BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – With the rapid spread of the Omikron variant, the number of corona cases is shooting at a record high. According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the number of new infections transmitted within one day exceeded the threshold of 80,000 for the first time on Wednesday morning. The health authorities reported 80,430 cases to the RKI in 24 hours. Exactly one week ago there were 58,912 new infections recorded, with gaps in tests and reports over the course of the holidays.

The new Corona variant is considered to be much more contagious than Delta. Experts assume that with a complete basic immunization one is less protected against infection with Omikron than with earlier variants, but the protection against severe courses should still be good. A booster vaccination is recommended. At the same time, experts assume that Omikron causes milder disease courses on average.

The RKI gave the 7-day incidence as 407.5. For comparison: the previous day the value was 387.9. A week ago the nationwide incidence was 258.6 (previous month: 390.9). The high was reached at the end of November at 452.4.
