The RKI announces the current number of corona cases in Germany. More than 260,000 new infections have been reported. The incidence continues to rise.
Berlin – The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has again reported a peak value for the nationwide seven-day incidence. The RKI gave the value of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Saturday morning as 1735.0. For comparison: the previous day the value was 1706.3, a week ago it was 1496.0 (previous month: 1350.4).
The health authorities in Germany reported 260,239 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. On Friday (03/18/2022) 297,845 new corona infections were reported. A week ago there were 237,086 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.
