The health authorities in Germany report new corona infections to the RKI 1108 within a day.
At 9.3, the seven-day incidence fell back into the single digits for the first time since September 13, 2020.
Berlin (dpa) - The health authorities in Germany reported 1,108 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. For comparison: a week ago the value was 1911 infections. According to the information, 99 new deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 129 dead. The total number of people who died with or with the involvement of a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 is now given as 90,369.
The RKI gave the seven-day incidence nationwide as 9.3 - it has therefore fallen back into the single-digit range for the first time since September 13, 2020 (previous day: 10.3; previous week: 18.3).
The institute has counted 3,721,139 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 RKI stated the number of people recovered as 3,601,200.
The nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.70 (previous day: 0.72) according to the RKI situation report from Friday evening.
This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 70 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.
