The Robert Koch Institute announced on Thursday that the health authorities had reported 4058 new corona infections within the past 24 hours. That is over 1200 more than on Wednesday, when 2828 new infections were reported, a new high since April.

Such a high value was last measured in the first week of April. According to the RKI, at least 310,144 people in Germany have been infected with the corona virus since the start of the corona crisis. According to the RKI, the number of deaths in connection with a corona infection is 9578. That is 16 more than the day before. Around 269,600 people survived the infection according to RKI estimates.

In response to the increasing number of cases, the majority of the federal states decided on Wednesday that holidaymakers within Germany from risk areas may only be accommodated if they can show a negative corona test that is no more than 48 hours old. This should take effect for travelers from areas with more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days.

However, five countries made different statements on the decision. Thuringia made it clear that it does not want to endorse a ban on accommodation, at least Berlin does not want to get on board immediately. Lower Saxony and Bremen want to check. Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. wants to stick to even stricter quarantine rules.
