RKI registered 4209 new corona infections

The number of new infections with the coronavirus continues to decline. The incidence is also falling. However, fewer tests were carried out because of the holiday.

Berlin (dpa) – The health authorities in Germany reported 4,209 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. This is evident from the figures from Tuesday morning, which reflect the status of the RKI case numbers page from 8:11 a.m.

For comparison: a week ago the value was 6125 infections, but the data record did not contain the number of cases from Brandenburg. The number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants reported within seven days was given by the RKI on Tuesday morning as 79.5 nationwide (previous day: 83.1; previous week: 115.4).

Due to the last Ascension weekend, when interpreting the number of cases, it should be noted that fewer people visit a doctor on public holidays and bridging days, which means that fewer samples are taken and fewer laboratory tests are carried out, according to the RKI’s management report on Monday. “This means that fewer pathogens are reported to the responsible health authorities.”

According to the information, 221 new deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 283 dead.

The RKI has counted a total of 3,603,055 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, however, since many infections are not recognized. The number of people who died with or with the involvement of a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 is now given as 86,381.

According to the RKI management report on Monday evening, the nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.77 (previous day: 0.82). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 77 more people. The R-value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.
