LGermany recorded for the first time more than 80,000 cases of coronavirus infection in one day, according to figures released on Wednesday by the Robert Koch health watch institute (RKI). The Institute thus reported 80,430 new infections due to the coronavirus in the past 24 hours, an increase of more than 21,500 compared to the previous week.

The incidence over the past seven days has also increased nationally although data is still considered incomplete after the Christmas and New Years holidays when fewer tests were done and therefore fewer cases were reported.

As of Wednesday, 407.5 cases had been recorded per 100,000 inhabitants over a period of one week, against 387.9 the day before. A week ago, the nationwide incidence was 258.6, continues the RKI.

The number of daily deaths stood at 384 against 346 a week earlier. So far, 114,735 people have died in Germany after contracting the coronavirus.
