 The  previous high was reached on December 22nd at 197.6.

 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  total number of people who died with or with a proven Sars-CoV-2 infection rose to 67,841.

 The  RKI gave the nationwide seven-day R-value on Saturday afternoon as 1.07 (previous day 1.01). That is the highest value in 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.
