These data represent a drop in new infections compared to last Monday, when 6,729 new cases were registered.

The weekly incidence found was 91 infections per 100,000 inhabitants.

The numbers for Mondays are usually lower than for the rest of the week due to the fact that fewer tests are carried out on the weekend and because some health centres are slow to transmit their data.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Germany has recorded 2,221,971 cases of infection and 57,120 people have died from covid-19.
