In Germany, more than 50,000 people have died in connection with the coronavirus since the pandemic began.

© The  German health authorities reported 859 new deaths to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within 24 hours, as the RKI announced. This brought the total number of deaths to 50,642. Exactly one week ago, 1,113 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours. ©

 The  high of 1,244 new deaths was reached on January 14th.


 The  RKI counts verifiably infected people who died directly from Corona and those with previous illnesses for which the cause of death cannot be conclusively clarified as a Covid-19 death. It is at the discretion of the health department whether to submit a case to the RKI as deceased “to” or “with” Covid-19. Researchers assume that the number of Covid-19 deaths would be many times higher without the corona restrictions.


 The  health authorities also reported 17,862 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. Exactly one week ago, the RKI had recorded 22,368 new infections. ©

 The  highest level of 33,777 new infections registered within 24 hours was reported on December 18 – but this included 3,500 late reports.


 The  number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (seven-day incidence) was 115.3 according to the RKI. Its previous high was reached on December 22nd at 197.6. ©

 The  number fluctuated after that and has been falling again for a few days. ©

 The  differences between the federal states, however, remain large: Thuringia has the highest incidences with 218.4 and Brandenburg with 194.4. Bremen has the lowest value with 80.9.


 The  RKI has counted 2,106,262 proven infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic. ©

 The  actual total number is likely to be significantly higher as many infections are not recognized. ©

 The  RKI stated the number of people recovered to be around 1,780,200.


 The  nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.93 (previous day: 0.87) according to the RKI situation report from Thursday evening. This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 93 other people. ©

 The  value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a long time, the infection process subsides.
