The RKI counted 2,782,273 confirmed infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the pandemic began. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not detected. The RKI gave the number of people who recovered as about 2,494,800. The total number of people who died from or with the involvement of a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 75,913.
The nationwide seven-day R-value was 1.17 (previous day 1.19), according to the RKI situation report released Sunday evening. This means that 100 infected people mathematically infect 117 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.
