PARIS, July 8 (Reuters) - The number of deaths in France from the new coronavirus has risen by 32 from the previous day to stand at 29,965 the country’s health department said on Wednesday.
That figure is almost twice as high as the daily average of 18 seen over the last seven days. In June, France counted 34 additional deaths every day on average, in May 143 and in April 695.
France has the sixth-largest death toll in the world. (Reporting by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Catherine Evans)
