Experts assume a large number of cases are not recorded in the RKI data. One reason is the limited capacity of health authorities, for example, and contacts are often only traced to a limited extent.
According to the new information, 314 deaths were recorded in Germany in 24 hours. A week ago there were 301 deaths. The RKI has counted 16,242,070 infections detected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections go undetected.
The RKI gave the number of corona-infected patients attending clinics per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days on Monday at 6.06 (Sunday at 6.24). Among them there are many people with a positive corona test who have another main disease. The most recent figures were not initially available.
The RKI gave the number of people recovered on Wednesday at 12,753,700. The number of people who have died or involved a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 124,764.
