BERLIN, March 16 (Reuters) - German coronavirus infections are again spreading exponentially, up 20% in the last week, an expert at the Robert Koch Institute for infectious diseases said on Tuesday.
“We are exactly on the flank of the third wave. That can no longer be disputed. And at this point we have eased the restrictions and that is speeding up the exponential growth,” RKI epidemiologist Dirk Brockmann told German ARD television. (Reporting by Emma Thomasson Editing by Riham Alkousaa)
