France recorded almost 10,000 new COVID-19 infections today, its highest ever single-day total, as hospitalisations also begin to rise. 

Health authorities reported 9,843 new confirmed coronavirus cases, beating by almost 900 the previous record of 8,975, set six days earlier.

Since the beginning of the month, new cases have gone up by 7,292 each day on average, a figure that blows away the previous record daily average of 3,003 seen in August.

After reaching a low of 4,530 on 28 August, the number of people hospitalised with COVID-19 is again trending upward, with an increase of 93 over the last 24 hours to 5,096, the highest total in more than a month.

The rise in infections has mainly affected young people who are less likely to develop complications from the virus.
