BERLIN (Bovotv) - The death toll from the coronavirus in Germany has exceeded 50,000, a number that has already exceeded has risen rapidly in recent weeks, although the number of infections has finally declined.

The Robert Koch Institute, the country's disease control center, announced on Friday that a further 859 deaths had been reported in the past 24 hours, which means the number of 50,642,

 in Germany was comparatively low, the number of deaths in the first phase of the pandemic and many restrictions were quickly lifted.

 However, there were much higher infection rates in autumn and winter. Hundreds of deaths have been reported daily in the land of 83, sometimes more than 1,000 million people in recent weeks. Germany reached the 40,000 mark on January 10th. 

 President Frank-Walter Steinmeier will let a light shine in a window at o'clock The Bellevue Palace in Berlin is in memory of the dead and those who are fighting for their lives every evening from Friday, his office said. He encouraged other Germans to do the same. 40-440-4 Steinmeier plans to lead a central event in memory of the dead after Easter. 40-440-4 The lights are a sign that "the deaths in the corona pandemic are not just statistics for us," Steinmeier said. "Even if we don't know their names and families, we know that each number represents a loved one whom we miss infinitely." 
 Chancellor Angela Merkel echoed those comments this week, describing the recent death figures as "appalling." Still, he said daily infections are declining and slightly fewer people are receiving intensive care than at Christmas.

 In Europe, the United States, Italy, France and Spain, all of which have smaller populations, still have larger numbers. 

 The Robert Koch Institute, Lothar Wieler, said this week that the explanation for the high death toll is “relatively simple but relatively depressing.” 

 “The increase is simply related to the fact that the number of cases increased a lot. ”

Wieler said there are still many outbreaks in nursing homes, more than 900 today. Some households are better prepared than others to fight the pandemic, he said. There are also a large number of cases among those over 80 years of age.40-440-4 In general, new infections peaked in December.

This is down from a high of almost 5,800 on January 3, he said: "That was the most critical situation, in my opinion, since there has been intensive care in Germany." He added that there have been no signs of a Christmas or New Year spike. 

 Germany's current lockdown was extended this week until February 14 amid concerns about the possible impact of virus mutations such as the first detected in England. more people to work from home, reducing the number of public transport users. Restaurants, bars, sports and leisure facilities are closed from the beginning of November. In mid-December non-essential schools and shops followed, and professional sporting events are held without spectators. Merkel says a vaccine will be offered to everyone in Germany at the end of September. There has been frustration with the slow start of vaccines. By Thursday, nearly 1.39 million people had received a first dose and over 115,000 had received a second dose.

Britain had delayed giving the second dose up to three months to allow as many as possible to get the first dose. But Health Minister Jens Spahn signaled that Germany will not follow this example and point out concerns about the lack of study data and the need for the most vulnerable and older people to receive “comprehensive” protection.
