The current Corona case numbers for Monday, January 31, 2022 can be found here.
Frankfurt am Main – The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) also published the current number of cases in the Corona crisis this Sunday (01/30/2022). According to the RKI, 118,970 other people have been infected with the Sars-CoV-2 pathogen within the last 24 hours.
That is less than the 189,166 new corona infections reported on Saturday, but significantly more than the number of new infections last Sunday. On January 23, 2022, the RKI had reported 85,440 new infections. The number of cases is often lower on Sundays in particular, since not all health authorities transmit their data to the RKI on Sunday morning. Overall, the corona virus was diagnosed in Germany in 9.73 million people. The actual number of infected people is likely to be much higher.
Corona case numbers: Health authorities with problems in transmitting the case numbers to the RKI
In addition to the many undetected infections, there are problems with data transmission to the RKI in many places. According to the ARD Tagesschau, there are various reasons for this. For one, the counties and cities would report problems with the technical implementation. On the other hand, the health authorities are often overloaded. The data would therefore sometimes only reach the RKI with a delay.
According to the institute, however, it is still able to give a “reliable assessment of the overall development” and points out that the infection process is only one parameter to be able to assess the pandemic situation. Above all, the “development of the number and severity of the disease” must also be taken into account.

The case numbers of the RKI may differ from those of the individual federal states. One reason for this is the longer transmission paths between the RKI and the responsible health authorities. The RKI’s Covid-19 dashboard can also be adjusted during the day.
