5,412 new corona infections and 64 new deaths

Again, fewer people were infected with the corona virus compared to the previous week. However, the seven-day incidence is stagnating.

Berlin (dpa) – The health authorities in Germany reported 5412 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. This is evident from the figures that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 05.03.

For comparison: a week ago the value was 6922 infections. On Monday, the number of cases reported by the RKI is usually lower, among other things because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend.

Due to the public holiday on May 13th, when interpreting the number of cases, it should be noted that fewer people visit a doctor on public holidays and bridging days, which means that fewer samples are taken and fewer laboratory tests are carried out, according to the RKI’s management report. “This means that fewer pathogens are reported to the responsible health authorities.”

According to the RKI, the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants reported within seven days was 83.1 nationwide (previous day: 83.1; previous week: 119.1). According to the information, 64 new deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 54 dead.

The RKI has counted a total of 3,598,846 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, however, since many infections are not recognized. The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at around 3,300,700. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 86,160.

According to the RKI situation report on Sunday, the nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.82 (previous day: 0.84). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 82 more people. The R-value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.
