While more than 4% of patients with coronavirus died worldwide in March, Germany’s Covid-19 mortality rate was just 0.4% — despite a high number of reported cases.
The number of new daily cases had dropped to around 500 a day in recent weeks, but rose to 815 on Friday, the RKI said.
Germany’s four-day reproduction rate was 1.28 on Monday, and its seven-day “R” rate was 1.10, according to the Institute.
The UK government reported 685 new cases on Monday, with cases remaining relatively stable in recent weeks.
This is why caution and attention are still needed,” said Health Minister Roberto Speranza.
