RKI reports 12,332 new infections nationwide
The number of new infections with the corona virus remains at a high level, even if the German health authorities reported comparatively few new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) at the start of the week. Within one day, 12,332 new cases were submitted. That is over 1,000 cases more than last Monday, when the number of new infections reported was 11,168. The previous peak was reached on November 20 with 23,648 cases. The number of cases recorded is usually lower on Sundays and Mondays, partly because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend.
Schleswig-Holstein is the last federal state to exceed the 50 mark
Schleswig-Holstein was the last federal state in Germany to become a Corona “risk area” in the current wave of infections. In the past seven days, there were an average of 51.6 infections for every 100,000 inhabitants, as the state government announced. This exceeds the risk value of 50.1. On Saturday the seven-day incidence was still 48.9. The state government reported 154 new confirmed cases on Sunday evening. A week ago, 71 new infections were registered. According to the information, 114 Covid-19 patients are being treated in the hospitals, 24 of them are in intensive therapy, 12 have to be ventilated.

Nationwide day of action on the compulsory mask in trains and buses
