This comes as France's death toll from the new coronavirus infection has exceeded 12,000, according to the country's health ministry.

Fifty COVID-19 cases have been registered on board France's Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier, the country's defence ministry said. 

"The tests confirm 50 COVID-19 cases on board. Three sailors have been evacuated on an aircraft, to be taken to a hospital in France," the French Defense Ministry said in a communique.

Tests have been conducted over suspicions that 40 crew members could be infected.

The aircraft carrier is on the way to its home port in Toulon, the ministry added.
