PARIS (Reuters) - France is still far from reducing its number of new COVID-19 cases per day to 5,000, and the risk of a strong rebound of the pandemic remains high, the health ministry’s top official said on Monday.
“For the last few days, the level of infections has stopped falling,” Jerome Salomon told a press conference.
Two government sources told Reuters that France may have to delay unwinding some COVID-19 lockdown restrictions next week after signs that the downward trend in new infections had flattened out.
