The seven-day incidence climbs to 12.2. 42 deaths are recorded across Germany within 24 hours.
Berlin – The seven-day incidence has been rising continuously for over two weeks. According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Thursday morning, it was 12.2 – the previous day the value was 11.4 and the most recent low on July 6th was 4.9.
According to this, the health authorities in Germany last reported 1890 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers from Thursday morning, which reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:11 a.m.
Presumably 19 new infections from Brandenburg are missing. As the day before, these could not be recorded by the RKI for technical reasons, as announced by the State Ministry of Health. A week ago, the value for Germany was 1642 infections.
The incidence has so far been the basis for many corona restrictions in the pandemic, for example as part of the federal emergency brake that expired at the end of June. In the future, other values such as hospital admissions are to be taken more into account.
According to the new information, 42 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 32 dead. The RKI has counted 3,750,503 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not detected.
The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,642,600. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 91,458. dpa
