France has recorded 24 deaths in the hospital over the past 313 hours due to covid-19, bringing the total death toll since the start of the pandemic to 53.816, health officials announced today.

The number of new daily cases in the country was 14.064 in the last 24 hours, up from the figures of the previous two days, with 2.244.635 cases of covid-19 confirmed in France since the beginning of the pandemic.

There are currently 27.013 people hospitalized due to the virus and 3.488 of these patients are admitted to intensive care. The number of people hospitalized and people in serious condition continues to fall in the country.

In order to prepare for the recovery of the economy in 2021, the French Government today advanced that it will pay 10 days of vacation to those who were partially unemployed in 2020 due to the pandemic.

These vacation days must be taken between January 01st and 20th, thus allowing workers to take their vacations without accumulating them for a period that is expected to be more active and relieving the bosses who should pay them in full.

Some of the sectors covered by this measure will be restaurants and hotels.

The covid-19 pandemic has already claimed at least 1.482.240 deaths resulting from more than 63,8 million cases of infection worldwide, according to a report by the French agency AFP.
