They do, however, report regional data for the total number of people hospitalized for Covid-19 and how many of those people have recovered or died.

The New York Times has found that official tallies in the United States and in more than a dozen other countries have undercounted deaths during the coronavirus outbreak because of limited testing availability.

Where You Can Find More Information

Read more about the virus’s impact on France’s economy, from its job market to its sacred wine industry, on poor urban suburbs, on a cherished summer ritual for French-Algerian families, and on the famous Seine river bank booksellers in Paris. It also disrupted - but did not stop - two of France’s most widely-watched sporting events: the French Open and the Tour de France.

Here is where you can find more detailed information:

France has centralized official coronavirus-related information and documents — like the waivers needed for personal outings — on this website (a more limited version is available in English). The government also releases daily statistics on the outbreak here. Key numbers and more detailed breakdowns are also available via the national public health authority.

The foreign ministry has an English guide for foreign visitors to France and instructions on the newly-required travel certificates.

About the data

The Times has identified the following reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data:

April 4, 2021: After a delay in reporting data, France added a backlog of cases.

March 24, 2021: After a delay in reporting data, Public Health France reported several days' worth of data, causing a spike in cases.

France does not regularly report new data on weekends.

Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.
