BERLIN, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Germany reported 13,554 COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, bringing the nationwide tally to 942,687, said the federal government agency for disease control and prevention on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, 249 more deaths were reported, taking the national death toll to 14,361, the Robert Koch Institute said.

Germany entered a partial lockdown in November in reaction to the second COVID-19 wave and rising infection numbers.

"If we stand together worldwide, we can control and overcome the virus and its consequences. This is also worth more effort," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Saturday in a pre-recorded video message released at an online summit of the Group of 20 major economies.
