Germany continues to spread COVID-19… Health Minister urges further restrictions


Germany’s Health Minister Jens Spahn has urged further tightening of restrictions to contain the spread of COVID-19, Reuters reported.

On German radio, Minister Span said on German radio that access to more public places should be restricted to those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, those who have recently recovered from COVID-19 and those who have tested negative.

When asked if Germany is going into lockdown like Austria, he said again and again that nothing can be ruled out, adding that it will be decided by region.

In Germany, with the recent surge in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, the authorities are urgently responding, such as tightening restrictions.

Some states, such as Saxony and Bavaria, have already entered partial lockdowns, including closing pubs and clubs and canceling Christmas markets.

“The situation is not just serious, it’s dramatic in some areas,” Spawn said.

According to the Robert Koch Institute, the German Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of new infections per 100,000 people in Germany in the past 7 days as of today was 399.8, up from 386.5 yesterday.

The number of new confirmed cases was 45,326, a significant increase from 32,48 a week ago.

In the last 24 hours, 309 people have died from COVID-19.

This is also an increase from the 265 people a week ago.

As a result, the cumulative death toll from COVID-19 in Germany, which has a population of 83 million, has risen to 99,433, nearly 100,000.
