PARIS, March 11 (Reuters) – New COVID-19 infections in France rose by more than 25% on Friday compared to a week ago after rising more than 24% on Thursday, as a downward trend that had started late January reversed.
The health ministry registered 72,399 new infections on Friday, while the seven-day moving average of new infections also rose, for the fourth day in a row, by nearly 16% to more than 60,000.
New hospitalisations with COVID-19 – which tend to lag new cases by about two weeks – continued falling, by 7% to just over 21,000.
