According to the RKI, the infection situation is stable

The Robert Koch Institute reports a nationwide seven-day incidence of 678.8 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants - hardly more than in the previous week. However, the number may be inaccurate.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the nationwide seven-day incidence on Wednesday morning as 678.8.

The day before, the value was at a similar level with 687.7 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and had only increased slightly compared to the previous week (previous week: 646.3; previous month: 253.8).

However, the incidence does not provide a complete picture of the infection situation.

Scientists have been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI - mainly because by far not all infected people have a PCR test done.

Only positive PCR tests count in the statistics.

In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to a distortion of individual daily values.

The health authorities in Germany recently reported 130,728 new corona infections (previous week: 133,950) and 122 deaths (previous week: 175) to the RKI within one day.

Here, too, comparisons of the data are only possible to a limited extent due to the test behavior, late registrations and transmission problems.

In general, the number of registered new infections and deaths varies significantly from weekday to weekday, since many federal states do not transmit them to the RKI, especially at weekends, and report their cases later in the week.

The RKI has counted 28,673,212 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 go undetected.
