Germany reports 294,000 fresh COVID-19 cases amid relaxing travelling measures


The Germany has reported the most cases of COVID-19 infections since the start of the pandemic, shortly after the country announced plans to ease travel rules and ease some of its home restrictions.

On Thursday, March 17, The Robert Koch Institue (RKI), the German body responsible for disease prevention and control, has updated that Germany has registered about 294,000 new cases.


The actual cases of novel coronavirus could also be even higher than Robert Koch Institue (RKI) reported because self-tests are excluded in the final report of positive cases.

Data from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) shows that 90.6 percent of the entire adult population in Germany has already completed primary vaccination. In multiplication, another 69.2 percent has obtained an additional vaccine dose too.

German ministers previously announced plans to lift most of their COVID-19 restrictions by March 20 gradually. Nonetheless, Germany’s Health Minister, Karl Lauterbach, said the Government should reconsider the decision to ease the rules.

Lauterbach added that the country’s current situations are going very critical and could be more dangerous in the future, and suggested the authorities continue to apply covid measures and obligations on entry and travel rules of the country until the numbers of the infections start decreasing.

The rise in cases of COVID-19 infection in Germany also follows the easing of travel restrictions for foreigners. German authorities previously announced that arriving passengers would no longer be subject to the same strict travel rules as before.

Since March 3, all countries have been removed from Germany’s high-risk list. Officials have explained that all travelers arriving in Germany from the EU/Schengen Area or any third country placed on the Safe List are allowed restriction-free entry without having to comply with additional entry rules, such as post-arrival testing and quarantine requirements.
