The seven-day incidence in Germany is higher than it has been in more than two weeks.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Monday morning at 66.5.

For comparison: the previous day the value was 66.1, a week ago it was 64.7 (previous month: 82.8).

The health authorities in Germany reported 3111 new corona infections to the RKI within one day.

This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:21 am.

A week ago the value was 3088 infections.

According to the new information, seven deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.

A week ago there were seven deaths.

The RKI has counted 4,313,384 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 - the most important parameter for a possible tightening of the corona restrictions - the RKI last stated on Friday at 1.67.

The comparative value of the previous week was about the same.

A nationwide threshold value 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 4,095,900.

The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 94,209.

Quick test for a fee from today

As of Monday, corona rapid tests must also be paid for by yourself.

They are generally free for people who cannot be vaccinated, including children under the age of twelve.

This is set out in a new federal ordinance that is now coming into force.

Since free vaccinations are possible for everyone, taxpayers no longer have to pay the test costs on a permanent basis.

The regulation also lays down some transitional rules.

Children from twelve to 17 years of age and pregnant women can take at least one free test per week until December 31st.

The reason is that a general vaccination recommendation from the Standing Vaccination Commission has only been available for a relatively short period of time - therefore, there should be longer time for a vaccination.
