Corona: Incidence increases to 1400.8



DThe nationwide seven-day incidence of the coronavirus reported by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has exceeded the threshold of 1400 for the first time. The RKI gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on this Sunday morning as 1400.8. For comparison: the previous day the value was 1388.0, a week ago 1156.8, a month ago 285.9.

The health authorities in Germany reported 133,173 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. A week ago there were 118,970 infections. Experts assume that there will be a high and increasing number of cases that are not recorded in the RKI data, partly because testing capacities and health authorities are at their limits in many places.

According to the new information, 41 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 59 deaths. The number of people who died from or involved a proven infection with the Sars-CoV-2 virus rose to 118,717.

The RKI has counted 11,022,590 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 go undetected. The RKI gave the number of recovered people as 8,058,100.

The number of corona-infected patients who came to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Friday at 5.45 (Thursday: 5.00). These may also include people with a positive corona test who have another main illness.
