Germany has recorded a new level in its seven-day incidence of infections, marking for the first time over 500 new cases, according to the country's disease control body.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported today 515.7 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week, compared to 497.1 cases the day before and 362.7 a week earlier.

German health authorities have registered 52,504 infections in the last 24 hours. One week ago 36,552 were registered.

Across Germany, 47 coronavirus deaths were reported the day before, up from 77 a week earlier.

RKI reported 7,965,977 coronavirus infections in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic. The true number of cases is likely to have been much higher as many infections go undetected.211Media
