The health authorities in Germany reported 4426 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. In addition, 116 more deaths were recorded within 24 hours, according to figures from the RKI on Monday.
The data reflect the status of the RKI dashboard from 5.30 a.m.
Exactly one week ago, the RKI had recorded 4535 new infections and 158 new deaths within one day. On Mondays, the number of cases reported by the RKI is usually lower, partly because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend.
The high of 1,244 newly reported deaths was reached on January 14th. In the case of new infections registered within 24 hours, the highest value was reached on December 18 with 33,777 – but it contained 3,500 late reports.
Seven-day R-value is 0.88
The number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (seven-day incidence) was 58.9 nationwide on Monday morning, according to the RKI. Four weeks ago, on January 17th, the incidence had been 136. Its previous high was reached on December 22nd at 197.6. Most federal states continue to record falling seven-day incidences, according to the RKI.
The total number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 65,076.
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.
