PARIS (Reuters) – French health authorities said on Tuesday more than 7,500 patients were treated in hospital for COVID-19 disease, marking a three-months high and an increase of more than 65% versus Aug 29 low point of 4,530.

The government has put in place restrictions all over the country – such as bars ordered to close at 10 pm in Paris – to contain the second wave of the disease and avoid the hospital system from being overwhelmed.
