Two days after Austria set a record for new infections, Germany reported an all-time high in 7-day incidence, with the Robert Koch Institute reporting the number of confirmed cases per 100,000 population per week at 201.1 this morning. The previous record was set at the peak of the second CoV wave on December 22, 2020, at 197.6. In Austria, this value is around 600.

It is important to note that, unlike a year ago, many people are now vaccinated; the rate is particularly high among the very elderly, who are particularly at risk. Experts therefore believe that the health system can now withstand more new infections than before the vaccinations, as they provide very good protection against severe courses of the disease. On the previous day, the incidence had been 191.5, a week ago 154.8 (previous month: 63.8)

Health authorities in Germany reported 15,513 new CoV infections to the RKI within one day. This is according to figures reflecting the status of the RKI dashboard as of 04:15. On Friday, the number of new infections had reached 37,120, a record high since the beginning of the pandemic. Exactly one week ago, the figure had been 9,658 infections. In Germany, however, less is tested than in Austria, because it is chargeable.

Germany-wide, 33 deaths were recorded within 24 hours, according to the new data. A week ago, there were 23 deaths. The RKI counted 4,782,546 proven infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the start of the pandemic, but the actual total is likely to be much higher, as many infections go undetected.
