Germany reports 852 deaths with coronavirus in 24 hours

The German health authorities today reported 852 fatalities with or from covid-19 in the last 24 hours, after several days in which lower mortality rates were reported due to the holidays.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI), competent in the matter in the country, also reported 12,892 new infections verified in one day, a count that is still considered incomplete since these days fewer tests are carried out than usual.

The maximum number of deaths in 24 hours was registered a week ago, with 962 deaths, and the number of infections in one day was on December 18, with 33,777 infections. The cumulative incidence in seven days per 100,000 inhabitants is 149.2 cases - the maximum was on Tuesday of last week, with 197.6 cases.

The territorial differences are enormous: while in the federal state of Saxony (east) an incidence of 364.7 is recorded, in Mecklenburg-Antepomeria (northeast) it is at 77.2. In the city-state of Berlin, the incidence is 145.1 cases.
