The map uses figures from regional health agencies and national health agency, Santé publique France, and has been put together by French media BFMTV.

The most affected regions are Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Hauts-de-France and Île-de-France, while there are four cluster sites, foyers de contamination, in Oise, Haut-Rhin, Haute-Savoie and Morbihan.

At least 91 cases are related to one infected site in Oise (Hauts-de-France), where a 60-year-old teacher and a 89-year-old woman have died from the virus.  

The number of cases continues to rise with the fourth death being a 92-year-old man in Brittany yesterday.

The first fatal victim was a 81-year-old Chinese tourist hospitalised in Paris at the end of January.

Twelve people are reported to have recovered from the virus so far.
