The number of people who died of or with a Sars-CoV-2 infection in one day has reached a new high.
The Robert Koch Institute currently reports 1,244 new deaths.
The number of infections newly registered by the health authorities is 25,164.
The nationwide average of the so-called seven-day incidence fell slightly compared to yesterday; the RKI reports an incidence of 151.
(Status: 14.1.2021, 7.00 a.m.)
In general, the RKI advises that the transmitted and reported number of cases generally cannot fully reflect the course, since it takes different lengths of time until after the onset of the disease “a Covid-19 diagnosis, reporting and transmission of the case to the RKI “come. Here we explain how we handle the numbers.
Test numbers lower over public holidays – high positive rate
Every Wednesday the RKI publishes data on test capacities and tests in Germany in the management report. In calendar week 1, around 13 percent of the tests were positive. Compared to the previous week, in which almost 16 percent of the tests were positive, that was a slight decrease. However, significantly more tests were carried out in the first calendar week of 2021 than immediately before the turn of the year: the RKI registered around 1.2 million tests in the first calendar week; the week before it was around 800,000.
This number also reflects the overall situation around the Christmas holidays and New Year’s Eve, because it was the lowest number of tests since the 45th calendar week.
The RKI also points out that the number of tests cannot be equated with the number of people tested – because a person could well have been tested several times. (Status: 14.1.)
The situation in the federal states
With 3,962.5 infections per 100,000 inhabitants, the highest number of infections in relation to the number of inhabitants has so far been recorded in Saxony during the course of the pandemic. This is followed by Bavaria (2,793), Thuringia (2,561), Hesse (2,457) and North Rhine-Westphalia (2,449.5).
The fewest cases have so far been in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (975.3 per 100,000 inhabitants). (Status: 14.1.)
In absolute numbers, according to the RKI, North Rhine-Westphalia has the most cases with 439,609 confirmed infections. 8,585 people have died in North Rhine-Westphalia in connection with a Sars-CoV-2 infection. So far, 366,609 infections have been confirmed in Bavaria and there have been 8,399 deaths. With 267,714, Baden-Württemberg has the third most laboratory-confirmed infections and 5,874 deaths. According to the RKI, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has the lowest numbers (15,684 infections / 268 deaths). (Status: 14.1.)
Number of Covid-19 patients in intensive care units
In the so-called DIVI intensive care register, clinics report the occupancy of their intensive care units – also with Covid-19 cases. Currently, 24,173 intensive care beds for adult patients are reported in the registry, of which 3,514 are free. It is unclear whether all free beds can be used in an emergency. Doctors and nursing associations have pointed out several times that not enough staff are available for the intensive care units.
The re are currently 5,143 people in intensive care units in Germany who are proven to have Covid-19. Of these, 2,963 require invasive ventilation. (As of January 14th)
The intensive register also shows the occupancy of the stations for the individual cities and districts. Read more about the situation in hospitals here.
According to the RKI’s management report, around 32 percent of the Covid 19 patients treated in intensive care units have died so far. (As of January 14th)
More than 613,000 people vaccinated in Germany
According to the latest information from the RKI, 758,093 people in Germany have already received the first of the two doses of a Covid vaccination. This value rose by 69,178 within 24 hours. (Status: 14.1.)
