The virus variant, first identified in South Africa in November, was detected in 10,443 samples in Germany to date.

That’s 45 percent, 3,218 cases more than a day earlier.

Of those infected, 124 were hospitalized. Four died of the disease caused by the virus (Covid-19), according to the RKI report, which indicated that data provision was incomplete due to the holidays, so local – district, city – health authorities expect a number of cases to be reported retrospectively.

It was added that the detection together includes suspected cases confirmed by a gene sequence test and based on a so-called variant-specific PCR test.
