Germany’s Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases has warned that the country’s cases could surge to 100,000 every day if the spread is not controlled.
Lothar Wieler the RKI President warned that if the spread of infections is not bought under control then Germany could see as many as “100,000 cases per day.”
Weiler also said that the current third wave could be far worse than the first two waves as the Kent “virus will spread uncontrollably,” as it is more infectious.
Speaking to a press conference he said, “The current situation worries me very much. It is possible that we will see 10,000 new cases a day.
“It is possible that the virus will spread uncontrollably.”
Weiler added, “We are at the beginning of a third wave. It was caused by variant B117.
“And this variant, as you all know, as we all know, is even more contagious and dangerous. And it is therefore also more difficult to curb this.
“There are very clear signs that this wave will be even worse than the first two waves.
“We have to prepare ourselves that the case numbers will increase significantly, that more people will get seriously sick again, that hospitals will be overwhelmed and that many people will also die.
“We are only at the beginning of this development and if we don’t immediately counteract this, then the consequences will be grave.”
Germany reported 21,573 more cases on Friday with the total cases now stands at 2,734,753 since the start of the pandemic.
