The French Ministry of Health reported on Friday that a further 52 coronavirus deaths have occurred in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths since the pandemic to 29,000.

Health officials said in a statement that the total death toll is now 28,714, of which 18,387 were registered in hospitals and another 10,327 in nursing homes and day care centers.

As a result, the government adjusted the numbers after a week without providing specific data on daily deaths in dormitories and social centers due to a problem with data collection.
