Coronavirus: German Daily Death Toll Surpasses 1,000 For The First Time


Germany recorded a total of 1,129 deaths from coronavirus within the last 24 hours, reported the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases on Wednesday.
It is the first time that more than 1,000 daily deaths from COVID-19 have been reported in the country.
This is an increase from the previous record number of 962 deaths within 24 hours — registered on Wednesday last week.
The RKI also registered 22,459 new coronavirus infections within the same 24 hour time period.
The high daily death rate comes as Germany is in the middle of a second hard lockdown. Most stores, along with bars, clubs and restaurants are closed. Schools and daycare centres are also largely closed. The measures are set to remain in place until January 10.
