PARIS: France registered more than 20,000 new confirmed cases on Wednesday for the first time since August 25 as the fifth wave of the epidemic picked up speed.
The health ministry reported 20,294 new cases, taking the total to 7.33 million and the seven-day moving average of new cases to above 12,400. A government spokesperson said on Wednesday no extra restrictive measures are on the agenda for now. The government hopes that a high vaccination rate will limit the number of people needing hospital care. However, authorities may ask companies once again to make greater use of home-working.
