According to the German disease and epidemic control center, Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the number of confirmed coronavirus cases rose to 99,225, with a total of 1,607 deaths reported on Tuesday.

Cases rose by 4% to 3,834 in Germany, marking the fifth straight drop in the daily rate. The death toll jumped by 173.

Despite the slowdown in the new cases, the rise in deaths doesn’t seem to be welcoming news, given that the government may want to consider scaling back the lockdown measures.

The Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said that there isn’t enough data to support loosening of restrictions.

Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus infections rose more than 1.32 million globally, with 74,087 deaths, according to a Reuters tally.
