The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has reported a 90 percent reduction in the number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus, which has killed more than 13,000 people worldwide.
But the number reported in the United States remains high, and a total of 1,921 cases were reported there as of Friday morning.
The National Institutes of Health, the nation’s largest health research agency, reported the same numbers in the U.K. A CDC official told CNN the agency was aware of the Uyghur cases reported in Germany, but it was not immediately clear whether the cases in Germany were connected.
It is an amazing blessing, said Dr. Andrew Kupchan, director of the CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Disease.
Kupchan said that as the pandemic has intensified, the number reporting cases in the US and other countries is now about 1,000 per day.
He said that number would likely drop further as people stop getting sick and seek medical attention.
In Germany, the news comes as the country prepares to host the Olympics, which begin this week.
The CDC reported Friday that the virus has killed nearly 6,500 people in Germany since March and has claimed the lives of 1.3 million people.
The virus has been spreading across the continent since early February and has killed thousands of people, with more than 2,300 confirmed cases.
The Uyghanistan outbreak has led to a spike in migrant arrivals from neighboring countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey.
An estimated 400,000 Uygan refugees arrived in Germany over the weekend.
Some Uyogas were reported to have been infected with the virus.
One Uyogo died of the virus in Germany on Sunday, and another had a fever, according to German news agency DPA.
The third died at a hospital in Germany after having traveled to Turkey.
The United States and many other countries have been under an unprecedented lockdown for the past several days, with a federal order that allows some people to leave their homes, but bans them from traveling outside.
