nearly 20,000 new cases for the last day of the year


#Nearly 20,000 confirmed cases of #Covid-19 have been recorded in #France in the past 24 hours, where the number of hospitalized patients has decreased slightly, according to figures released #Thursday by #Public #Health #France.

The number of recorded cases was 19,927 in 24 hours, against 26,457 on #Wednesday (but #Wednesday’s figure included a catch-up of data from the day before), a figure still far from the government target of going down to 5,000 cases by day. #This daily figure has varied enormously since mid-December, fluctuating between some 3,000 and over 21,000.
