Corona in Germany: Incidence at the highest level – RKI reports 260,239 new infections

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.

Corona case numbers in Germany: RKI reports 221 deaths

According to the new information, 221 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 249 deaths. The RKI has counted 18,548 225 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 number of corona-infected patients who came to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was 7.81 according to the RKI on Friday (Thursday: 7.58). Among them are many people with a positive corona test who have another main illness.

The RKI gave the number of recovered people on Saturday as 14,448,200. The number of people who died from or involved a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 126,867. (sne / dpa)
