Almost 10,000 new infections, seven-day incidence drops to 110.1

Germany – Health offices in Germany have reported 9677 new Corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. In addition, 298 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours. This is according to figures released by the RKI on Wednesday morning. Exactly one week ago, the RKI had recorded 17,051 new infections and 249 new deaths within one day. According to RKI assumptions, there are currently still slightly fewer tests than before the vacations due to vacations and closed practices, if necessary. The RKI assumes that the frequency of testing will only return to a level comparable to previous weeks after the Easter vacations, i.e. after the coming weekend in most federal states.

The data reflect the status of the RKI dashboard as of 5 a.m.; subsequent changes or additions by the RKI are possible. The number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 population was 110.1 nationwide Wednesday morning, according to the RKI. The previous day, the RKI reported this seven-day incidence as 123.0.

The RKI counted 2,910,445 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 those who recovered as about 2,614,500. The total number of people who died from or with the involvement of a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 77,401.

The nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.81 (previous day: 0.90), according to the RKI situation report released Tuesday evening. That means that 100 infected people mathematically infect 81 more people. A drop in the R value could also be related to the Easter holidays, the RKI wrote. “The values can only be assessed in a few days.”
