GROSS-GERAU CIRCLE – The second corona death in the Gross-Gerau district was already registered on Saturday. The district administration announced on Tuesday. An 85-year-old woman from the district had died in the Gross-Gerau hospital as a result of a coronavirus infection.

They appeal to the citizens of the district to take the ban on contact with other people seriously and to keep their distance. “The corona crisis has not yet been overcome. We must continue to discipline the restrictions in order to keep the number of new infections as low as possible.”
