The number of new infections in Germany has risen significantly again in the last 24 hours.
Last Monday the number was 10,864. On Sundays and Mondays, the numbers are comparatively low because, according to the RKI, fewer samples are taken on the weekend and therefore fewer tests are carried out overall.
125 deaths in 24 hours
The German health authorities also reported 125 new deaths within 24 hours. The number of daily deaths had tended to increase recently, which was also expected after the steep increase in new infections. The total number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to a total of 16,248.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the RKI has counted a total of 1,053,869 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany (as of November 30, 00:00). It is estimated that around 739,100 people have now recovered.
According to the RKI management report on Sunday, the so-called seven-day R-value was 0.95 (previous day: 0.96). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 95 more people. The value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If the value is below 1 for a long time, the infection rate subsides.
