August 1, 2020

Germany has registered 955 new cases of coronavirus in the last 24 hours for a total of almost 210,000 infected people, as reported on Saturday by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the government agency responsible for fighting infectious diseases.

These 955 cases represent an increase from the 870 recorded on Friday, so that the RKI fears that the downward trend observed so far will reverse. There are already 209,653 infected people, including 9,148 deaths and 192,700 genes.

The RKI has detailed that the virus or R reproductive rate, taking into account the past ten days, is 1.06 – compared to 1.02 the previous day – meaning that on average each person can do it differently infect.

In view of the increase in infections, which are mainly associated with outbreaks in slaughterhouses and social events, Germany has intensified controls. Therefore, it has been recommended not to travel to some countries – Catalonia, Aragon and Navarre have been identified as risk areas in Spain – and as of this Saturday, free COVID-19 tests have been offered to travelers returning to the country.
