Germany Registers 944 COVID-19 Deaths in One Day

GERMANY registers 944 COVID-19 deaths in one day, after data published on Tuesday, January 5 shows that the country has recorded the fourth-worst daily death toll of the pandemic.

The Robert Koch Institute, the German government body in charge of infectious disease control, has however warned that the data is not easy to interpret, as there may be cases that have been reported late after the end of the year holidays.

In addition, the country has confirmed 11,897 new cases with 24 hours, which means that 1,787,410 people in Germany have been infected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the crisis.

According to RKI figures, there are currently around 327,300 active corona cases in Germany.

It is estimated that around 1,424,700 people have survived the infection. That is 23,500 more than the day before.

The latest figures come after the country looks likely to extend its nationwide lockdown beyond January 10 as German politicians call for a further 3-weeks.

This decision of whether to lock down the country again is likely to be decided today (January 5).
