In Germany, where the third wave of coronavirus outbreaks is taking place and case increases continue, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Chief of Staff Helge Braun made a frightening statement. “We are in the most dangerous phase of the epidemic. The coming weeks will show whether we can contain the pandemic within a predictable period of time.”
After German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated that there had been a third wave of coronavirus outbreaks and the measures were extended, a statement came from Merkel’s Chief of Staff Helge Braun.
“We are in the most dangerous phase of the epidemic. The coming weeks will show whether we can contain the pandemic within a predictable period of time.”
Noting the danger of mutated viruses, Braun said, “Due to the mutated virus, the virus has become vaccine resistant. Then we will need new vaccines, and then we need to start vaccinating again.”
“DAILY NUMBER OF CASE CAN FIND 100 THOUSAND”
Meanwhile, Lothar H. Wieler, president of the Robert Koch Institute, recently said that if the spread of the virus is not prevented in the outbreak, the number of daily cases could reach 100,000.
German Chancellor Merkel announced that restrictions against the risk of a third wave of coronavirus outbreaks in the country have been extended until April 18th.
“There is a new pandemic. Essentially there is a new virus of the same type, but with completely different characteristics. It is significantly more deadly and more contagious, causing disease for longer. Unfortunately, we will have to use this emergency brake.”
The total number of cases reached 2,772,401 with the detection of 17,176 new coronavirus cases in the country in the last 24 hours.
As a result of the coronavirus, 90 people lost their lives, bringing the total number of fatalities in the country to 75,870.
