German health officials have recorded a total of 782 cases in the past 24 hours, far from the increase of more than 2,000 cases on Saturday, albeit amid widespread outbreaks.
With those numbers, the country has already had 232,864 cases since the pandemic was declared.
Likewise, two more people have died in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths since the pandemic started to 9,269. This comes out from figures from the Robert Koch Institute, the official authority responsible for carrying out the balance sheets of the pandemic in the country.
The coronavirus peaked in Germany in early April when it registered more than 6,000 cases per day. However, in the past few weeks the downward trend has reversed, raising concerns about a second wave of infections, although the number of tests has increased significantly in recent weeks, which explains part of that growth.
A total of 207,000 people have recovered from the disease – around 500 in the last few hours – in the state where North Rhine-Westphalia is still most affected (56,784 cases, 1,798 deaths), followed by Bavaria (54,858) cases, 2,633 Deaths) and Baden-Württemberg (40,031 cases, 1,863 deaths).
The capital Berlin has registered 10,717 cases and 226 deaths.
