French Prime Minister announced the beginning of the third wave of coronavirus in the country
French Prime Minister Jean Castex said that the country is facing the third wave of the coronavirus pandemic, reports AFP.
“France has entered a kind of third wave,” the head of government said the day before, speaking at a press conference. According to Kasteks, this phase is “characterized by multiple strains” of COVID-19.
Recall that a strict quarantine has been in effect in France for several months to slow the spread of coronavirus. However, this measure did not bring the desired result. The rate at which the infection spreads is alarming for specialists.
So, in Paris and the surrounding area in intensive care units there are more than a thousand patients with coronavirus. This is above the anti-record recorded in the fall of 2020. For the entire time of the pandemic in France, four million cases of COVID-19 were recorded, about 90 thousand died.
Earlier it was reported that Brazil recorded a record number of deaths of patients with coronavirus.
