For the First Time, Germany Exceeds 100,000 COVID-19 Cases Per Day

Written by on January 19, 2022

At 112,323 new cases on Wednesday, the German health minister warned the top had not been reached and that mandatory vaccination should be implemented by May, a new single-day record for coronavirus in Germany.

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious illness, the number of Germans infected with COVID-19 has reached 8,186,850. On Wednesday, the death toll reached 116,081, an increase of 239 over the previous day.

German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach predicted that the wave will peak within a few weeks, citing Germany’s seven-day incidence rate of 584.4 cases per 100,000 persons.

In mid-February, Lauterbach predicted, “I believe we will hit the crest of the wave, and then the number of cases might reduce again,” he told RTL late on Tuesday.

There may be two times as many unreported instances as previously thought, according to Lauterbach.

There should be a rapid introduction of immunization in order to avert a fresh wave of diseases in the fall, he added.
