The daily death count is still a rather concerning statistic
This reaffirms that the virus situation in Germany is still keeping rather tense with active cases across the country seen around ~314,300. Meanwhile, total deaths have now increased to 42,637 as of the latest count today.
In case you missed it, German authorities are planning to approve tighter controls on people entering into the country - expected today - after Merkel warned that lockdown measures may even extend all the way to April at this rate.
In terms of healthcare capacity, there are 5,230 (-59) virus patients requiring intensive care as of yesterday with there being 4,581 (17%) intensive care units still available.
