Germany has a common National Pandemic Plan,  which describes the responsibilities and measures of the health care system actors in case of a huge epidemic.
Epidemic control is executed both by the federal authorities such as Robert Koch Institute and by the German states. The German states have their own epidemic plans.
In early March, the national plan was extended for the handling of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The plan has three stages, which might eventually overlap due to regional differences in the evolution of the pandemic: .
In the containment stage health authorities are focusing on identifying contact persons who are put in personal quarantine and are monitored and tested.
Personal quarantine is overseen by the local health agencies. By doing so, authorities are trying to keep infection chains short, leading to curtailed clusters.
In the protection stage the strategy will change to using direct measures to protect vulnerable persons from becoming infected.
The mitigation stage will eventually try to avoid spikes of intensive treatment in order to maintain medical services.
As early as January , the German Bundestag was fully informed about the dangers of the global spread of a coronavirus pandemic. A risk analysis predicted how dangerous a global coronavirus outbreak could be.
It stated that "children [ It further stated that a "vaccine" is "unavailable", so all the more important is the "use of protective equipment such as protective masks, goggles and gloves".
New travel advisories would not be necessary. On 27 January, after the first infections in Germany, the government continued to regard the probability of a spread as "very low".
Even if individual cases emerged, authorities would be able to treat them. At a press conference on 28 January, the Federal Minister of Health, Jens Spahn , said he was worrying only about conspiracy theories that were circulating on the Internet, and that the Federal Government would counter this problem through full transparency.
Hotlines were established to calm down worried callers. After a case was suspected in a Lufthansa plane, the company suspended all flights to China.
On 29 January, reports surged that masks were sold out. The government ordered pilots of flights from China to describe the health status of their passengers and ordered passengers to fill in a contact document.
The government and health authorities expected more isolated cases but were confident to prevent further spread. On 30 January, on national television a virologist referred to the government calling the flu wave of more dangerous than coronavirus as negligent and downplaying.
On 1 February , German Health Minister Spahn warned that people infected with the Coronavirus and their contacts might be stigmatised and be socially excluded.
He emphasised that the Germans evacuated from China would all be healthy. He decidedly rejected measuring the temperature of inbound travellers.
This was the second shipment after Germany had sent 5. Wolters , was asked by senators if there were plans for restricting U.
He pointed to Germany as a potential candidate. Games and training for FC Wegberg-Beeck were suspended.
On 28 February, Germany first entered the top ten of countries that had the highest number of coronavirus infections as number nine, in Europe second only to Italy.
The officials imposed a day home isolation for people who had had direct contacts with individuals in the current cases as well as people who showed flu symptoms.
Train railway companies must report passengers with symptoms to authorities and the federal police would step up checks within 30 kilometres of the border.
The Ministry of Health of North Rhine-Westphalia advised against panic buying , especially of masks, medications and disinfectants, to leave them for those really in need, assuring there would be no shortage of supply even in the event of a quarantine.
On 1 March, the number of confirmed infections almost doubled within one day. German Interior Minister, Horst Seehofer , expressed his optimism that a vaccine would be available by the end of the year.
The Finance Minister, Olaf Scholz , said the government was prepared for a stimulus package to mitigate the economical impact. The Health Minister, Jens Spahn , recommended that people with symptoms of a cold should avoid mass events.
The German Health Minister dismissed the closure of borders or companies or ending large events or direct flights between China and Germany as unnecessary or inappropriate.
On 4 March, the crisis team considered the acquisition of more protection gear as an "extraordinary urgency". Germany prohibited the export of protection masks, gloves, and suits.
North Rhine-Westphalia declared to order one million masks. The Health Minister, Spahn, warned that the consequences of fear could be far worse than the virus itself.
Spokespersons of Greens and FDP praised the government for its management of the crisis. AfD-leader Weidel disagreed and also proposed measuring fever at airports.
SPD health policymaker Bärbel Bas said measuring fever made no sense because not all infected had it. The leader of the World Health Organization , Tedros Adhanom , expressed concern that some countries showed an unwillingness to act or gave up.
He admonished all countries to raise their commitment to the level of the threat. On 6 March, the German Health Minister Spahn ruled out "any measure leading to restrictions on travel" within the European Union and spoke out against closing all schools and universities in Germany.
Spahn recommended not to make unnecessary travels and suggested people coming from risk areas should stay at home.
Spahn participated in a meeting with the other European Health Ministers to discuss the crisis.
The EU and Robert Koch Institute emphasised that masks and disinfectants should not be used by healthy private persons. On 8 March, the German Health Minister recommended to cancel events of more than attendees for the time being.
On 9 March, Germany reported the first deaths. The number of COVID infections had nearly doubled to more than within the last few days, which put pressure on the government to act.
Angela Merkel 's administration announced measures to cushion the economic blow. The government's spokesman, Steffen Seibert , said citizens could be "confident that the whole Federal Government, with the Chancellor at the helm, is doing everything possible to contain the spread of this virus".
On 11 March, having faced accusations of inaction the previous days, Merkel took the unusual step of dedicating an entire press conference on the topic of the COVID crisis.
She emphasised "We will do the necessary, as a country and in the European Union". She insisted again on not closing borders.
Merkel recommended everyone avoid shaking hands, for example by looking a second longer and smiling instead.
The German health minister added that mouth protection and disinfectants were needless for individuals and that it was enough to wash hands with soap rigorously.
On 12 March, U. They complained that the United Kingdom was not included. Its director, Stefanie Hubig, decided the oral examinations in Rhineland-Palatinate between 16 and 25 March would take place according to plan.
She also recommended cancelling class trips to risk areas. On 13 March 14 of the 16 German federal states decided to close their schools and nurseries for the next few weeks.
Germany's neighbours Czech Republic, Poland and Denmark closed their borders. On 14 March, the number of confirmed infections had increased to 4,, including nine fatalities.
For example, Berlin, Schleswig-Holstein and Saarland closed bars among other leisure venues. Cologne forbid all events in the city centre.
Shops noted a great increase in demand for provisions and sanitary products. The authors of the much-criticized  video later apologised for hurting feelings and defended their work stressing it was a satire using exaggeration.
On 15 March, local elections in Bavaria took place amid the crisis. Many election workers dropped out so that the elections were "acutely threatened" and teachers had to be conscripted on one day's notice.
The measure would begin on Monday and the transportation of goods and commuters would be exempt. On 16 March, the state of Bavaria declared a state of emergency for 14 days and introduced measures to limit public movement and provide additional funds for medicine supplies.
Bavarian minister president Markus Söder ordered closures of all sports and leisure facilities starting on 17 March.
Supermarkets, chemist's shops, banks, pet shops, and all businesses that sell essential basic needs are allowed extended opening times including on Sundays, while non-essential shops are to be closed at all times.
This also includes a prohibition on travelling in coaches, attending religious meetings, visiting playgrounds or engaging in tourism.
Limits on the testing capacity and a delay of three to four days meant reported numbers were significantly lower than the actual ones.
The Federal and State Governments agreed on a new emergency plan for German hospitals which includes doubling the current capacity of 28, intensive care beds, of which 25, are equipped with ventilation.
In an SEK operation with protection suits and tanks, police forces calmed the situation and relocated 17 offenders.
She also said the European Commission began to start a collective tender for medical gear. On 18 March, Germany widened its travel restrictions to EU citizens from Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Luxembourg and Spain, who had up to that time been able to arrive by flight or ship.
The passengers were not tested for the virus and their temperatures were not taken due to the absence of administrative orders.
The government began to bring back thousands of German travellers stranded in non-EU countries with charter flights. The public health insurance companies assured to cover all expenses related to the crisis with no limitation.
On 19 March, discussions of the Minister presidents of the German states and Merkel regarding a curfew were set for 22 March. The ministry explained to the press that they had received the messages but deemed itself not responsible and that the numerous offers could not be replied to due to prioritisation.
Some hospitals reported they were already facing shortages of protective gears. On 20 March, Bavaria was the first state to declare a curfew, inspired by and identical to Austria,  where it had been implemented four days before.
It would remain permitted to go to work as well as to supermarkets, medics and pharmacies, under the condition that the trip is solitary or with housemates.
Under the same condition, it is also permitted to do sports outside; to visit the life partner or aged, sick or disabled people who do not live in a facility; and to help others in general or provide for animals.
Restaurants except drive-ins and for take-away, DIY shops and hairdressers would be shut down. On 21 March, after more and more residents of refugee centres tested positive for the virus, asylum seekers were unsettled.
In Suhl, some threw stones at the police, threatened to set the residence on fire, and used children as human shields.
Refugee organisations demanded smaller residencies, including accommodation in hotels and hostels. Among others it would allow the health ministry to prohibit border crossings, track the contacts of infected persons and enlist doctors, medicine students and other health care workers in the efforts against an infectious disease.
On 22 March, the government and the federal states agreed for at least two weeks to forbid gatherings of more than two people and require a minimum distance of 1.
Restaurants and services like hairdressers were to be closed. Saxony joined Bavaria and the Saarland in prohibiting residents from leaving their dwellings except for good reasons, which are similar to the ones in the other two states; outdoor exercise is permitted under the new rules only alone or in groups of maximal five members of the same household.
Chancellor Merkel was quarantined because the physician who had vaccinated her two days earlier tested positive.
Berlin received masks from the nation's central provisioning, which would mean only one mask for every doctor's practice. Other Chinese tech companies like Oppo and Xiaomi also donated masks.
The lack of protective equipment, especially of face masks and disinfectants, led hospitals to re-use disposable masks.
Undertakers requested protective equipment and raising their status to being relevant for the system to get priority access to protective gear.
Most dentists practices did not have FFP-2 masks and some considered closing their practices. Klosterfrau Healthcare announced to donate , litres of disinfectants and Jägermeister provided 50, litres of alcohol for producing disinfectants.
A project to find out the exact percentage of free intensive care beds in Germany had been started by Deutsche Interdisziplinäre Vereinigung für Intensiv- und Notfallmedizin DIVI and half of all hospitals joined it.
On 25 March, the German Bundestag approved, with a large majority, the stimulus package which the government had decided on two days earlier.
On 27 March, the stimulus package passed the German Bundesrat with large majority. It came into effect the same day with the signature of President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Drägerwerk announced that the first respiratory devices of a total order of 10, by the health ministry were finished, but it was unclear where to deliver them.
Volker Bouffier suspected that his suicide resulted from worries about the future in the wake of the corona crisis crushing him.
On 29 March, in Berlin and Hamburg two demonstrations for the adoption of more refugees were considered a violation of the contact ban and were dispersed by police forces.
On 31 March, Jena was the first major German city to announce an obligation to wear masks, or makeshift masks including scarves, in supermarkets, public transport, and buildings with public traffic.
On 1 April, the project of a European Coronavirus app was publicised that, unlike apps of other countries, could satisfy the requirements of the EU's stringent data protection, releasable in Germany around 16 April.
The app would use Bluetooth to register close contact to other people with the app anonymously and warn the user when a person who had previously been in close contact officially registered an infection.
Most German politicians demanded that public usage should be voluntary. On 2 April, the Robert Koch Institute changed its previous recommendation that only people with symptoms should wear masks to also include people without symptoms.
A general obligation to wear masks in public, not supported by the federal government and most regional governments, was discussed.
It faced the counter-argument of general shortages of protection gear that could not even guarantee supply for the health care and maintenance system.
The number of cases from other medical sectors was not systematically collected and thus not known; most federal state governments and the Federal Health Ministry replied to a team of investigating journalists that no information could be given.
In Bavaria, where medical practices had been closed due to quarantine , lack of protection gear 82 and a lack of childcare 21 , the Bavarian State Ministry for Health and Care instructed its health departments not to answer the request for information.
On 7 April, the Robert Koch Institute, in partnership with healthtech startup Thryve, launched the app Corona-Datenspende Corona Data Donation for voluntary consensual use by the German public to help monitor the spread of COVID and analyse the effectiveness of measures taken against the pandemic.
The app was designed to be used with a range of smartwatches and fitness trackers to share anonymised health data for scientific purposes.
Project leader Dirk Brockmann said he hoped , people would sign up. A preliminary result, published on 9 April, from a study by the University of Bonn , based on a sample from 1, residents of Gangelt in Heinsberg district, North Rhein-Westphalia NRW showed that two percent of its population were infected, while 15 percent of the residents have developed antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, regardless of whether they showed any symptoms.
This constitutes a mortality rate of 0. The statement, which supplements its two predecessors, described strategies for a stepwise lifting or modification of measures against the pandemic, taking into account psychological, social, legal, pedagogic and economic aspects.
Re-opening of classroom primary and lower-level secondary education as soon as feasible, with observation of hygiene and physical distancing measures, was recommended.
The statement did not contain a timeframe for implementing its recommendations. On 15 April, after a video conference with the Minister Presidents of the 16 Federal states, Chancellor Merkel said Germany had achieved "fragile intermediate success" in slowing the spread of the virus, but restrictions of public life remained key to preventing the spread of the virus from accelerating again.
Shops with a retail space of up to square metres, as well as bookshops, bike stores and car dealerships, would be allowed to reopen to the public on 20 April, providing they followed specified conditions of distancing and hygiene.
It was agreed that large cultural events would not be allowed before 31 August. Merkel urgently recommended people to wear protective masks on public transport and while shopping, but stopped short of making them mandatory.
While the government and state governors started to reach agreement to relax some aspects of the social distancing protocols, large events would be banned until at least 31 August.
At the same time, she warned that the country continued to be "at the start of this pandemic". If infections were to resurge, which would be visible after two weeks, another shutdown would follow, an outcome which had to be prevented for the sake of the economy.
At the 28 April press conference, Wieler also warned of pinning too many expectations on a single indicator such as R , as this was "only one index among many".
He appealed to the public to apply physical distancing even as the federal and state governments began to relax restrictions on social movement, to "preserve" the success that had been achieved to date in the fighting the pandemic.
In Berlin, 27 authorised protests were held, each capped at a maximum of 20 participants. Most of those gathered appeared to keep a safe distance from each other;  however, from the early evening onwards, many hundreds were observed not to do so, leading Berlin's Senator for the Interior Andreas Geisel to sharply condemn the protesters for their "geballte Unvernunft" "bunched-up lack of common sense".
An assembly in Leipzig which, according to preliminary estimates by police, drew more than participants, received a spontaneous permit by authorities.
After a summit between Angela Merkel and state leaders on 30 April, the federal government allowed opening of museums, monuments, botanical gardens and zoos, and religious services under strict social distancing conditions.
On 4 May, the district of Coesfeld in North Rhine-Westphalia recorded infections, an increase by 53 cases from two days earlier.
It was reported that a large part of this increase had come from a proactive case tracing and testing of employees at a meat factory in Coesfeld city by the district health office.
The plant was allowed to continue to operate under tight supervision by the office. On a conference call between Chancellor Angela Merkel and 16 state premiers on 6 May, Merkel said that the goal of slowing down the virus had been achieved and that the first phase of the pandemic was over, while asking everyone to remain cautious so as not to cause a second wave.
At the same time, the federal government announced the lifting of more restrictions, while contact limitations would remain until 5 June.
Under the newly agreed conditions, a maximum of two different households can meet in public. All shops are allowed to open, schools and kindergartens may open in phases, people in care homes are allowed visits from one permanent contact person, outdoor sports without physical contact can resume, and Bundesliga matches may resume starting 15 May, behind closed doors.
The decision on specific opening dates, including those for the restaurant sector, has been left to individual states.
On 7 May, a test of employees at the Coesfeld meat processing plant, where cases had first been reported on 4 May, revealed were positive for COVID North Rhine-Westphalia State Health Minister Karl-Josef Laumann said that the shared accommodation of workers in tight quarters was a possible reason for the outbreak.
He also stated that the number of new infections in Coesfeld district had been 61 per , people over the previous week. The plant was closed until further notice, while schools and day care facilities in the district were allowed to open as planned on 11 May.
By the afternoon of 10 May, five locations in Germany reported an exceedance of the threshold: besides Coesfeld, these were the city of Rosenheim in Bavaria the latter having had a first exceedance on 7 May ; the districts Greiz and Sonneberg in Thuringia; and the district Steinburg in Schleswig-Holstein.
On 12 May, the Senate of Berlin agreed to a traffic light-type warning system for a re-tightening of coronavirus restrictions.
Besides the number of new infections per , residents in the preceding seven days, which had been agreed upon earlier by the federal government with the German states, it also considers the development of the reproduction number R and the capacity of intensive-care hospital beds.
On 13 May, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer announced that border controls with several neighbouring countries would be eased starting 15 May.
On that day, controls at the border with Luxembourg would be scrapped, and the goal would be to have free travel to Austria, France, and Switzerland starting 15 June.
On 14 May, the German government tabled a law aimed in particular at improving the protection of risk groups and enabling a better understanding of the progress of the pandemic.
It came into effect the following day. Regular contacts of persons at risk, such as in nursing homes, are to be subject to more thorough coronavirus testing, to recognise outbreaks early and to break transmission chains.
Laboratories are now required to report negative test results, and to provide the probable place of infection if available; data will be reported to RKI in anonymised form.
Carers in facilities for the aged, including volunteers and trainees, will be entitled to a one-off tax-free payment of up to 1, euros.
The costs of intensive care treatment of COVID patients from other European countries will be borne by Germany if the patients are unable to be treated in their home countries due to lack of capacity.
On 15 May, it was reported that Labour Minister Hubertus Heil was to present a government proposal on 18 May to Germany's "corona cabinet", aimed at improving hygiene standards in meat processing plants through measures including prohibition of subcontractors.
During the days prior, several German states had reported outbreaks in meat plants. On 20 May, in response to the recent outbreaks of COVID at several meat processing plants, the German government agreed on a new framework of regulations for the industry, including an effective ban on subcontracting at meat packing plants, as well as tighter supervision of any living quarters provided by the employers.
The draft was to be put into a law which still required parliamentary approval. New outbreaks at initial reception facilities called Ankerzentren in several German states and other housing for refugees continued to be reported in several parts of Germany.
On 21 May out of residents at an Ankerzentrum in Geldersheim , Bavaria, were reported to have been infected.
Several dozen residents had angrily demanded on 18 May that the quarantine, which by then had been in place for over seven weeks, be lifted.
A spokesperson of the local government of Lower Franconia expressed his understanding for the protests. On 23 May, local authorities in Frankfurt told a news agency that more than 40 people had tested positive for the coronavirus after attending a church service on 10 May.
It was reported that the church had adhered to official social distancing and hygiene rules. The plans of Thuringia State Premier Ramelow continued to be the subject of intense debate.
A survey by public broadcaster ZDF found that of those polled throughout Germany, 72 per cent were against Ramelow's plans. On 3 June, the German federal cabinet agreed to allow travels to all 26 EU countries, the United Kingdom, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein starting 15 June, subject to the pandemic being sufficiently under control in the destination country.
Travel warnings would still be maintained with regard to countries where large-scale curfews or entry restrictions remain in place.
Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that he anticipated Spain to open its borders to travellers on 21 June, rather than the currently set date of 1 July.
Norway stated that it would consider to allow entry from certain neighbouring countries, which would include Germany. On 9 June, the state cabinet of Thuringia agreed to lift most contact restrictions starting 13 June.
In the new Grundverordnung basic regulation , citizens are encouraged to strive to keep physical social contact with others at a low level, and to keep the group of people who they have such contact with steady.
The minimum physical distance requirement of 1. The use of face masks in public transport and in shops continues to be required.
Folk festival and sports event organizers may apply for an exemption from the general prohibition of such events. On 17 June, German authorities announced that a total of people had tested positive at a slaughterhouse run by meat processing firm Tönnies in the city of Gütersloh , out of completed tests.
Numbers were expected to rise once the total number of just over 1, tests had been completed. As a consequence, schools in the districts were closed until the start of the summer holidays on 29 June.
Tönnies apologized for the outbreak. Virologist Isabella Eckerle stated that she considered it "extremely unlikely" that the spate of infections had been the result of workers returning to their home countries in Eastern Europe over the preceding long weekend, and that a superspreading event was more likely to have been the cause of the outbreak.
Schools in Gütersloh would also close until the summer break. In the meantime, wide testing of the local population would be carried out to establish the extent of the outbreak; to that date, merely 24 positive tests had been returned from those who did not work at Tönnies.
In response to the development, Bavaria issued a temporary ban for hotels to accommodate guests coming from any district which exceeded the threshold of 50 infections per , residents in the past seven days, unless travellers could produce an up-to-date negative coronavirus test.
On 29 June, it was proclaimed by Laschet and Laumann that the lockdown of Warendorf district would end on the night of 30 June, while it would be extended in Gütersloh district by another week.
Germany officially entered a recession given that its economy contracted 2. As of 1 April, almost half a million companies in Germany had sent their workers on a government-subsidized short-time working scheme known as Kurzarbeit.
On 8 April, Germany reverted a travel ban for seasonal agricultural workers, allowing 80, Eastern Europeans to enter between April and May to harvest seasonal foods.
In a press release from 29 April, the Federal Government predicted that gross domestic product to decline by 6. On 22 May, in an article published in the Süddeutsche Zeitung , the German Council of Economic Experts stated its views on the design of the planned coronavirus recovery package.
In particular, it weighed in on the debate about whether the recovery package should include a higher cash incentive for buying electric cars, a plan which the Merkel government had favoured.
In his analysis, BA director Detlef Scheele said that while the coronavirus crisis had hit the labour market with unprecedented severity, it was coping reasonably well in his opinion.
According to the Federal Statistical Office , exports dropped in April by 31 per cent compared to the previous year, which was unprecedented since , when trade balance statistics began to be collected.
On 31 March, city-county Jena , Thuringia, was the first large German city to introduce an obligation to wear masks, or makeshift masks including scarves, in supermarkets, public transport, and buildings with public traffic, from 6 April, very successfully.
On 2 April, the Robert Koch Institute , the federal epidemic authority, changed its previous recommendation that only people with symptoms should wear masks to also include people without symptoms.
German chancellor Merkel and state governors first gave "strong advice" to wear face masks in public starting 20 April.
Saxony made it mandatory from that day, Saxony-Anhalt followed starting 23 April and the rest of Thurinigia starting 24 April, then finally the governors agreed to make it mandatory, so most other states followed starting 27 April, except Schleswig-Holstein , which introduced requirements starting 29 April, and Berlin, where shops were initially excluded but were then included starting 29 April.
In March, car manufacturers announced donations of several hundred thousand masks to hospitals, and health authorities. Daimler donated , masks of their pandemic protection reserve and BMW donated , breathing masks.
Volkswagen announced a donation of , masks of FFP-2 and FFP-3 types and were looking into manufacturing medical equipment parts.
They were the first shipment of a larger donation of medical equipment worth 40 million euros which were brought to hospitals and federal agencies in Hesse and Lower Saxony.
As stocks of protective gear have gone down, nations have been competing to obtain supplies with increasing urgency. Mask-related disputes were reported between Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
On 3 April, Berlin's Senator of the Interior Andreas Geisel accused the United States agents of appropriating a shipment of , 3M -made face masks meant for Berlin police from the airport in Bangkok.
German officials reported that U. German health officials and other experts have expressed concerns that the pandemic might allow Germany's anti-vaccination movement to grow its support base.
The movement is seen as having broad appeal to persons across the political spectrum like vegan chef Attila Hildmann who has accused the German state of working in the service of Bill Gates to promote forced vaccinations and a surveillance state.
The local anti-vaccine movement in Germany is robust and experts worry that refusals to vaccinate may hinder global efforts to eradicate the virus.
On 8 April , the Robert Koch Institute began using another method to estimate the numbers of recoveries, now also incorporating cases where the date of the first symptoms is unknown.
This caused the singular sharp drop in active cases on that date. New cases per day. New cases per active case.
New deaths per day. New deaths per active case. The effective reproduction number or reproduction rate, symbolised with R e , is a rate of how many more people are infected from a positive COVID case.
In order to suppress an outbreak, the reproduction rate must be constantly below 1, which means each positive case infects less than one person.
The Robert Koch Institute measures the reproduction rate as a moving 4-day average of the number of new symptomatic cases using a nowcasting according to the 4-day average number of new cases on a specific day and comparing it with the corresponding mean 4 days before, reflecting the spread of the disease roughly one to two weeks before any specific day.
As it is however prone to larger fluctuation, taking into account possible delays in reporting, a 7-day rate is then introduced, which compares the 7-day average of cases at one specific date with 4 days before.
Reproduction rate 7-day average. The number of tests is not the same as the number of persons tested, as the data may include multiple tests of patients.
For Germany, the cases are also broken down by state. Starting 10 March , due to continuously rising case numbers, RKI stopped manually updating the numbers and switched to adopting the numbers that were electronically transmitted.
New numbers were published once a day in the afternoon. Starting 17 March , new numbers are published at midnight for the previous day.
