Germany’s economy minister has sounded the alarm, warning that he expects the number of new coronavirus infections in Germany to stand at 20,000 a day by the end of this week.

Like other European states, Germany is currently struggling with an uptick in coronavirus cases.

“We are dealing with exponential growth,” Peter Altmaier told a German-French economic conference via video link. “In Germany the number of new infections is rising by 70-75 percent compared to the week before.” (RT)
