Health authorities in France say the number of those who have died after contracting the deadly COVID-19 virus is now 14,393 with fewer people admitted into intensive care for fourth day in a row.

However, the country reported a drop in coronavirus deaths on the previous 24 hours as there were 315 deaths in hospital over the last day, compared with 345 the day earlier.

Globally, more than 109,000 people have died from the new coronavirus and confirmed infections topped 1.7 million.

The update comes after British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, left hospital on Sunday to convalesce from COVID-19 at Chequers, his country estate.

A Downing Street spokesman said the 55-year-old prime minister will not be immediately returning to work, on the advice of his medical staff.

“The PM has been discharged from hospital to continue his recovery at Chequers.

“He wishes to thank everybody at St Thomas’ (Hospital) for the brilliant care he has received.

“All of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness,” the spokesman said.
