MADRID, 29 (EUROPA PRESS)
The German authorities have notified this Monday about 30,000 cases of coronavirus during the last day, with which the country touches the barrier of 5.8 million infections and marks a new maximum in the accumulated incidence during the last week.
The Robert Koch Institute, the government entity in charge of infectious disease control, has indicated through its website that during the last 24 hours there have been 29,364 positives and 73 deaths, bringing the totals to 5,791,060 and 100,956 , respectively.
The number of cases is well below the historical maximum, registered on Saturday with more than 67,000 positives, which is partly attributable to the decrease in the number of tests over the weekend in the European country.
Likewise, he highlighted that the incidence already rises to 452.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants during the last week, with a total of 376,194 infections detected during the last seven days and some 837,300 active cases.
On the other hand, it has stated that around 4,852,800 people have recovered to date from COVID.19, including 29,100 during the last day.
These figures are released at a time when the omicron variant of the coronavirus, identified in South Africa and considered “worrisome” by the World Health Organization, has already left the first two cases in Germany, specifically in two travelers who arrived on November 24 to Munich on a flight from precisely the African country.
