For the first time since the start of the Corona pandemic, more than 100,000 new Corona infections have been reported to the Robert Koch Institute in Germany within one day. Health offices reported 112,323 cases in 24 hours, according to RKI data from Wednesday morning. On Friday, the number was above the 90,000-case mark for the first time. Exactly one week ago, there had been 80,430 new infections.

Along with Germany and Brazil, Mexico also reported an all-time high in new infections. Nearly 50,000 cases were registered within 24 hours, the Ministry of Health reported.

320 people have also died. This is the highest figure since the end of November. A total of 4.4 million cases and 301,789 deaths related to Covid-19 have been registered.

Not only Germany, but also Brazil has recorded a new record for Corona infections, with 137,103 cases within 24 hours. The previous record dated from June 23, 2021, when 115,228 new infections were registered within 24 hours. The country of 213 million people has recorded 621,517 deaths related to the virus since the pandemic began – the second highest number after the United States.

As in numerous other countries, infections had recently picked up significantly. “The peak should be reached in February and the situation should stabilize again,” said epidemiologist Ethel Maciel of the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (Ufes) university. “But we don’t know yet what the impact of Carnival will be,” which begins at the end of February, she warned.

According to Ethel Maciel, “the pressure on public health services is already very high.” The next two weeks, she said, will show “how the contagions of the Christmas holidays will affect hospitalizations.”

Nearly 70 percent of Brazilians are fully vaccinated, and vaccination of children between the ages of five and 11 began this week, despite criticism from President Jair Bolsonaro. The far-right leader asserted that he would never have his 11-year-old daughter Laura vaccinated. He himself is also not vaccinated.
