As of: 12/28/2021 8:06 a.m.
The nationwide seven-day incidence has fallen again and is now 215.6. The number of new infections also fell – to 21,080. According to the Robert Koch Institute, the figures are less meaningful because of the holidays.
The health authorities in Germany reported 21,080 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. A week ago there were 23,428 infections. However, the RKI points out that fewer people can be tested during the holidays and at the turn of the year and that less reporting activity can be expected. As a result, the official figures may present an incomplete picture of the situation.
The nationwide seven-day incidence decreased according to the information to 215.6 compared to 222.7 the previous day. A month ago the value was 452.2. It indicates the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants. The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Monday as 3.26 (Sunday 3.31).
372 more deaths
In Germany, 372 more deaths were recorded within 24 hours, compared to 462 a week ago. The number of people who died of or involving a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 110,805.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the RKI counted 7,026,369 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2. The actual number is likely to be significantly higher, however, since many infections are not recognized.
Stricter rules came into force
In the fight against the further spread of the corona virus, tougher measures are taking effect in other federal states as of today. Stricter contact restrictions now also apply in Bavaria, Berlin, Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland, Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein and Thuringia.
