Incidence hardly changed: RKI registers 92 new deaths

The seven-day incidence has fallen slightly, but remains roughly the same as in the past few days. The RKI reports 11,903 new infections, which is more than a week ago. Deaths are also increasing.

There is little dynamic 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 Wednesday morning at 65.4. For comparison: the previous day the value was 65.8, a week ago it was 62.3 (previous month: 81.9). The health authorities in Germany reported 11,903 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 04.23 a.m. A week ago the value was 11,547 infections.

According to the new information, 92 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 76 deaths. The RKI has counted 4,330,258 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 the previous day as 1.70 (Monday: 1.58). 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 4,116,400. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 94,389.

Note: The RKI figures usually differ 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.
