Covid-19: daily death toll in France rises, ICU cases down

Official figures released on Monday evening reported 263 deaths in France from the Covid-19 coronavirus over the previous 24 hours, compared with 70 registered over the previous day on Sunday, with 22,284 people infected with the virus hospitalised, while the numbers of intensive care patients were reported to have fallen by 64.

France tentatively steps out from lockdown

After two months of a general confinement of the population, France lifted the lockdown on public movement on Monday, allowing businesses and shops to re-open and free movement within a 100-kilometre radius of people's homes, but in the Paris region, where the number of Covid-19 cases remain high - if steadily fewer - employers are encouraged to keep staff working from home where possible.
