France has recorded 35 deaths with the new coronavirus in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic to 29.813, according to the country's health authorities.
Of the 29.813 people who died, 19.325 were admitted to hospitals and the rest to nursing homes and support centers.
In France, 8.688 people remain hospitalized - after authorities registered 102 new admissions in the last 24 hours - of which 619 are in serious condition in intensive care services (15 fewer than on Sunday).
The Paris region, eastern Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Hautes-de-France continue to be the most affected, making up 74% of the country's cases.
In the report on the evolution of the pandemic, the French Ministry of Health explained that the situation in the continental territory is "stable", although it is still aware of the appearance of outbreaks, while the situation in the overseas territory of Guyana remains "worrying", forcing the work on reducing contagion chains.
The authorities insist that the virus continues to circulate throughout the country, as shown by the numerous outbreaks that are being detected: 293 since the beginning of the deflation, in the beginning of May.
French Health Minister Olivier Véran today announced a € 300 million package to reevaluate the salaries of health professionals involved in fighting the pandemic.
However, the unions have already criticized this figure, asking to be revalued to 7.000 billion euros, accusing the Government of not giving the required response.
The covid-19 pandemic has already claimed more than 501 deaths and infected more than 10,16 million people in 196 countries and territories, according to a report made by the French agency AFP.
The disease is transmitted by a new coronavirus detected in late December in Wuhan, a city in central China.
After Europe succeeded China as the center of the pandemic in February, the American continent is now the one with the most confirmed cases and the most deaths.
