France's daily coronavirus cases pass 10,000 for the first time
France for the first time has witnessed over 10,000 cases of coronavirus. The latest daily count, surpassing the previous record of 9,843 new infections reported on Thursday, highlights a resurgence of the disease in France. The rise led the govt to outline additional measures on Friday to avert a return to the general lockdown put in place earlier in the year. Prime Minister Jean Castex promised steps to speed up tests and toughen measures.
