RKI registered 8092 new corona infections incidence at 51.6

The Robert Koch Institute registered 8092 new corona infections and 17 deaths within one day. The seven-day incidence is 51.6.

Berlin – According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the nationwide seven-day incidence is currently 51.6 – and thus above 50 for the first time since May.

The day before, the number of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants reported within seven days was 48.8, a week ago it was 32.7. The figure, which is important for assessing the infection situation, last reached a value of over 50 on May 25 (58.4), the lowest value of summer was reported at the beginning of July (4.9 on July 3 and 6).

According to the RKI, the fourth wave of the corona pandemic has begun in Germany. Younger people in particular are affected by infections, according to the institute’s weekly report on Thursday. Despite the vaccinations, the corona incidence will remain an important value for assessing the upcoming occupancy of intensive care beds in autumn and winter, experts recently explained. From 200 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week, “a considerable burden on the intensive care units” with more than 3000 intensive care patients at the same time can be expected, provided the vaccination rate is not increased significantly, according to the analysis presented last week.

3,861,147 infections detected since the start of the pandemic

The health authorities in Germany last reported 8092 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers from Saturday morning, which reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:05 a.m. A week ago, the value for Germany was 5644 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 into account to a greater extent.

According to the new information, 17 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 11 deaths. The RKI has counted 3,861,147 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 3,696,300. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 91,973. dpa
