Germany touches the maximum number of infections in one day: 74,352 positives

The Robert Koch Institute of Germany has registered 74,352 infections in the last day, the third maximum of the pandemic, behind the 75,961 and 76,414 on Thursday and Friday of last week. In addition, 390 people have died in the last 24 hours. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the European nation has added 102,568 deaths and 6,051,560 positives from covid-19, which places it as the fourteenth country with the most deaths from the disease, according to the Statista portal. Since late summer, Germany’s coronavirus infection curve has been in an upward position, which has set off alarms across the country, which has registered records of infections in the last two months. The authorities attribute this increase in positive cases to what they have called “an epidemic of the unvaccinated”, and have repeatedly urged the population that has not done so to be immunized against covid-19. On Thursday, Acting Chancellor Angela Merkel, her successor, Olaf Scholz, and the leaders of the 16 federal states agreed to extend the restrictions to the more than 14 million adults who have not been immunized. Among the new measures, there is a prohibition to access bars and places of entertainment or to meet two people at the same time outside of their family nucleus. In addition, they plan to make vaccination mandatory from February 2022. (Reuters)
