Berlin, Jan 25- The German health authorities today reported 6,729 new infections with coronavirus in the last 24 hours, while the fatalities totaled 217, according to data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) of virology updated last midnight.

As a general rule, at the beginning of the week the figures are lower, among other reasons because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend.
On Monday of last week, new infections totaled 7,141 and deaths, 214, the lowest figures in weeks.
The maximum number of infections was registered on December 18 with 33,777 new infections, and that of deaths, on January 14, with 1,244 in 24 hours.
The number of positives since the first contagion was announced in the country at the end of January last year totals 2,141,665 and that of fatalities, 52,087.
Around 1,823,500 people are recorded as healed and the number of active cases stands at about 266,100, estimates the RKI.
In Germany as a whole, the cumulative incidence in the last seven days stood at 111.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to 134.4 last week, and new infections totaled 92,457.
The peak of incidence at the federal level had been registered on December 22 with 197.6 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in a week.
The number of patients with covid-19 in intensive care units on Sunday amounted to 4,628 -32 less in one day-, of which 2,623 -57% and 9 more compared to Saturday-, need assisted respiration, according to data from the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (DIVI).
In one day, 319 new admissions of patients with covid-19 were registered in the ICU and 351 left intensive care, of which 39% correspond to deaths, the RKI states.
The reproduction factor (R) that takes into account infections in a seven-day interval is 1.01 in Germany as a whole, which means that every 100 infected infects an average of 101 other people.
Since December 26, the number of people who have already received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in Germany has risen to 1,469,353, which corresponds to a 1.8% share, while 163,424 people have already have been vaccinated for the second time.
