The French Ministry of Health reported on Tuesday that 73 further coronavirus deaths have been registered in the last 24 hours after three days with no death data.
In a statement, health authorities have detailed that the death toll has been 28,530 since the pandemic began, of which 18,195 have been registered in hospitals and another 10,335 in nursing homes and day care centers.
However, health authorities have made it clear that the number of deaths in the past 24 hours is only those reported in hospitals. Therefore, the number of deaths in nursing homes still needs to be updated.
A total of 16,264 people are hospitalized in the country. This number continues to decline, although another 318 people were admitted on the last day.
