In Germany, the number of new corona infections has fallen for the third day in a row in the past 24 hours.
From Sunday to Monday, 10,824 cases were added, reports the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the German equivalent of the RIVM. That is more than 6,000 fewer than the day before when 16,947 cases were reported.
Until Friday, when 23,542 new infections were registered, Germany recorded record numbers of new cases for days. But the partial lockdown that has been in effect for two weeks now appears to be causing declines.
The German government nevertheless seems to want to tighten up the existing corona restrictions. The German news agency DPA reported earlier that Chancellor Angela Merkel would present these stricter measures to the prime ministers of the federal states on Monday.
