The seven-day incidence in Germany has fallen again. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Saturday morning as 60.6. The number has therefore been falling for around two weeks. The previous day the value was 62.5, a week ago it was 72.0. The health authorities in Germany reported 7211 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This can be seen from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:08 a.m. A week ago the value was 8901 infections.
According to the new information, 62 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.
A week ago there were 63 deaths.
The RKI has counted 4,188,604 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 number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Friday at 1.58.
A weekly or monthly comparison is not possible due to the high number of late registrations.
A nationwide threshold, from when the situation can be viewed critically, is not provided for the incidence of hospitalization, among other things because of large regional differences.
The previous high was around 15.5 around Christmas time.
The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at around 3,952,000.
The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 93,365.
