The new lockdown measures came into effect after Lars Schaade, the deputy head of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for Infectious Diseases, Germany’s public health institute, warned the country would see over 400,000 new daily Covid-19 cases by Christmas without action.
On Tuesday, the RKI’s coronavirus data showed Germany reported 15,352 new cases, taking the total number to 560,379, and 131 new deaths, increasing the death toll to 10,661. However, while that reflects a slight flattening of the curve, the R number is still at 1.17, above the 0.7-1 target it needs to hit.
