Since the first known case of COVID-19 in France was confirmed until now, a total of 178,870 infected people and 27,425 deaths have been officially registered.
Currently 2,299 people are critically hospitalized and fortunately 59,605 have already been recovered. Let us remember that these data are the officially offered by different administrations from France.
The current population of France is 63,644,343, based on latest World Bank and United Nations data.
In France, the rate of infection stands at 281.05 cases per 100,000 people, therefore, as of today, it is estimated that the 0.281% of the population is officially infected.
World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that the coronavirus kills about 3.4% of the people it infects. But that death rate varies between countries and across age groups. It’s also likely to change over time.
Comparing WHO estimations against the France death rate, over the total number of patients, which is 15.33%, we see a difference of 11.93%.
