COVID 19 in Germany: Seven-day incidence exceeds previous day’s level for second time in a row

In Germany, the so-called seven-day incidence continues to rise to 60.2, according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). It thus rose for the second time in a row above the value of the previous day, which had been 57.8 on Saturday. The value indicates how many of 100,000 inhabitants are tested mathematically new positive within a week. The federal and state governments are initially aiming for an incidence of 50. Openings, for example, of the retail trade, however, are only envisaged when the value of 35 is reached. According to the RKI, 7676 new cases of people have tested positive for Corona. It also reports 145 additional cases in which people who tested positive died.

This brought the total number of confirmed infections with the coronavirus in Germany since the start of the pandemic to 2,386,559.

In addition, another 145 deaths were counted within 24 hours related to coronavirus infection. The total number of recorded corona deaths in Germany thus increased to 67,841. The RKI put the number of people recovered from a corona infection at around 2.191 million.

At weekends, the figures are usually lower, as not all health offices report their figures to the RKI and also fewer tests are carried out and evaluated.
