The RKI counted 2,690,523 confirmed infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not detected. The RKI gave the number of those who recovered as about 2,445,300. The total number of people who died from or with the involvement of a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 75,212.
The nationwide seven-day R-value was 1.04 (previous day 1.12), according to the RKI situation report released Tuesday evening. This means that 100 infected people mathematically infect 104 more people. The value represents in each case the infection occurrence 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the number of infections is decreasing; if it is continuously above 1, the number of cases is increasing.
