PARIS, Oct 30 (Reuters) – French health authorities reported 7,360 daily new COVID-19 infections on Saturday, the first time the tally has topped 7,000 since Sept 21.
In another sign the virus is ramping up again, the seven-day moving average of daily new cases reached a more than one month high of 5,669.
