New Corona infections and seven-day incidence in Germany decline slightly, but levels remain high. One day after the Corona opening decisions by the federal and state governments, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported 235,626 new cases within 24 hours on Thursday. That’s 12,236 fewer cases than a week ago Thursday when 247,862 new infections were reported.
The national seven-day incidence rate dropped to 1385.1 from 1401.0 the previous day. It indicates how many people are infected per 100,000 population in a week. Two hundred sixty-one more people died in connection with the virus. This brings the total number of reported deaths to 120,728. The pandemic wave is weakening, particularly in the north: Hamburg and Bremen, for example, now report an incidence of less than 1000 again.
According to the RKI, the hospitalization incidence on Wednesday was 6.04. The value indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants were hospitalized with a Corona infection in a week. A total of 2425 Corona patients were in intensive care units on Wednesday.
