On the 3rd local time, the Robert Koch Institute, the German federal disease control agency, held a press conference to warn of the current severe epidemic situation.
Weller, director of the institute, pointed out that although the trend of new confirmed cases every day in Germany is relatively stable, it is still at a high level, especially the protection of the elderly, because of the recent frequent cluster infections in nursing homes, and the number of COVID-19 deaths has increased significantly.
According to Weller, health agencies across Germany are seriously overloaded, unable to track and block the infection chain, and intensive care beds are also on the verge of limits. He admitted that the number of deaths from the novel coronavirus in Germany may continue to rise. Germany’s epidemic prevention goal will remain to keep the number of new confirmed cases low.
According to the latest data released by the Robert Koch Institute in Germany, as of 00:00 local time on December 3, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Germany has reached 1106,789, an increase of 22,046 from the previous day; the cumulative number of deaths has reached 17,602, an increase of 479 more than the previous day.
