The Robert Koch Institute for Virology, which monitors the coronavirus situation in Germany, indicated that there were 80,430 confirmed Covid-19 infections in the last 24 hours.

The weekly incidence reaches 407.5 infections per 100,000 inhabitants and 384 people died from causes related to the disease. The last record of infections registered in a day was more than 76,000.

The incidence in a 24-hour period rose to 407.5 COVID-19 infections per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to 387.9 the day before. For comparison, a week ago, the national incidence was 258.6 and a month ago it was 390.9.

The number of Covid-19 patients admitted to the hospital per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days was 3.34 on Tuesday (Monday: 3.37).

In France, 368,149 new infections were reported in the last day, which is the record in a single day since the beginning of the pandemic.

However, this figure, as an example, would be below the real infections per day, after they were the first data after the weekend, when fewer tests are carried out due to low work activity.

As in Germany, in French territory hospitalizations are going down when the last report placed them at 23,000, while last November it reached a peak of 33,500.
