For the first time since the outbreak, German health officials have registered more than 236,000 new daily infections from Kovit-19. The Robert Koch Institute (Rki), a government agency for the control of infectious diseases, has reported 236,120 infections and 164 deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing the total to 10,422,764 and 118,334, respectively.
While authorities confirmed 208,498 infections, the number of cases registered on Wednesday was higher than the previous record. This is the third time in the country that more than 200,000 positives have been confirmed in a single day. Rki points out that the accumulated incidence rate in the last seven days was 1,283.2 cases per 100,000 people and 1,067,031 positive in the last week. The latter indicator crossed one million cases on Tuesday, for the first time since the outbreak began.
According to data from the Robert Koch Institute, there are currently about 2,435,300 active cases, while the number of people rescued from Covid-19 is estimated at about 7,869,200, including about 79,600 cures in the last 24 hours. Therefore, German government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit said on Monday that it was too early to begin easing restrictions.
