The increase in corona virus cases a few days after the social restrictions began to relax in Germany, raised the concerns that the pandemic could once again get out of control.
In the daily newsletter, the Robert Koch Disease Control Institute announced that the number of people infected by each sick person now rises to 1.1.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the relaxation measures Wednesday, which included the opening of more workplaces and back to school, one of the leaders of 16 federal states in Germany, unable to withstand pressures to restart social life and stimulate the economy.
Robert Koch Institute said today that the number of new corona virus cases increased by 667 people daily to 169 thousand 218, and the number of daily deaths increased by 26 people to 7 thousand 395.
The institute said in a separate daily bulletin published on Saturday evening, "It is too early to predict whether the number of new infections will continue to decrease or start to increase again, as in the past weeks." he said.
