MADRID, 12 (EUROPA PRESS)

The authorities of Germany have reported this Sunday another 248 additional cases of coronavirus and three more died in the last 24 hours due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus, according to the updated balance of the Robert Koch Institute, the official agency responsible for the control and monitoring of infectious diseases in the country.

In total, Germany registers 198,804 cases and 9,063 deaths since the declaration of the epidemic in the country, as reflected in the balance, which also marks a decrease in cases compared to 378 on Saturday and low compared to the six deaths the day before.

A total of 184,600 people have been cured of the disease, after some 300 recoveries in the last day, the usual rhythm in the country.

Bavaria, North Rhine-Westphalia and Baden-Wurtemberg remain as the three states with the highest number of cases and deaths. Bavaria registers 49,204 infections and 2,612 deaths, North Rhine-Westphalia confirms 44,915 cases and 1,704 fatalities and Baden-Württemberg has confirmed 36,041 cases and 1,837 deaths.

The capital, Berlin, for its part accumulates 8,637 people infected by the virus. There, 217 people have died.

On the other hand, the country has dawned this Sunday with the news that its automobile giant Daimler plans to cut more than 15,000 jobs, a figure higher than the one that the company managed in the first place, increased by the coronavirus crisis.

Thus, the group, which has approximately 300,000 employees worldwide, will not limit itself only to layoffs for operational reasons, but also foresees massive cuts in personnel, as indicated by the company’s own head of human resources, Wilfried Porth, to the SWR chain.

Although at the beginning the figures that were considered were around 10,000 and 15,000 employees, Porth has confirmed that this figure may be higher. “And we need to do it to avoid more layoffs,” he added.
