France records 1,130 new COVID-19 cases in 24 hours

PARIS, July 24 (Reuters) - France recorded 1,130 new COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, the health ministry said on Friday, in a fresh sign that the rate of infection is accelerating again after the government eased lockdown restrictions.

It was the second consecutive day that the daily number of new cases exceeded 1,000.

The ministry, in a statement, said the figures showed the need for people to show discipline by limiting unnecessary exposure and respecting hygiene rules. (Reporting by Christian Lowe and Nicolas Delame Editing by Chris Reese)
