Germany has reported 86 deaths and a total of 22,672 cases of novel coronavirus on Monday.
Lothar Wieler, the president of the Robert Koch Institute, the national agency for disease control and prevention said the average age of those deceased is 82 years old.
57% of the deceased are men and 43% are women.
As Germany's cases continue to rise, Wieler once again pleaded for citizens to practice social distancing.
“Please keep a distance of at least 1.5 to 2 meters, please stick to the hygienic rules, wash your hands and sneeze into your elbow," Wieler said.
"In Germany we have a lot of test capacity, in comparison to other countries," he said. "Our test capacity is increasing all the time, the tests itself are there, but we have to test with a target.”
