Coronavirus Live Updates: U.S. Covid-19 Hospitalizations Hit Another Record


#Germany recorded its highest daily death toll since the start of the pandemic as officials across #Europe warned the continent was heading for another surge of cases in the wake of holiday gatherings.

#Germany’s #Robert #Koch #Institute for infectious diseases registered 1,129 deaths from #Covid-19 on #Tuesday, the first time the country has crossed the one-thousand mark.

#New daily cases have dropped markedly in the past week, with the institute registering 22,459 new cases on #Tuesday, down from 24,740 a week earlier. #But the institute warned this was likely due to the fact that fewer tests were being performed or processed during the holidays and that some local health authorities may not be properly logging new cases. #It said a more accurate picture of the impact of the lockdown should only be visible in next week’s data.

#Germany is considering extending its current lockdown, which expires on #Jan. 10, amid signs that the measures haven’t delivered a sustained fall in new infections and hospitalizations. #Central and state government leaders will meet on #Tuesday next week to consider a possible extension.

The number of new cases reported in the U.K. on #Tuesday hit 53,135, a single-day record. #Over the past seven days, new daily cases averaged almost 39,000, 2½ times the level recorded a month earlier. #Deaths over the same period averaged 465 a day.

#On #Dec. 22, there were 21,286 people in U.K. hospitals with #Covid-19, according to the latest nationwide data available, almost matching the 21,683 hospitalized at the peak of the pandemic’s first wave in early #April.

#In #France, the government is moving to lower its curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 p.m. in parts of the country where the disease is circulating strongly. There were 11,395 cases on #Tuesday, which is still down compared with a week ago, but the rate of people testing positive for the virus increased to 2.9%.
