Germany surpasses the thousand daily deaths due to the coronavirus for the first time | Society


#Germany has exceeded the threshold of 1,000 deaths per day due to the coronavirus for the first time this #Wednesday, a record number registered at a time when the country is experiencing a second confinement due to the rebound in cases. The #Robert #Koch #Institute (RKI), competent in the matter in the country, has reported 1,129 fatalities due to or with covid-19. The previous one-day high was 962, and it was reported a week ago. #In addition, 22,459 new infections have been recorded, a number below the maximum of 33,777 infections on a day in mid-December. #After coming off relatively well during the first wave and holding off the second well into the fall, #Germany has gone from being the exemplary student to one of the hardest hit countries in #Europe.

The total number of infections since the beginning of the pandemic thus rises in #Germany, with 83 million inhabitants, to 1,687,185, of which 1,302,600 are recovered patients. The number of fatalities since the start of the pandemic reaches 32,107. The weekly incidence per 100,000 inhabitants stands at 141.3 cases, below the maximum of 197.6 cases on #December 22. #This incidence shows great territorial unevenness, since in the land in #Saxony (east) it stands at 330 weekly cases, while in #Lower #Saxony (center) it is at 79.6. #From the 50 cases in seven days, the RKI considers that it is in a risk zone, reports #Europa #Press.

#Authorities tightened restrictions due to the rebound and most shops, bars and restaurants are closed, containment measures that will be in effect until #January 10. #However, the federal government has already hinted at the prospect of prolonging the current drastic restrictions until later than initially planned. #On #December 27, the vaccination campaign against the coronavirus began, as in the rest of the #European #Union.

The #Minister of #Health, #Jens #Spahn, already advanced last night from public television that the closure of public life and the limitations on contacts should probably be maintained, although without specifying their level. #Chancellor #Angela #Merkel and regional leaders, who are responsible for implementing the measures, are expected to meet on #January 5 to assess the situation.

#Since #December 16, non-essential shops have been closed – except for food stores and other products for daily use, opticians and orthopedics, pharmacies, banks, post office, gas stations and, in some states, bookstores. These closings were added to those of nightlife, cultural life and gastronomy, in force since the beginning of #November.

The school holidays were brought forward a few days and will last until #January 10, more than usual, with the intention of containing the pandemic. #From groups of teachers, it has been questioned whether school activity can be resumed fully in person.
