The number of infections in Germany hit a three-month high as the government urged citizens to keep their guard up and stick to public health guidelines.

The country's disease control authority reported 1,226 new infections, the highest number since early May, although the figure has topped 1,000 in several days recently.

"This is worrying, without doubt," Health Minister Jens Spahn told a local radio. "And it can naturally lead to a new dynamic, if we don't all now exercise caution," he said adding that smaller and mid-sized outbreaks have occurred in almost all regions, largely driven by travelers returning from abroad and people partying or having family gatherings.
