German health officials this Sunday reported a decrease in the daily cases of COVID-19 recorded in the country after adding another 625 in the past 24 hours.
After several days of over 1,400 infections, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the authority responsible for combating infectious diseases, has confirmed the decrease in cases, although it has reminded that not all local authorities are transferring data for the purpose of week.
There are currently 223,453 cases of coronavirus registered in the country since the health crisis hit and 9,231 deaths have occurred. The peak of new infections occurred in April with 6,000 cases daily. After more than 1,000 infections occurred in May, the number tended to decline, but has increased again since the end of July.
Experts have raised concerns that infections could rise sharply, limiting the authorities’ ability to track chains of infection.
