The coronavirus pandemic killed 833 French people in just 24 hours, making it the nation’s deadliest day since the global outbreak started in China and quickly spread to the rest of the world.
Health Minister Olivier Véran warned Monday that despite the tragic figure, France has still not yet seen the worst of the virus, BBC News reported.
“We have not reached the end of the ascent of this epidemic,” he said. “We must keep up our efforts as citizens by staying at home."
The total number of cases, combining hospital and nursing home statistics, increased by 5,171 between Sunday and Monday to 98,010.

By early Tuesday, the number of infected climbed to 98,984, meaning France will likely become the fifth country, after Italy, Spain, the United States and Germany, to reach the 100,000-case milestone.
Véran attributed the spike in part to French officials’ recent decision to present figures that include data from nursing homes, which have been particularly hard hit amid the pandemic. He said deaths at facilities across the nation account for almost 27% of those killed overall.
Nursing homes deaths also rose 10% to 2,417 over the weekend, bringing the total to 8,911 as of Sunday, according to Reuters.
The recent numbers out of France also mark the first acceleration in deaths after several days of slowing.
According to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, there have been a total of 1,359,398 coronavirus cases and more than 75,000 deaths worldwide.

Citing lack of masks and soap, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez fears Brooklyn federal jail is ‘powder keg of coronavirus infection’

Measures to combat a COVID-19 outbreak inside a federal jail in Brooklyn are woefully inadequate, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez wrote in a letter Monday, detailing screwups she fears will make the lockup “a potential powder keg of coronavirus infection.” Soap is in short supply at the Metropolitan Detention Center on the Sunset Park waterfront, according to the letter Velazquez sent to the Bureau of Prisons Monday. Yet correctional officers and other staff are prohibited from bringing alcohol-based hand sanitizer or their own face masks to work. Staff are rotated in and out of four housing units in quarantine without adequate protective gear, Velazquez wrote. Correctional officers who go home with COVID-19 symptoms are routinely ordered to return to work “in a couple days,” according to the letter. Meanwhile, the jail holding 1,700 inmates is one of the busiest in the federal system, with 150 or 200 inmates coming or going from the facility per we…

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is making progress in his battle against coronavirus after a brutal week that included shivering so violently that he chipped a tooth. The newsman, brother of Gov. Cuomo, was on “day 11” Monday, marking the time since he first exhibited allergy-like symptoms, his wife, Cristina Cuomo, posted in an update on Instagram. “Many have asked how Chris is doing and what meds he’s taking. Here’s an update,” she said in a post that began with, “Every day is a gift.” “After one week of up and down symptoms — chills, body aches, total exhaustion, sleeplessness, and a fever that hit 103, he is on day 11 today, (day 1 being first day of allergy-like symptoms) — he seems slightly better, but still feels the…
