The seven-day incidence rises again and is now 220.3. The Robert Koch Institute assumes that many cases will not be recorded between the years.
Berlin – The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported an increase in the nationwide seven-day incidence for the third day in a row. The RKI gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week at 220.3. Because there has been less testing and reporting between the years, the RKI assumes that the data is under-recorded.
For comparison: the previous day the value was 214.9. A week ago the nationwide incidence was 242.9 (previous month: 442.9). The health authorities in Germany reported 26,392 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 3:45 a.m. Exactly one week ago there were 22,214 infections.
According to the new information, 184 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 157 deaths. The RKI has counted 7,176,814 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 recognized.
The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered on Saturday at 6,418,300. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 112,109. dpa
