More than 16,000 new infections in Germany

German health departments have reported 16,417 new CoV infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. In addition, 879 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours, the RKI announced this morning. Exactly one week ago, the RKI had recorded 18,678 new infections and 980 new deaths within 24 hours.

The peak of 1,244 new deaths had been reached on January 14. The highest number of new infections registered within 24 hours, 33,777, was reported on December 18, but this included 3,500 subsequent reports.

Seven-day incidence at 112.6
The number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 population (seven-day incidence) was 112.6 on Saturday morning, according to the RKI. Its previous high had been 197.6 on December 22. The figure fluctuated thereafter and has been falling again for several days.

The RKI counts more than 2.12 million detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic (as of Jan. 23, 00:00). The actual total number is likely to be much higher, as many infections are not detected. The total number of people who died from or with the involvement of a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 51,521. The number of those who recovered was given by the RKI as about 1.79 million.
