Germany registers over 28,000 newly infected with coronavirus


Since the beginning of the current pandemic, 4.53 million people have been infected with coronavirus in Germany, 95,485 of whom have died. In the last 24 hours, the mortal balance has increased by 126, a week ago the RKI registered 67 new deaths.

The number of hospitalized with covid-19 in a seven-day total per 100,000 rose today to 3.31 from Wednesday’s 3.07. This value was highest around last Christmas, at about 15.5. This indicator is currently key to the possible implementation of anti-epidemic measures, however, due to large differences between individual regions, it has not been determined at the national level what value should be considered critical.

The head of the German Hospital Association (DKG) Gerald Gass warned that if the unfavorable development continues, healthcare facilities will be forced to consider limiting the planned care. “We are in a critical phase of the pandemic. If things continue to develop the same, we will have 3,000 patients in intensive care units in two weeks,” Gass told the RND media. German intensive care units experienced the highest occupancy ever in January this year, when they cared for 5,700 patients.

Austria is also experiencing a rapid expansion of the infection, where today, for the second time in a row, the daily balance of new cases exceeded 4,000. These are the highest numbers in the last almost year, with more last infections last November. There are currently 1,289 people with covid-19 in hospitals, of which 265 are in intensive care units. At the same time, Austria has followed the tightening of restrictions on the number of severe cases of covid-19, and further measures will be added when the number of patients in the ICU exceeds three hundred.

The Czech Republic, which has almost two million inhabitants than Austria, today reported 5,824 new cases in the last day. There are 270 infected people per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days. Almost 1,300 people are hospitalized in hospitals.
