The Robert Koch Institute for Infectious Diseases Control in Germany said today (Thursday, January 14, 2021) that health offices in Germany recorded 1244 new deaths due to infection with the virus within 24 hours, in addition to 25 thousand and 164 new cases.

And a state of uncertainty loomed early Thursday morning over the numbers of deaths due to infection with the virus that the Robert Koch Institute records daily in Germany.

And this appeared in that the page known as the “Robert Koch Institute Dashboard” – a page that displays an overview of the numbers of infection cases – presented this morning the arrival of deaths due to infection with the virus that the institute recorded within 24 hours, a total of 1244 deaths. But then for some time some values ​​and numbers disappeared from the site – among them the numbers of these deaths.

The institute stated that the total number of Coronavirus infections since the start of the outbreak in Germany in the spring of last year reached one million and 978 thousand and 590 cases, and the total number of deaths reached 43,881 deaths. The number of people recovering from the virus in Germany reached about one million and 620 thousand and 200 people.

And prevention measures.

The economy shrinks due to Corona

In another context, the Federal Bureau of Statistics announced today, Thursday, that the German economy contracted by 5% in 2020 in light of the Corona crisis, compared to the previous year. The Corona crisis thus had a major impact on the German economy, the largest economic power in Europe, and brought it into one of the worst recessions in the post-World War II period, and created deep gaps in the national budget. It is noteworthy that the gross domestic product in Germany had shrunk by 5.7% in the global economic crisis in 2009
