In Germany, the number of coronavirus-related deaths reported within 24 hours has risen sharply and reached a new high. The German health authorities reported 590 new deaths within one day to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), according to the RKI figures from Wednesday morning. This is over 100 cases more than the previous record of 487 deaths last Wednesday. A total of 20,815 new infections with the coronavirus were reported within 24 hours. On Wednesday of the previous week, the figure was still 17,270. The highest daily figure to date was on November 20 with 23,648 cases.

The number of daily deaths had recently been on the rise, which was expected after the steep increase in new infections. The total number of people who have died from or were involved in a proven infection with SARS-CoV-2 rose to 19,932 on Wednesday.

For the whole of Germany, the RKI also announced a new record of 149.1 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days. At the beginning of the partial lockdown in November, the figure had been around 120. The federal and state governments want to reduce this figure to less than 50, so that health authorities can trace infection chains again.

The RKI has counted 1,218,524 confirmed infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic, and estimates that around 902,100 people have now recovered.
