Health authorities in Germany are sounding the alarm about the growing number of COVID-19 cases. Today8217;s figures show a huge increase in the seven-day-average to more than 150 confirmed infections per 100,000 people. Hospitals have been pleading with the government to tighten restrictions. Doctors also point out that the average age of COVID-19 patients in intensive care units is getting younger.
Despite repeated warnings from health workers about the urgency of the situation, German lawmakers are mired in a fierce political debate over restrictions imposed to fight the pandemic. A new law to fight COVID-19 is in the works, and a decision is due Friday.
But Doctors on the front line are frustrated.
The question remains: How many more Germans have to die, before lawmakers do something substantial to stop the surge of COVID-19?
