Berlin / Washington (TEH) – At least 116,304 infections with the new Corona Virus have been registered in Germany by evening. This is the result of an evaluation by the German Press Agency, which takes into account the latest figures from the federal states. The time at which a new daily status is reported varies from state to state. In addition, some of the federal states do not always report their numbers at the same time. According to the information, at least 2,459 people infected with the pathogen Sars-CoV-2 have so far died nationwide.
Several Germans died abroad in connection with a Corona infection. According to estimates by the Robert Koch Institute, around 53,913 people survived the infection in Germany, with Bavaria having more than 30,800 cases and at least 721 deaths, North Rhine-Westphalia with more than 24,400 cases and at least 502 deaths, and Baden-Wurttemberg more than 22,200 cases and at least 564 deaths. Based on 100,000 inhabitants, Bavaria has the highest number of infections with a value of 236. The national average was 140.2. However, the number of tests per 100,000 inhabitants varies in the federal states. As for other countries, experts also expect a high number of unreported cases in Germany.
According to US experts, more than 100,000 people worldwide have already died as a result of the Corona pandemic. This comes from data from the American Johns Hopkins University from Friday. The number of cases of infection detected worldwide was, therefore, more than 1.6 million. In absolute terms, most infections have been reported in the United States, followed by Spain and Italy.
