Coronavirus live news: France registers record 58,046 new cases; Italy reports highest death toll since April
The head of France’s public health service has said the coronavirus crisis in the country is getting worse and every day in the fight to slow the spread of infections counts

France reported 58,046 new Covid-19 infections over the past 24 hours, setting a daily record for the second time in four days, up from 40,558 on Wednesday.

The figure was published shortly after Paris announced new restrictive measures on top of a second national lockdown enforced since last Friday.

The number of people in France who have died from Covid-19 infections rose by 363 to 39,037, versus 385 on Wednesday and a seven-day moving average of 431.

The cumulative number of cases now totals 1,601,367.

On a per capita basis, the American equivalent would be over 290,000 new reported cases  and 1,800 deaths in a day.

I hope the people of France are pulling together to stop the virus and are not so tragically   ignorant and partisan as to to try and politicize the virus by calling it the Macron virus.

You beat me to it.

Where is the left now with their Trump bashing. Seems our European allies suck at containing Covid 19 far more than we do.

And the number from France is actually higher than 58,000 today, that number was apparently an incomplete count of the country.

It's really sickening that they have been walking around claiming that Trump is responsible for 220,000 dead Americans. Other than the Democratic Party and Joe Biden, who is helped by such rhetoric? I think no one.

He might be responsible for some small number, but there should be no doubt that most of those people would have died anyway. He has probably also saved lives that Democrats might not have saved. There is no particular reason to think it would have gone very different with a different president.

France had 60,486 new cases today with over 800 deaths, on a per capita that would be over 300,000 new reported cases and 4,000 deaths in America.

It's really bad and not getting better there. This is not a uniquely American issue.

I thought the virus disappeared Joe Biden’s lead made it disappear.
