Fairly little affected during the first wave of the coronavirus epidemic that hit Europe in February and March, Germany had chosen to deconfinate earlier than its neighbors, from April 20. If for several weeks this choice had seemed to pay off, with a fairly low contamination rate, the weekend of May 9 and 10 could put the government's choices into perspective. Several homes have been identified in the past 48 hours in the country.
“The epidemic is spreading in three different places in Germany, including a slaughterhouse where there are more than a hundred employees who have been infected. At the national level, the numbers are deteriorating. This is an indicator to be taken with caution, since it’s very volatile, but now each patient on average infects more than one other person. This means that the epidemic is progressing again “, explains, directly from Berlin, the journalist Laurent Desbonnets.
