Germany is at the start of an epidemic (official)

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Germany’s health minister says the country is at the start of an epidemic, urges local officials to prepare for a pandemic.

He urged health ministries in Germany’s federal states as well as hospitals and employers to review their pandemic planning.

“The infection chains are partially no longer trackable, and that is a new thing,” he told a news conference. “Large numbers of people have had contact with the patients, and that is a big change to the 16 patients we had until now where the chain could be traced back to the origin in China.”
