Compared with other large European countries such as the United Kingdom and France, Germany has achieved greater success in containing the pandemic, but the number of cases has been steadily increasing in the past few weeks. On Thursday, Germany reported more than 10,000 new daily COVID-19 infections every day for the first time.
