The RKI has recorded 18,034 new infections and 285 deaths within 24 hours related to coronavirus. Plus: primary care physicians want legal certainty for seventh-dose Biontech use.

Health offices in Germany have reported 18,034 new Corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. This is according to RKI figures from Wednesday morning, which reflect the status of the RKI dashboard as of 05:15. By comparison, the figure a week ago Wednesday had been 22,231. According to the RKI, the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants reported within seven days was 132.8 nationwide on Wednesday morning (previous day: 141.4; previous week: 160.6)

Across Germany, 285 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours, according to RKI data. Exactly one week ago, there were 312 deaths.

The RKI counted 3,451,550 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 3,084,700. The total number of people who died from or with involvement of a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 83,876.

The nationwide seven-day R value was 0.82 (previous day: 0.88), according to the RKI situation report released Tuesday evening. This means that 100 infected people mathematically infect 82 more people. The R-value represents in each case the infection occurrence 8 to 16 days ago. If the R-value 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.
