Health offices in Germany have reported 8354 new Corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. In addition, 551 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours, according to figures released by the RKI on Saturday. The data reflect the status of the RKI dashboard as of 05:30, subsequent changes or additions are possible.
On Saturday last week, the RKI had recorded 10,485 new infections and 689 new deaths within one day. The peak of 1244 newly reported deaths had been reached on January 14. The highest number of new infections registered within 24 hours, 33,777, was reached on December 18, but included 3,500 subsequent reports.
According to the RKI, the number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (seven-day incidence) was 60.1 nationwide on Saturday morning. Four weeks ago, on January 16, the incidence had still been 139. Its previous high had been 197.6 on Dec. 22. According to the RKI, most German states continue to report declining seven-day incidences.
The RKI counted 2,328,447 confirmed infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the pandemic began (as of Feb. 13, 00:00). The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not detected. The RKI gave the number of those recovered as about 2,112,000. The total number of people who died from or with the involvement of a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 64,742.
