections caused by the new crown mutant virus strain Delta. Problems such as the saturation of the local medical system may also be responsible for the increase in deaths.
Epidemic prevention measures such as expanding the use of health passes have been implemented for one month, and most people have accepted the use of health passes in daily life. The number of protesters against the health pass continued to decrease. According to statistics released by the French Ministry of the Interior on the evening of the 11th, 120,000 people participated in the parade in France on the 11th, which was lower than the 140,000 recorded last weekend.
According to official statistics, 49.63 million people in France have received at least one dose of the vaccine, accounting for 73.6% of the French population; 46.66 million people have completed two doses, accounting for 69.2% of the French population. (over)
