The yellow bars show the number of reported cases, the blue ones only the onset of symptoms. The occasional sudden drops are usually on a Monday because of delayed weekend data.

In the following weeks, some schools began allowing some pupils to return to class. Since then, the country's different states have eased measures further - with some even allowing restaurants and bars to open.

While numbers of new infections have fallen below 1,000, and remain way down on their peak, worries remain that easing restrictions will drive infections up again.

The latest figures from Germany, not on the chart, show a daily rise of 933 cases.
