France’s national healthcare body warned Friday (16 September), about an increase in COVID-19-related deaths. To protect their health, it urged citizens not to stop getting vaccinated.
According to the Sante Publique France, there were 186 cases of COVID confirmed in France between 5 and 11 September. This represents an average daily 18,000 cases and an increase of 12% compared to the previous week.
Emer Cooke, executive director of European Medicines Agency stated last week that Europe’s citizens need to get any COVID-19 booster vaccine available due to the anticipated fall in infection rates.
New infections have been steadily increasing over the past 10 days. The seven-day moving average of daily new infections per day hit a record high of 24,042 on Thursday (15 September), an almost 5-week-high.
