Corona case numbers in Germany: experts assume higher values

However, the numbers are of limited value at the moment. Experts assume a high number of cases that are not recorded in the RKI data. Test capacities and health authorities are therefore at the limit in many places, and contacts are only tracked to a limited extent. In addition, the number of people who no longer have their infection confirmed by a PCR test is likely to increase – the infection is therefore not included in the official statistics.

Corona in Germany: 243 deaths related to the corona virus

As the RKI announced, citing data from the health authorities, the number of new infections within 24 hours on Tuesday morning was 159,217 – after 76,465 on Monday and 169,571 on Tuesday last week. As the RKI further announced, 243 other deaths related to the corona virus were also recorded on Tuesday.

According to the RKI, the health authorities have recorded a total of 12,580,343 cases of infection since the beginning of the pandemic. The total number of registered corona deaths in Germany is now 120,220. The RKI puts the number of people who have recovered from corona disease in Germany at around 8,989,100.

In November, the federal and state governments had defined the so-called hospitalization incidence as the decisive benchmark for tightening or relaxing the corona measures. This value indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants are hospitalized within seven days because of a corona infection. According to the latest RKI report, the hospitalization incidence nationwide on Monday was 5.93. (skr/afp)
