Health offices in Germany have reported 14,909 new Corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. This is according to figures from Wednesday morning, which reflect the status of the RKI dashboard as of 5.13 am. By comparison, the figure a week ago had been 18,034 new infections.

According to the RKI, the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants reported within seven days was 107.8 nationwide on Wednesday morning (previous day: 115.4; previous week: 132.8).

Across Germany, 268 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours, according to the data. A week ago, there had been 285 deaths.

The RKI counted a total of 3,548,285 confirmed infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic, but the actual total number is likely to be significantly higher because many infections are not detected. The RKI gave the number of those who recovered as about 3,220,300. The number of people who died from or with the involvement of a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 85,380.

The nationwide seven-day R value was 0.83 (previous day: 0.88), according to the RKI situation report released Tuesday evening. This means that 100 infected people mathematically infect 83 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.
