Earlier this week, Germany’s 16 federal states agreed on a set of measures meant to curb the ongoing surge in Covid-19 cases. They include harsher restrictions on gatherings, stricter mandates for wearing facemasks and curfews. Chancellor Merkel said she was not satisfied with the new guidelines because she believed they were not harsh enough “to avert disaster.”
The Friday update from the RKI reported 7,334 new Covid-19 cases in Germany in 24 hours, which increased the total national tally to 348,557. The death toll has reached 9,734 after 24 more people succumbed to the infection.
