Germany reported on Tuesday that 2,089 new cases of Covid-19 were registered in the country in the last 24 hours, once again exceeding the 2,000 barrier and consolidating the upward trend of the past few days.
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Germany’s main epidemiological center, recorded 2,507 cases last Saturday – the highest number since April 18 -, 2,153 on Friday and 2,143 on Thursday.
Yesterday and Sunday, 1,192 and 1,410 new cases were registered, respectively, but at the end of the week, not all regional offices communicate their data.
To date, Germany has 287,421 cases of Covid-19 – out of a total population of 83.2 million people – of which about 254.2 thousand have already recovered from the disease. The death toll rose to 9,471, after confirming 11 more victims in the past 24 hours.
According to RKI, the majority of infections detected in Germany are now local, compared to the significant percentage of imports registered during the holiday period.
Germany reached its peak of new daily cases in late March and early April, when more than 6,000 daily infections. Subsequently, the number was significantly reduced, and in June and July they stabilized below 1,000. Since August, the number has been increasing steadily.
