PARIS (Reuters) - The number of deaths in France from the new coronavirus has risen by 21 from the previous day to stand at 29,752, the country’s health department said on Thursday.

France has the fifth-highest coronavirus death toll in the world, although the number of casualties has steadily decreased from peaks reached in March and April, which has allowed the government to gradually re-open businesses and some schools.
