The number of reported Corona infections continues to decline in Germany: with 1204 new cases within 24 hours, the Robert Koch Institute again registered fewer infections compared to the previous week. The downward trend is also reflected in the seven-day incidence.
Health offices in Germany have reported 1204 new Corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. This is according to figures released this morning, which reflect the status of the RKI dashboard as of 05:02. A week ago, the figure had been 1785 infections. The RKI gave the seven-day incidence in the morning with 22.9 nationwide. The previous day, the value was 24.3 and the previous week 35.2.
Nationwide, 140 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours, according to the data. A week ago, there had been 153 deaths. The RKI counted 3,702,688 confirmed infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the start of the pandemic, but the actual total is likely to be much higher, as many infections are not detected. The RKI gave the number of those who recovered as 3,549,900. The number of people who died from or involved a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 is now reported as 89,384.
The nationwide seven-day R value was 0.76 (previous day: 0.81), according to Monday’s RKI situation report. This means that 100 infected people mathematically infect 76 more people. The R-value represents the infection incidence 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.
