The state reported 229 new deaths, bringing the state total to 1,232 deaths and reported 3,326 new cases, bringing the total to 44,416.

France, meanwhile, has definitively joined the UK in bucking the broader trend in Western Europe by reporting some more alarming data, including its largest one-day jump in deaths. The country reported 1,417 new deaths, bringing the total to 10,328. France reported another 11,059 new cases, bringing its total to 109,069, breaking above 100k, becoming only the third country in Europe with more than 100k cases. The country’s death toll also broke above 10k, a feat that has also only been accomplished by Italy, Spain and the US. Iran is on the cusp of 10k according to its official figures, but most suspect that both Iran and China have seen thousands of deaths that have gone unreported.
