The incidence value continues to climb, this morning it is 362.2. In addition, 63,924 new corona infections and 248 deaths were registered in the last 24 hours.
Berlin – The nationwide seven-day incidence has risen again to a high. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Saturday morning as 362.2. For comparison: the previous day the value was 340.7, a week ago it was 277.4 (previous month: 80.4). The health authorities in Germany reported 63,924 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:02 a.m. Exactly one week ago there were 45,081 infections.
According to the new information, 248 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 228 deaths. The RKI has counted 5,312,215 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not recognized.
The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days – the most important parameter for a possible tightening of the corona restrictions – was given by the RKI on Friday at 5.34 (Thursday: 5.30). With the indicator it must be taken into account that hospital admissions are sometimes reported with delay. The previous high was around 15.5 around Christmas last year.
The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 4,610,300. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 98,987. dpa
