It’s not much, but it is still a trend reversal: Compared to the previous day, the incidence value has increased by 0.1 to 5.0. Previously, the value had been steadily lower for weeks.
Berlin – For the first time in weeks, the seven-day incidence of new corona infections has increased compared to the previous day. It was 5.0 infections within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants and thus 0.1 higher than the day before (4.9; previous week: 5.7).
This is what the numbers from this morning’s Robert Koch Institute (RKI) show, which reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5:23 a.m. Accordingly, the health authorities in Germany reported 559 new corona infections to the institute within one day. A week ago the value was 538 infections.
The highest seven-day incidence during the third corona wave was on April 26, 2021 with a value of 169.3. After that, apart from a few outliers, it had fallen fairly steadily. Most recently, the incidence rose temporarily on June 1 and 2. Due to the spread of the particularly contagious Delta variant in Germany, it was already expected that the decline in new infections in this form would not continue.
According to the new RKI information, seven corona deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were eight dead. The RKI has counted 3,730,912 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 3,628,400. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 91,030. dpa
