For the first time since the end of January: Corona incidence in Germany falls below 1000

The seven-day incidence in Germany has fallen to 876.5. However, not all corona data is reported in full on weekends and public holidays. All news in the ticker.

  • Corona * in Germany : Incidence falls below 1000.
  • Corona numbers : over 37,000 new infections, 29 deaths.
  • This news ticker is updated regularly.

Munich – For the first time since the end of January, the nationwide seven-day incidence* is below 1000. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI*) gave the value on Saturday morning as 876.5. For comparison, it was 1001.5 the day before, 1141.8 a week ago and 1607.1 a month ago.

Corona in Germany: over 37,000 new infections

The health authorities in Germany reported 37,568 new infections to the RKI within one day. This comes from numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5 a.m. on Saturday. A week ago there were 150,675 registered infections.

With the values, however, it must be taken into account that individual states do not report data every weekday, and at weekends, for example, Baden-Württemberg, Lower Saxony, Brandenburg and Saxony do not or not completely. Fewer reports are also to be expected on public holidays. This in turn leads to late registrations on the following days.

A comparison of daily values is therefore becoming increasingly difficult. In addition, experts have been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to overworked health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test done. Only these count in the statistics.

Corona: 29 deaths in Germany – clinic value falls

According to the new information, 29 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 309 deaths – but unlike this week, that Friday was not a holiday. Since the beginning of the corona pandemic, the RKI has counted 23,376,879 proven infections with Sars-CoV-2. However, 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 6.41 on Thursday (Wednesday: 6.49). Here, too, there are days with incomplete reports. The value also includes many people with a positive corona test who have another main illness.

The RKI gave the number of recovered people on Saturday as 19,802,700. The number of people who died from or involved a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 132,929. (kam) *Merkur.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
