More than 100 persons have been infected with the Coronavirus in Germany by Monday morning with the first German national being killed by the virus during a trip abroad.
A German tourist in Egypt died of the respiratory disease caused by the Coronavirus on Sunday. He is the first German national to be killed by the virus during this crisis. At the same time this is the first Coronavirus death on the African continent.
A few days ago, the 60-year-old man had traveled to the Red Sea resort of Hurghada from Luxor, the Egyptian authorities said. On Friday, he had been taken to a hospital with high temperature and tested positive. According to the information from Egypt, his condition worsened until he died on Sunday.
In spite of the fact that the number of confirmed Coronavirus cases is high in Germany, so far nobody inside the country has died as a result, as far as the health authorities can tell. The very first patient of the second wave, a 47-year-old man in North Rhine-Westphalia, had been in critical condition until his condition improved.
Police Officer Infected
The official number of Covid 19 infections in Germany was 1040 early on Monday morning. Almost 500 of them were confirmed in North Rhine-Westphalia, while Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg in Germany’s south-western part reported 200 cases each.
The city state of Berlin had 40 Coronavirus cases. One of the infected is a police officer. During the weekend, the police department said 35 of the patient’s colleagues had been sent into quarantine. What this means is that Berlin’s overburdened police will be even busier. If this is the first of more cases of this kind, the implications will likely be difficult to deal with.
Difficult Disease Process
Out of Berlin’s 40 Coronavirus patients, at least four are being treated at the Vivantes Clinic Neukölln and the Charité Virchow Clinic. Further south, in Bavaria, two patients are not well, according to the local health authorities. One of them is an elderly man, the other one had a pre-existing condition.
