BERLIN, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Germany's COVID-19 cases rose by 2,153 to 280,223 over the past 24 hours, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases said on Friday.

The death toll from the disease increased by 15 to 9,443 it added.

Germany's Minister of Health Jens Spahn said on Monday that he wanted to prepare the country for a potential increase in COVID-19 infections during the cold season by setting up outpatient clinics and a new testing strategy.

"In autumn, we need regional and local so-called fever outpatient clinics to which patients with typical respiratory symptoms, such as corona and flu, can turn," Spahn told the German newspaper Rheinische Post.
