4369 new infections and 62 new deaths

Health offices in Germany have reported 4369 new Corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within 24 hours. In addition, 62 additional deaths were recorded within one day. This is according to figures released by the RKI on Monday. Exactly a week ago, the RKI had recorded 4426 new infections and 116 new deaths within 24 hours.

On Monday, the case numbers reported by the RKI are usually lower, partly because there is less testing on the weekend. The data reflect the status of the RKI dashboard as of 3:10 a.m.; subsequent changes or additions are possible.

According to the RKI, the number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (seven-day incidence) was 61.0 nationwide in the morning – higher than the previous day (60.2). Four weeks ago, on January 25, the incidence had been 111.2. Its previous high had been 197.6 on Dec. 22.

The peak of 1244 newly reported deaths had been reached on January 14. In terms of new infections registered within 24 hours, the highest figure of 33,777 had been reached on December 18 – but it included 3500 subsequent reports.

The RKI counted 2,390,928 confirmed infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic (as of 3:10 a.m.). 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 2,198,000. The total number of people who died from or with the involvement of a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 67,903.

The nationwide seven-day R-value was 1.10 (previous day 1.07), according to the RKI situation report released Sunday afternoon. That means that 100 infected persons infect arithmetically 110 further humans. The value represents in each case the infection occurrence 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the incidence of infection subsides.
