 France coronavirus death toll jumps 240 to 1,100: official

 
PARIS, 24 March. - (ANA) - The coronavirus has killed another 240 people in France, the top French health official said, bringing the death toll in the country from the pandemic to 1,100.
 
Jerome Salomon told reporters that 22,300 people had tested positive for the virus in France, with a total of 10,176 hospitalised of whom 2,516 people are in intensive care. 
 
Officials believe that the published number of those infected largely underestimates the real figure, as only those showing severe symptoms are usually tested.  - (ANA) -
