LATEST: Two more die from virus here amid record surge in global infections

Two more people have died after contracting the coronavirus as just four new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed this evening.

It brings the overall death toll as a result of the virus here to 1,717. There are now 25,383 confirmed cases of Covid-19 across the country, according to the latest daily briefing from the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).

While the low rate of fatalties and new cases is very welcome news here, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reported a record increase in global coronavirus infections, with the total surging by 183,020 within a 24-hour period.

The biggest increase, of more than 116,000, was from North and South America. Total global cases have passed 8.7 million with more than 461,000 deaths, the WHO said.

Germany’s coronavirus reproduction rate jumped to 2.88, up from 1.79 a day earlier, a rate showing infections are rising above the level needed to contain the disease over the longer term.

The rise brings with it the possibility of renewed restrictions on activity in Europe’s largest economy, a blow to a country that so far had widely been seen as successful in curbing the coronavirus spread and keeping the death toll relatively low.

To keep the pandemic under control, Germany needs the reproduction rate to drop below one. The rate of 2.88, published by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for public health, means that out of 100 people who contract the virus, a further 288 people will get infected.

In China, officials in the capital Beijing are running tests on tens of thousands of food and parcel delivery workers to detect virus traces in a bid to rein in a new outbreak.

The country has stepped up oversight of imported foods after a new cluster of cases was linked to a sprawling wholesale food market in its capital just over a week ago.
