The incidence has leveled off: RKI reports 65 new corona deaths

At the seven-day incidence, there has been little movement for days – it has leveled off between 63 and 65. The RKI reports 8854 new infections within one day – and thus a little less than the day before. The number of deaths has also decreased slightly.

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 Saturday morning at 64.4. The previous day the value was 63.8, a week ago it was also 64.4 (previous month: 83.5). The health authorities in Germany reported 8,854 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 3:56 a.m. A week ago the value was 8517 infections.

According to the new information, 65 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 66 deaths. The RKI has counted 4,302,661 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 Friday at 1.67. That corresponds roughly to the value of the previous week. A nationwide threshold, 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 4,082,100. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 94,178.

Note: The RKI figures usually deviate slightly from the case data that reports daily in the evening. The 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.
