The seven-day incidence has decreased slightly in Germany. However, the number of deaths has risen again on a weekly basis.
Berlin – The seven-day incidence in Germany has fallen slightly. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Tuesday morning as 60.3.
For comparison: the previous day the value was 61.7, a week ago it was 68.5. The health authorities in Germany reported 4171 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:23 a.m. A week ago the value was 4664 infections.
According to the new information, 101 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 81 deaths. The RKI has counted 4,203,571 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 number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Monday at 1.44. A weekly or monthly comparison is not possible due to the high number of late registrations. A nationwide threshold value from when the situation can be viewed critically is not provided for the incidence of hospitalization, among other things because of large regional differences. The previous high was around 15.5 around Christmas time.
The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,978,200. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 93,504. dpa
