The RKI announces the current number of corona cases in Germany. More than 130,000 new infections have been reported.
Berlin – The nationwide seven-day incidence has fallen again for the first time after a long period of increase. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Sunday morning as 1708.7. For comparison: On Saturday (03/19/2022) the corona incidence was 1735.0, a week ago it was 1526.8 (previous month: 1346.3). The health authorities in Germany reported 131,792 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This emerges from figures that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5:04 a.m. A week ago there were 146,607 infections.
Experts assume a high number of cases that are not recorded in the RKI data. One reason is the limited capacity of health authorities, for example. Contacts are often only tracked to a limited extent.
