France estimates over 40K unconfirmed COVID-19 cases

French health authorities said on Thursday they believe there are over 40,000 unconfirmed coronavirus cases in the country.

The French Public Health Agency cited the country's doctors' Sentinelles Network as estimating that 41,836 people with COVID-19 visited a general practitioner last week. However, those patients were not tested for the disease.

According to official data, France has 25,233 confirmed coronavirus cases and 1,331 recorded deaths. However, president of the French Hospitals Federation, Frederic Valletoux, warned the death toll is also much higher as the government's figures only account for people who died in hospitals.
