Hardly any movement in incidence: RKI reports 86 corona deaths

The Robert Koch Institute registered similar numbers to the previous week for both the seven-day incidence and corona infections. 10,429 new cases were added, 86 people died from or with the virus.

There is currently little momentum in the seven-day incidence in Germany. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Friday morning at 63.8. For comparison: the previous day the value was 62.6, a week ago it was 64.3 (previous month: 82.7). The health authorities in Germany reported 10,429 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the figures that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:01 a.m. A week ago the value was 10,118 infections.

According to the new information, 86 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 73 deaths. The RKI has counted 4,293,807 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 detected.

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 Thursday at 1.61. That corresponds roughly to the value of the previous week. A nationwide threshold value from when the situation can be viewed critically is not provided for the incidence of hospitalization, among other things because of large regional differences. The previous high was around 15.5 around Christmas time.

The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 4,074,300. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 94,113.

Note: The RKI figures usually differ slightly from the case data that ntv.de reports daily in the evening. The ntv.de data team has direct access to the registration figures from the federal states as published by the local ministries and authorities. The RKI, on the other hand, is bound to the legally prescribed reporting channels, which can lead to a delay.

In addition, the respective daily values ​​map different recording periods: the ntv evaluation collects the country information published by the evening and uses this to calculate a daily status of the reported number of cases, which is usually published from 8 p.m. onwards. The RKI’s recording system, on the other hand, takes into account incoming reports up to midnight, with the current data status being announced the following morning.
