Warn experts

When evaluating the infection rate, it should be borne in mind that experts are currently assuming a noticeable underreporting. Health authorities and clinics can no longer keep up with reporting cases, at least in individual regions.

As the RKI further reported, citing data from the health authorities, 51,301 new infections were recorded within 24 hours.

Corona in Germany: nationwide hospitalization incidence at 5.21

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. For more than a week, however, the number has been falling again.

On November 18, the federal and state governments set the so-called hospitalization incidence as the decisive yardstick 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.
