Incidence increases slightly to over 60
The health authorities in Germany have the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within a day 7676 new corona infections reported. Also were 145 new deaths registered in connection with the virus within 24 hours, according to numbers from the RKI on Sunday. On Sunday, the number of cases reported by the RKI is usually lower, partly because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend.
The data reflect the status of the RKI dashboard from Sunday at 3:10 a.m., subsequent changes or additions to the RKI are possible.
The high of 1,244 newly reported deaths was reached on January 14th. With 33,777 new infections registered within 24 hours, the highest value was reached on December 18. However, it contained 3,500 late registrations.
The number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (Seven-day incidence) was included nationwide on Sunday morning according to the RKI 60,2 – and thus higher than the day before (57.8).
The previous high was reached on December 22nd at 197.6.
The total number of people who have had a history of Sars-CoV-2 died are ascended 67.841.
The RKI gave the nationwide Seven-day R-value on Saturday afternoon with 1,07 on (previous day 1.01). That’s the highest value for several weeks. This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 107 more people. This could indicate that the more contagious virus variants are spreading faster despite the lockdown. (dpa)
