Corona case numbers: RKI reports falling incidence for Germany

The RKI publishes the corona case numbers for Germany every day. On Friday the incidence is 413.7.

Frankfurt – The nationwide seven-day incidence has decreased slightly compared to the previous day. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Friday morning (December 10th, 2021) as 413.7.

For comparison: on Thursday (December 9th, 2021) the corona value was 422.3. A week ago the nationwide incidence was 442.1 (previous month: 232.1). The health authorities in Germany reported 61,288 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5:02 a.m.

Exactly one week ago there were 74,352 infections. The RKI has counted 6,423,520 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 are not recognized.

Corona case numbers for Germany: RKI reports 484 deaths in 24 hours

According to the new information, 484 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 390 deaths. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 104,996. The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered on Friday at 5,329,300.

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.

The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Thursday as 5.75 (Wednesday 5.79). A new drug against corona is supposed to reduce the risk of death rapidly: It has now been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). (Jey / dpa)
