Covid-19: RKI registers 135,402 new infections – the number of deaths is increasing

The health authorities in Germany recently reported to the RKI 135,402 new corona infections (previous week: 132,671) and 108 deaths (previous week: 83) within one day.

Comparisons of the data are also only possible to a limited extent here because of the test behavior, late registrations and transmission problems.

In general, the number of registered new infections and deaths varies significantly from weekday to weekday, as many federal states do not transmit to the RKI, especially on weekends, and report their cases in the course of the week.

The RKI counted 28,808,614 confirmed infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
