France and Italy each recorded new highs of nearly 465,000 and 228,000 reported new coronavirus infections within 24 hours yesterday.

As the French health authority indicated in the evening, 464,769 new infections were registered. In recent weeks, the number of cases has risen rapidly. Most recently, the incidence value, i.e. the number of infections per 100,000 inhabitants within one week, was 3,063 nationwide. The omicron variant of the coronavirus dominates.

In view of this, France’s government wants to provide further incentives for Covid 19 vaccination and significantly tighten the rules for the unvaccinated. They are soon to be denied access to restaurants, cultural venues and long-distance transport. Admission would then only be granted with proof of vaccination or recovery.

Over 15 percent of tests positive
In Italy, 228,179 new infections were registered. This is also another record high since the outbreak of the pandemic in February 2020, Italian health authorities reported. In addition, 434 deaths were counted.

A record 1.48 million CoV tests were analyzed in the past 24 hours, with 15.4 percent coming back positive. 1,715 CoV patients were in intensive care units of Italian hospitals.

Another 19,448 Covid 19 patients were cared for in normal wards. 5.5 million Italians have recovered from coronavirus since the pandemic outbreak in February 2020. 2.5 million are in quarantine.
