Coronavirus: Germany 'flattens the curve' as Spain pandemic cases surge (Sky News)

The pandemic continues to take hold across the world, but data in Germany and China shows infection rates may be slowing.

Germany's coronavirus infection curve could have now flattened, according to the country's public health chief, as cases across elsewhere in Europe and the US continue to surge.

On Monday, the country said that the upward trend it was seeing in the number of COVID-19 cases seems to be levelling off, in part thanks to social distancing measures to deal with the outbreak. Lothar Wieler, head of the country's health institute, said: "We are seeing signs that the exponential growth curve is flattening off slightly. "But I will only be able to confirm this trend definitively on Wednesday."

In Spain however, cases have continued to surge, with 4,517 more people diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last day - a rise of 15% on the previous day. The total number of confirmed cases in the country stands at 33,089 - the second highest number in Europe. 2,182 people have now died in Spain, after testing positive for COVID-19.

3. Me too!


I've been watching Italy's utterly tragic numbers as well for signs of hope.
