The German authorities have registered 436 new cases of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours as part of a pandemic, in which 216,327 positive cases have already occurred in Germany, according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), which is monitoring the expansion of the virus.
The death toll has risen to 9,197, one more than on Sunday, while the number of those recovered is 197,400, according to the institute.
Of the states, Bavaria is already hardest hit with 51,848 infected people, ahead of North Rhine-Westphalia with 51,762. The capital Berlin has so far recorded 9,698 positive results.
Germany peaked the contagion curve in April when it recorded data of more than 6,000 positives every day and began reopening in May. Since July, the country has suffered a number of outbreaks related to slaughterhouse and farm laborers, but also to reactivating social life.
Among the recently announced measures, Angela Merkel’s executive is also enforcing negative COVID-19 test results or conducting them “in situ” for anyone intending to enter Germany from areas considered high risk due to the increase in infections, including Catalonia, Aragon and Navarre.
