PARIS: France reported 11,795 new confirmed COVID-19 cases on Tuesday (Dec 22), up from 5,797 on Monday and nearly unchanged from 11,532 last Tuesday, and taking the total to 2.49 million cases, health ministry data showed.

On Mondays the number of cases usually drops because of weekend reporting lags.
