The German health authorities reported 6,729 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. In addition, 217 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours, as the RKI announced on Monday morning. Last Monday, the RKI recorded 7,141 new infections and 214 new deaths within 24 hours. However, the data from Rhineland-Palatinate were only incompletely transmitted at this time.
The number of cases recorded is usually lower on Mondays, partly because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend.
The high of 1,244 new deaths was reached on January 14. With 33,777 new infections registered within 24 hours, the highest value was reported on December 18 – but this contained 3,500 late reports.
The number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (seven-day incidence) was 111.2 on Monday morning, 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 RKI stated the number of people recovered at around 1,823,500.

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.
What is the RKI?
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) is an independent higher federal authority. It is a public health facility and monitors the health of the entire population of Germany. Another central area of the RKI is research; the institute is the central research facility of the Federal Republic of Germany.
President of the Robert Koch Institute has been Lothar H. Wieler since March 1, 2015, who has been the focus of reporting since the outbreak of the corona pandemic in Germany.
How does the RKI get the current corona numbers?
The RKI regularly announces the current number of corona cases in Germany.
The offices must adhere to strict rules.
Covid-19 cases that meet the RKI case definition must be electronically transmitted by the responsible health department to the responsible state authority by the next working day at the latest.
From there, the information must be transmitted to the RKI no later than the next working day. This data must not contain the name, place of residence or contact details of the person concerned.
