From Sunday, September 11 to Monday, September 12, 4,579 new cases of Covid-19 were reported in France. Less than the previous day (16,422), but compared to Monday, September 5 (3,443). The incidence rate increased again. It is 178.2 cases per 100,000 population, compared to 173 on Sunday.
The number of tests conducted in the last two weeks has also been increasing. The incidence rate is increasing, especially in children under 10 years of age. This increase started just before the start of the school year and increased with the return to school.
