The case numbers of the RKI can differ from those of the individual federal states. One reason for this is the longer transmission routes between the RKI and the responsible health authorities. The RKI’s Covid-19 dashboard can also be adjusted during the day.
The number of deaths in Germany in connection with a corona infection rose by 23 cases to 95,100. According to the RKI, the total number of detected infections since the beginning of the pandemic is 4,466,157, the number of those who have recovered is around 4,206,400.
The incidence value, which indicates the number of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days, has been rising continuously for a week and a half. On Friday, the incidence reached 100 for the first time since May.

The incidence value has long been the decisive variable for the corona measures taken by the federal and state governments. Due to the progress made in the vaccination campaign, other values are now playing a bigger role – in particular the number of corona patients in hospitals. (marv / dpa)
