Corona in Germany: RKI reports current case numbers – incidence is falling significantly

The Robert Koch Institute reports the current number of corona cases for Germany on a daily basis. However, on Tuesday the seven-day incidence declines.

Berlin – The Corona crisis is still the top topic in Germany. After a relaxation in summer, there was a significant increase again in autumn, and many experts are now sounding the alarm. But the numbers are currently stagnating, the seven-day incidence even declined on Tuesday (December 7th, 2021). However, it is difficult for the Robert Koch Institute to assess the situation.

Because the slowed increase in the seven-day incidence in the past few days could “on the one hand be a first indication of a slightly weakening dynamic in the transmission process due to the significantly intensified measures to reduce contact,” said the RKI weekly report on Thursday evening (02.12.2021 ) called. However, the development could “regionally also be due to the increasingly overloaded capacities in the public health service and the exhausted laboratory capacities”. Many experts assume a noticeable underreporting.
