According to figures published by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) Germany has crossed the 3 Million mark in covid-19 infections.
German publishers The Local reported that, ‘the total number of infections now stands at 3,011,513. However, the actual number of cases is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not detected.’
German authorities have logged in 78,452 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.
On Monday morning, the RKI reported 13,245 new COVID-19 infections within a day in Germany. In the same time period, 99 people were reported to have died with or from Covid-19.
