French Coronavirus Infections Set New Record Above 20,000 Per Day
The number of new coronavirus infections in France jumped more than 20,000 in one day for the first time since the start of the epidemic,


On a per capita basis, that would be the equivalent of over 103,000 new reported  cases in the United States. For reference, the highest amount of new cases ever recorded in the United States was 78,888 on July 24th.

The ministry reported 20,330 new infections, taking the cumulative total to 691,977 since the start of the year. In the past two days the ministry had reported more than 18,000 daily new confirmed COVID-19 cases.

The number of deaths from the virus increased by 109 to 32,630, the most in a week but below highs of around 150 seen earlier this month. The death toll figures can be skewed as the ministry often reports several days of senior citizen residence data in one batch.

The number of people in hospital jumped by another 240 to 7,864 nationwide and the number of people in intensive care units - the best measure of a health system's ability to deal with the epidemic -rose by 21 to 1,448.

At the height of the crisis in early April, more than 7,000 people were in intensive care with COVID.

On Thursday, France's health minister said that Lyon - the country's third-biggest city - and three other THE number of new coronavirus infections in France jumped more than 20,000 in one day for the first time since the start of the epidemic, cities will have to close their bars in coming days, as Paris and Marseille have done, in a bid to slow the spread of the virus

This must be hard to comprehend for those who think the spread of the virus is easily controllable and only Donald Trump's mistakes somehow let an outbreak occur in the US. Here we are 7 months into the outbreak and it's more out of control than ever in Europe.  I guess they didn't get Joe Biden's "plan" either.

Many Trump supporters think the virus is a left wing hoax that will come to a sudden stop on Nov 4. 

Who's dumber ?

If Biden wins, just about every article and mention of Covid-19 will amazingly disappear from the MSM

I know the average human attention span can be measured in seconds but that is no reason to keep repeating yourself.

Now with an average attention span less than 30 seconds is it any wonder that people don't want to wear masks, wash their hands or stay away from one another even if their lives could depend on it?

No, it isn't.  Hence the second wave predictions for an Autumn second wave...

Well, when the poster ignores it the first time, I'm politely giving them a chance to catch up to speed. 

ence the second wave predictions for an Autumn second wave..

Of course it's a second wave. That's the point.   And despite it being predicted for months, first world countries have not been able to stop it, despite six months to prepare. So to believe Trump is uniquely responsible for an outbreak that other countries are powerless to stop, is idiotic.

So France, England, Spain etc.. just lack Biden's leadership. If they had Joe Biden, Corona would runaway from real leadership.

Leadership is one word Biden knows nothing about. He has always been a follower.

Easy to understand really. Ease restrictions and see a spike.

Just like in my state. They decided no masks mandatory, a week later seeing a spike...

I think Spain said they were going to close bars again while Germany is blaming social gatherings.

Yup, a lot of folks never wore masks or socially distanced in the first place, and then when restrictions were relaxed, a lot of folks acted like all is well and no need to continue following common sense measures.

5.1.1  Ender  replied to  Tessylo @5.1    3 weeks ago

When masks were mandatory, for a while I could go out and almost everyone in a store would be wearing one. They took away the mandatory and now most of them are not.

Stupid. I wear one everywhere. Some idiots think that since it is no longer mandatory, they don't have to. Like somehow everything is ok and/or normal.

You hit the nail on the head. It is the states governors who decide when to allow business's to reopen or not resulting in spikes or not.

France set a new record today, with 22,591 cases.  That's the equivalent of over 115,000 cases in the USA.

Italy also set a new record as well. Spain had it's second highest day ever. Europe is getting hit very hard.

The daily record jumped over 30% today, with 30,621 new cases. That 's the equivalent of over 155,000 cases in the USA, whose daily record is 78,888.

Back down to 25,086 cases today, which is great news.  But still the equivalent of over 127,000 case in the USA, for perspective.

The positivity rate is now above 13%, which indicates the official counts are missing large amounts of infections. By comparison, the US with a more rigorous testing system, has a rate of 5.3%.

Although France's 13% positivity rate pales in comparison to Argentina's 76%, or even the Czech Republic's 30%.

No, it's not.  

But I'm sure our liberal  partisan hacks who exist only to  politicize the virus will no doubt blame the  Democratic governor's fault because "leadership" and he's responsible for all 1,500 plus deaths in the state.

Speaking of partisan hacks, LOL. 

Things aren't as bad as they look in WI. South Dakota has a positivity rate of 36.4% so you're not number one. Number two isn't that good either. Never fear, Sean after the Trump rally there you're bound to catch up to SD.

Cheers.
