The total number of detected Corona infections in Germany has exceeded the five million mark. German health offices reported 33,498 new Corona infections to the RKI within one day, meaning that 5,021,469 infections have now been recorded since the start of the pandemic. That’s according to figures reflecting the RKI dashboard as of 04:02 a.m. Sunday. The actual total is likely to be far higher, as many infections are not detected.
The 33,498 new infections are nearly 10,000 cases more than a week ago Sunday, when 23,543 new infections were reported. The RKI gave the nationwide seven-day incidence as 289.0, which is again a high. By comparison, the previous day the number of new infections reported per 100,000 population per week was 277.4, and a week ago it was 191.5 (previous month: 67.0). Across Germany, 55 deaths were recorded within 24 hours, according to the new data. A week ago, there had been 37 deaths.
The most important parameter for a possible tightening of Corona restrictions, the number of Corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days, was given by the RKI on Friday as 4.70 (Thursday: 4.65). The value is not published over the weekend. The indicator must take into account that hospital admissions are sometimes reported with a delay. A nationwide threshold value, from when the situation is critical, is not provided for the hospitalization incidence, among other things because of large regional differences. The previous maximum value was around 15.5 around Christmas time.
The RKI gave the number of people who recovered as 4,477,900. The number of people who died from or with the involvement of a confirmed infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 97,672.
