RKI: 10,315 new corona cases in Germany

7.35 a.m

.: The German health authorities reported 10,315 new corona infections within one day on Sunday.

In addition, 312 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours, as the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) announced in the morning.

Interpretation of the data is currently difficult, however, because fewer people are likely to be tested during the Christmas holidays and around the turn of the year, and not all offices may transmit their data.

According to the RKI, this may result in late registrations.

The number of new infections reported to the health authorities within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (seven-day incidence) was 139.6 on Sunday morning.

Its previous high was reached on December 22nd at 197.6.

The differences between the federal states are enormous: Saxony had the highest incidences on Saturday with 329.7 and Thuringia with 248.9.

Schleswig-Holstein had the lowest value with 77.4.

The RKI has counted 1,765,666 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic (as of January 3, 00:00 a.m.).

The total number of people who died with a proven Sars-CoV-2 infection rose to 34,272.

The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at around 1,381,900.

According to the RKI report on Saturday, the nationwide seven-day R value was 0.95.

This R value means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 95 more people.

The value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago.

If it is below 1 for a long time, the infection process subsides.

In its report, however, the RKI emphasizes that at the turn of the year corona cases are only discovered, recorded and transmitted with a delay, so the R value may be underestimated.
