Germany reports 3,883 new coronavirus cases, 415 deaths in latest update today


The lower case count is good news but deaths are still not at desired levels

The daily case count is keeping on the low side and that is a welcome development but local authorities will surely prefer the death count to come down even quicker during this period. The 7-day incidence rate holds above 60.0 at 60.5 today.

Meanwhile, total active cases across the country eases to ~118,700 – still roughly the lowest since the end of October last year.

In terms of healthcare capacity, there were 3,060 (+3) virus patients requiring intensive care as of yesterday with there being 4,950 (18%) intensive care beds still available.

That suggests that hospitalisations and medical capacity remains somewhat stretched despite the improvement in daily cases in recent weeks. There is a lag time in observing the correlation between the two but so far it isn’t showing up just yet.
