The pandemic of the new corona virus originating in the Chinese city of Wuhan has left 351 new cases and three deaths in Germany in the last 24 hours, compared to 412 infections and four deaths the previous day, which corresponds to a total of more than 199,000 infected people and more than 9,000 deaths, according to the balance offered on Wednesday by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the government agency responsible for monitoring the pandemic.
In the past 24 hours, the country has added another 351 cases for a total of 199,726 and three more deaths, bringing the death toll to 9,071. The number of people recovered is more than 186,000 after around 500 discharges have been registered in the past 24 hours.
In this context, Health Minister Jens Spahn on Monday demanded that the Germans should not give up their vigilance. “The danger of a second wave is real,” he said when he appeared next to RKI President Lothar Wieler.
Spahn did not hide his concern about the arrival of the summer vacation, a particularly good time to relax preventive measures, and insisted, among other things, to maintain social distance and the use of the mask.
