A second coronavirus outbreak has begun in Germany. It is much smaller in scale than the first one. All hospitals in the country are ready for the next influx of patients with COVID-19.
вЂњWe are already in the second, low wave of growth [in the number of detected COVID-19 cases]. Hence the danger that by a combination of pushing back the threat and returning to normal life, we can squander the successes that we have achieved in Germany, вЂњ- the publication Augsburger Allgemeine quotes the head of the Marburger Bund doctors Union Suzanne Jonah.
The interlocutor noted that the second wave of the pandemic is much smaller in scale than the one that began in MarchвЂ“April. All medical facilities are ready for the influx of COVID-19 patients. There will be fewer infected people, so hospitals will allocate a limited number of infectious beds.
German epidemiologists are not yet in a hurry to call the increase in the number of detected cases of infection with a new virus the second wave of the pandemic. In total, more than 212 thousand cases of COVID-19 were detected in Germany. 9161 people died.
