Corona case numbers: Incidence noticeably over 700

Created: 07/23/2022, 06:17 am

The Robert Koch Institute publishes the current number of corona cases in Germany. The seven-day incidence remains at a high level.

Berlin/Frankfurt – The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the nationwide seven-day corona incidence on Friday morning as 729.3. This is evident from numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5 a.m. The day before, the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week was 740.3 (previous week: 719.2; previous month: 488.7).

However, the incidence does not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. For some time now, experts have been assuming that there is a high number of cases not recorded by the RKI – mainly because not all infected people have a PCR test done. Only positive PCR tests count in the statistics. In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to the distortion of individual daily values.

The health authorities in Germany recently reported 107,819 new corona infections (previous week: 109,694) and 113 deaths (previous week: 115) to the RKI within one day. Here, too, comparisons of the data are only possible to a limited extent due to the test behavior, late registrations and transmission problems. The RKI has counted 30,239,122 proven infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections go undetected.

Corona pandemic in Germany: It is difficult to picture the current infection situation

The current number of cases and incidences do not provide a clear picture of the current infection situation. Comparisons of the Corona data are only possible to a limited extent due to the test behavior, late registrations or transmission problems. In general, the number of registered new infections and deaths varies significantly from weekday to weekday, since more and more federal states do not transmit to the RKI, especially on weekends and public holidays, and report their cases later in the week.

Current Corona case numbers: Important information about the figures from the RKI

  • When considering the values, it must be taken into account that some countries do not report data on every day of the week. At the weekend, the transmission by health authorities is not legally obligatory. Since there are no direct consequences at state or federal level, fewer and fewer health authorities and federal states are transmitting the data on Saturdays and Sundays. There may also be delays on public holidays.
  • Daily fluctuations should therefore not be overestimated, especially at the weekend and at the beginning of the week. This in turn leads to late registrations on the following days. A comparison of daily values is therefore becoming increasingly difficult. For the assessment of the course, the consideration of the weekly comparison is therefore more expedient.
  • Experts have also been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to overworked health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test done. Only these count in the statistics. In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to a distortion of individual daily values.
  • Therefore, when interpreting the current number of cases, it should be noted that there may be an increased under-recording of cases in the reporting system due to the lower testing, reporting and transmission activity. A detailed assessment of the epidemiological situation takes place every Thursday in the weekly report of the RKI.
