For better comparability, the Company also included the monthly sales performance before the pandemic in 2019. Compared to 2019, total product sales in 2021 were up 8% in all markets. In detail, April 2021 sales were up 3% in the U.S., 25% in Germany and 20% in the rest of the European markets compared to April 2019.

The sales increase compared to the previous year already perceived since mid-March 2021, especially in our most important sales market, the USA, continued strongly in April 2021. This indicates a significant recovery of the COVID-19 situation in the USA as well as in Germany - presumably also due to the high vaccination rates.
