Yesterday, 1,045 new cases were registered. For the first time since May, this figure exceeds 1,000, but is still well below the peak since April, when there were more than 6,000 new cases in one day.
The numbers of new infections for one day are variable, but yesterday’s data confirm the trend of recent weeks to increase new cases and the emergence of small outbreaks in different parts of the country, notes the Associated Press. Regarding the figures announced today, the Robert Koch Institute reiterated that “this development is of great concern.” Last week, Germans were urged to wear masks and maintain a social distance.
The German response to the COVID-19 crisis has so far been considered relatively successful. According to official data, the confirmed cases of coronavirus in Germany are 213,000 and the number of deaths is 9,175, ie the mortality rate is lower than in other comparable countries.
