RKI reports 203,136 new infections – incidence rises to 1017.4
The Robert Koch Institute reports a new high with 203,136 positive tests within 24 hours. That is 69,600 more cases than on Thursday a week ago, when 133,536 new infections were reported. The nationwide seven-day incidence rose to 1017.4 from 940.6 the previous day. 188 people died in connection with the virus. This increases the number of reported deaths to 117,314. A total of more than 9.23 million corona infections have been registered in Germany so far.
England lifts most restrictions
England lifted most of the corona restrictions during the night. The mask requirement indoors no longer applies, and the health pass no longer has to be shown in clubs and at certain major events. The government’s recommendation to work from home also no longer applies. Despite the still high level of infection numbers, many English people welcome the decision of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is under pressure.
