Number of daily coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Germany since January 2020

The coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic in Germany peaked in the last week of March 2020, with high new daily case numbers still being recorded a few days later in the beginning of April. New case numbers began decreasing towards late spring and declined further as June arrived, then climbed once again come July. September brought with it a fresh spike, with worries about a 'second wave'.

Staying home

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation on March 11, 2020. This declaration immediately impacted life in Germany on all levels. Rising coronavirus (COVID-19) case numbers in March-April led to the swift implementation of nationwide distancing and crowd control measures to stop further spread of the virus, which primarily transferred most easily from person to person. From a large-scale economic shutdown, venue, school, daycare and university closures, to social distancing and the contact ban officially implemented by the German government, seemingly in the space of days life as the population knew it came to a standstill in the whole country.


Later in April, Germany began easing some of the restrictions related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak as case numbers began to drop. Elements of uncertainty remain and touch on various aspects, for example, regarding national mental and physical health, both among adults and children, the possibility of long-term effects from the virus, immunity. A rising worry among European nations is economic recovery, with higher GDP losses already predicted.
