Germany: Covid cases jump 26% in one day, top 50,000 for the first time
The number of new corona infections in Germany has risen sharply – and exceeded 50,000 for the first time in the pandemic. The health authorities in Germany reported the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) the maximum value of within one day 50,196 new corona infections.
The day before there were 39,676 infections and exactly one week ago the value was 33,949 infections. The value on Wednesday was already a high.
The nationwide seven-day incidence also reached a peak again. The RKI gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Thursday morning at 249.1 . It has thus risen to a high for the fourth day in a row. On Wednesday the value was 232.1. For comparison: a week ago the incidence was 154.5 (previous month: 66.5).
