Seven-day incidence drops further to 125.7

After the recent increase in the number of infections in Germany, the infection situation now seems to be easing for the time being. This picture results from the current data of the RKI.

Berlin (dpa) – Slowly but steadily, the number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants is falling. On Friday morning, the seven-day incidence nationwide was 125.7, according to the RKI. The day before it was 129.1 (previous week: 153.4).

The health authorities in Germany reported 18,485 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. For comparison: on Friday a week ago the value was 24,329. According to the RKI, 284 new deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. Exactly a week ago there were 306 dead.

The RKI has counted 3,491,988 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany 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 around 3,128,800. The total number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 84,410.

According to the RKI situation report on Thursday evening, the nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.88 (previous day: 0.83). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 88 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.
