Minister: Germany High Levels of Wuhan Virus "Alarming"

Germany has seen the biggest rise in new daily cases of the Wuhan virus since April.

The health authorities in Germany have reported a total of 4,516 new Covid 19 infections in the past 24 hours. This was announced by the Robert Koch Institute. From Wednesday to Thursday the value had already risen considerably from 2,828 to 4,058.

The health minister Mr Jens Spahn described the biggest rise in new daily cases of the virus since April “alarming”.

According to the RKI, at least 314,660 people in Germany have been proven to have been infected with the Wuhan virus since the beginning of the crisis (data as of October 9, 00:00). The number of deaths related to an infection was 9,589. It is eleven more than the day before. Around 271,800 people survived the infection according to RKI estimates. This means that around 33,300 active cases are currently known in Germany.

Lothar Wieler, head of the RKI, said it was possible that Germany would see “more than 10,000 new cases a day”, and that “the virus will spread in an uncontrolled fashion”.

In 2019, 9.2 per cent of Australia's total exported goods were sold to European importers, according to RBA data. About 35 per cent of this volume was export to Germany.
