Infection events are waning
The RKI has counted 3,433,516 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not recognized. The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,061,500. The total number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 83,591.
According to the RKI management report from Monday evening, the nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.88 (previous day: 0.92). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 88 more people. The R-value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.
