The case count appears to be leveling off but the death count remains a concern as it remains on the higher side

The latest update sees active cases across the country ease back to under 300,000 for the first time since 10 December, with active cases standing at ~288,400. However, total deaths have now increased to 47,622 persons and remains a major concern.

German chancellor Merkel and state leaders are reportedly expected to meet again today to extend and tighten restrictions further beyond January, as fears are growing over new virus strains that may be more contagious.

In terms of healthcare capacity, there were 5,003 (+32) virus patients requiring intensive care as of yesterday with there being 4,865 (18%) intensive care units still available.
