France: 1,097 Coronavirus cases in 24 hours. The daily update of coronavirus cases has risen in France to 7,730, which is 1,097 more than the previous 24 hours, writes my colleague Kim Willsher.

“There have been 175 deaths, an increase of 27 in a day. Jérôme Salomon, director of the French health authority, said 7% of those infected were under 70 years old. Of the sick, 699 are in intensive care, but 5,000 patients have recovered or are being treated at home.

There are now 2,575 patients still in the hospital, but more than 600 people have been successfully treated and allowed to go home in the last 24 hours alone.
