Corona: RKI reports more than 200,000 new infections – incidence exceeds 1000

The RKI records a new high in the number of new corona infections. And the seven-day incidence exceeds the thousand mark for the first time.

Berlin – The nationwide seven-day incidence reported by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) exceeded the 1000 threshold for the first time exactly two years after the first confirmed corona case in Germany. The RKI gave the value of new infections per 100,000 people and week on Thursday morning as 1017.4.

For comparison: the day before the value was 940.6. A week ago, the nationwide incidence was 638.8 (previous month: 222.7). The number of new corona infections also reached a record value and at the same time exceeded the threshold of 200,000: the health authorities in Germany reported 203,136 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This emerges from figures that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:59 a.m.

On January 19, the number had exceeded 100,000 for the first time. A week ago there were 133,536 new infections recorded. Experts assume that there will be a high and increasing number of cases that are not recorded in the RKI data, partly because testing capacities and health authorities are at their limits in many places.

The case numbers of the RKI may differ from those of the individual federal states. One reason for this is the longer transmission paths between the RKI and the responsible health authorities. The RKI’s Covid-19 dashboard can also be adjusted during the day.
