The RKI reports falling numbers of corona cases for Germany, but the number of new infections is alarming. A warning was given against this development because of the spread of the Omikron variant.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the health authorities have reported a total of 6,833,050 cases. The institute put the number of people recovered from illness caused by the coronavirus in Germany at around 5,866,900. The total number of corona deaths in Germany rose by 462 to 108,814.

The data

The case numbers of the RKI can differ from those of the individual federal states. One reason for this is the longer transmission routes between the RKI and the responsible health authorities. The RKI’s Covid-19 dashboard can also be adjusted during the day.

The seven-day incidence indicates the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week. The value rose rapidly from the beginning of November. As a result, new highs were recorded every day. The number then fell again at the beginning of December.

On November 18, the federal and state governments set the so-called hospitalization incidence as the decisive benchmark for tightening the corona measures. This value indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants are in hospital within seven days because of a corona infection.

From a value of three, the 2G rule applies across the board for events in a federal state – that is, only those vaccinated against the coronavirus and those recovered from Covid-19 are allowed. According to the RKI, the nationwide hospitalization incidence on Monday was 4.73. (skr / afp)
