There are almost five thousand new coronavirus infections in Germany today, the highest figure since May. This was announced by the Robert Koch Institute, commissioned by the German government to monitor the progress of the covid-19 pandemic in Germany. The growth of new cases is linked to the spread in the country of the Delta variant, which is particularly contagious.
Compared to yesterday, 4,996 more positives and 14 deaths were confirmed in Germany. The total number of cases at the onset of the pandemic is thus updated to 3,799,425 and that of deaths to 91,817.
