Berlin / Frankfurt – The positive trend of the past few days continues. The seven-day incidence in Germany fell again slightly – for the fourth day in a row now. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) stated the value of new infections with the coronavirus per 100,000 people and week on Friday morning as 74.7. The incidence is a key indicator of the rate at which the coronavirus is spreading.
For comparison: the previous day the value was 76.3, a week ago it was 83.8. The health authorities in Germany reported 11,022 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 04.25 a.m. A week ago the value was 12,969 infections.

Corona in Germany: Hospitalization incidence remains stable
The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Thursday at 1.87 (Wednesday: 1.88). A weekly or monthly comparison is not possible due to the high number of late registrations.
The number of corona-related hospital admissions per 100,000 people within seven days was given by the RKI on Thursday at 1.87. The so-called hospitalization incidence has been the most important parameter for the measures in the fight against the corona pandemic since a recently adopted revision of the Infection Protection Act.
However, in view of the large regional differences, there is no nationwide uniform threshold value for assessing the incidence of infection; rather, it is determined by the state governments themselves, with a view to the local conditions. The highest value for the hospitalization incidence was recorded around Christmas at around 15.5.
Corona in Germany: Almost 93,000 people have died so far
