The number of new cases of Covid-19 detected in Germany in the last 24 hours has marked its maximum value in the last 105 days with 1,449 infected, reports this Friday the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), a leading epidemiological center.
“Health denies a health collapse but admits a “second wave” after infections soared to almost 3,000 daily”
This is the highest number of cases since May 1, when 1,639 were registered, and represents a small increase compared to 1,445 the day before, maintaining the upward trend of recent weeks. It is still far, however, from the more than 6,000 newspapers that were recorded in early April.
If in June the average of new daily cases had stabilized between 300 and 350, the average has risen significantly in recent days, with six days above the thousand infected since August 6.
Thus, the total number of Sars-CoV2 infected in Germany rises to 221,413, of which about 200,000 are considered to have overcome the disease. The death toll with or from COVID-19 rises to 9,225, after adding 14 in the last 24 hours.
The daily reproduction rate or R-value is 0.91, which means that each patient infects less than one person on average. The average R-value of the last seven days is however somewhat higher, 1.06, according to RKI data.
RKI experts and the German Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, have expressed concern in recent days about the evolution of the pandemic in recent weeks, while schools begin to reopen and in the media, there is talk of a new second wave.
