Berlin / Washington (TEH) – At least 116,304 infections with the new Corona Virus have been registered in Germany by the afternoon. 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 49,900 people have survived the infection in Germany, with Bavaria having more than 30,862 cases and at least 721 deaths, North Rhine-Westphalia with more than 24,499 cases and at least 502 deaths, and Baden-Wurttemberg more than 22,298 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 139.9. 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 data from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, around 95,000 people worldwide have died as a result of the CoronaVirus-related lung disease Covid-19. Around 1.6 million people are now infected with the Virus. So far, 350,000 people have recovered from an infection.
