The second-highest daily count on record for Germany
This shows that the virus situation isn’t quite abating just yet, but the figure it at least not growing exponentially as it has been doing in October.
There are now roughly ~240,000 active cases across the country.
The number of deaths is keeping on the high side as well, with another 215 deaths reported – following the 261 deaths yesterday, which was the highest since April – and that brings the total tally on that front to 11,982 persons.
It looks like it will still take some time before the virus trajectory turns the corner, and the hope for German officials is that it will be some time in the next week or two at least.
