first_imgTopics : France’s increase of new COVID-19 cases sharply decelerated on Monday, as is always the case on that day given there are fewer tests conducted on Sundays, but hospitalizations and deaths linked to the disease shot up again.The government has recently ramped up measures aimed at containing the resurgence of the virus and avoiding a second national lockdown, with bars ordered to close at 2000 GMT (10 p.m. local time) in Paris and several other big cities starting from this Monday.French health authorities reported 4,070 new COVID-19 infections over the past 24 hours, sharply down from Saturday’s third-highest ever tally of 14,412 and Sunday’s 11,123. (Graphic: But the seven-day moving average of new infections, which smoothes out reporting irregularities, stood at 12,083, above the 12,000 threshold for a fourth day in a row, versus a low of 272 on May 27, two weeks after the country ended its two-month-long lockdown.The cumulative number of cases now totals 542,639.The number of people hospitalized for the disease has gone up by more than 150, going over the 6,400 threshold for the first time since July 21.That is still five times lower than the April 14 peak of 32,292 but up by 41% versus a low point of 4,530 seen at the end of August.center_img France imposed one of Europe’s strictest lockdowns between March 17 and May 11 to prevent its hospital system from being overwhelmed.And while the present figures may seem nowhere near the highs recorded in spring, medical experts fear the addition of COVID-19 and seasonal diseases such as flu might worsen the situation very quickly. The number of COVID-19 patients in intensive care units has reached a three-month high of 1,158, far lower than the April 8 peak of 7,148.The number of people in France who have died from COVID-19 infections rose by 81 to 31,808, versus 27 on Sunday and a seven-day moving average of 67.

first_img The development is hugely significant given Woodward was due to return home on Sunday anyway, rather than fly onto Japan for the next leg of United’s five-match tour. Whilst it is not known where Woodward is going to, or which deals he is going to be working on, it will not stop intense speculation about his plans. Woodward’s departure comes on the same day United revealed they had turned down a bid from Chelsea for striker Wayne Rooney – a player boss David Moyes has maintained is not for sale. United remain confident of securing the services of Cesc Fabregas despite Barcelona’s insistence the player wants to remain at the Nou Camp. Senior figures within the Red Devils camp are of the opinion Fabregas wishes to join them, although it may take more than the £26million they bid for the player earlier this week. In addition, Everton duo Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini have been strongly linked with moves to join their old boss at Everton. There is an acknowledgement at United that the massive shake up during the summer, with the departures of both manager Sir Alex Ferguson and chief executive David Gill have left the club with a bit of catching up to do in the transfer market. Thus far, the only signing of the summer has been Uruguay Under-20 defender Guillermo Varela, who has not even reported for duty yet. Thiago Alcantara and Kevin Strootman, who were both strongly linked with United, have opted to join Bayern Munich and Roma respectively, leaving Moyes still needing to sign the additional midfielders he believes are required. It is not clear what deal Woodward might be needed to work upon but Press Association Sport understands he told United officials of his immediate departure whilst they were at Wednesday night’s State of Origin match at ANZ Stadium. Woodward was not at the game but will instead land in Europe at some point on Thursday. Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward has left the club’s tour of Australia early to carry out some urgent transfer business.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
