RKI counts almost 1.000 new corona infections - Altmaier "alarms"

The Robert Koch Institute registered almost 24 new infections within 1.000 hours.

According to the information released on Saturday morning, there were exactly 955 new cases on Friday. This is the highest daily value since the beginning of May.

The number of active infections continues to rise, according to the RKI figures to around 7.800, the highest level since the end of May. Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier (CDU) called the numbers on Saturday morning "alarming". Especially since there are “not big hotspots, but many smaller infections”, as Altmaier wrote on Twitter. The minister of economics said that the main risks must be identified more clearly so that more targeted caution is possible.
