More than 100,000 deaths from COVID 19 have been recorded in Germany since the start of the pandemic.
The country has been hit by a fresh surge of cases of the virus that has caused health facilities to be overwhelmed.
According to the Robert Koch Institute, the country has recorded 351 deaths in the past 24 hours, raising the total to 100,119.
As the rate of infection continues to surge, the government has enforced strict measures with the aim of curbing the spread.
Some hospitals have already been hit with an acute overload of the virus that has made it necessary to transfer patients abroad.
Last week, Germany announced that it will now require people to prove that they have been vaccinated or recently tested negative before being allowed on public transport or into workplace.
The worst-hit cities have even gone a step further by issuing lockdowns.
The rise in COVID 19 cases has even forced people to demand drastic measures like Austria where vaccination has been made mandatory for everyone.
