The health authorities in Germany reported 1911 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day.
This is evident from the figures from Saturday morning, which reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5:01 a.m.
For comparison: a week ago the value was 2294 new corona infections.
The RKI gave the seven-day incidence on Saturday morning as 18.3 nationwide.
The day before it was at 18.6, the previous week at 26.3.
According to the information, 129 new deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.
A week ago there were 122 dead.
The RKI has counted 3,713,480 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not detected.
The RKI stated the number of people recovered at 3,573,600.
The number of people who died with or with the involvement of a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 is now given as 89,816.
According to the RKI situation report on Friday evening, the nationwide seven-day R value was 0.83, the day before it was 0.79. This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 83 more people. The R-value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.
More than 175.1 million people around the world have been shown to have contracted the coronavirus. This is the result of a Reuters survey based on official data. After that, more than 3.93 million people have died from the virus since it was first detected in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. After the US, Brazil has the highest number of deaths with more than 482,000. More than 17.2 million cases of infection were detected there. This is the third highest value worldwide after the USA and India.
