Corona case numbers: RKI again reports maximum incidence

The RKI publishes the current number of corona cases in Germany every day. On Monday, the nationwide incidence rises to 840.3.

Frankfurt – The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has reported a significant increase in the nationwide seven-day incidence and thus a new record. The RKI gave the value of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Monday morning (01/24/2022) as 840.3. For comparison: On Sunday the corona value was 806.8. A week ago, the nationwide incidence was 528.2 (previous month: 222.7).

The health authorities in Germany reported 63,393 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5 a.m. A week ago there were 34,145 infections.

Experts expect more and more cases that cannot be recorded, partly because test capacities and health authorities are increasingly at their limit. Because of the current number of cases, new corona rules could be decided at the federal-state summit. A possible vaccination requirement is also a topic again and again.

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

The RKI has counted 8,744,840 detected 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. The RKI gave the number of recovered people on Monday as 7,273,100.

The RKI gave the number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days as 3.77 on Friday (Thursday: 3.56). The value is not reported on weekends. (jey/dpa)
