Incidence is increasing slightly: RKI registers 12,382 new infections

The infection rate remains constant in Germany. According to the RKI, the seven-day incidence increases only slightly. The institute gives the now more important hospitalization incidence at 1.90.

There is little dynamic in the seven-day incidence in Germany. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) currently gives the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week at 67.0. For comparison: the previous day the value was 65.4, a week ago it was 62.6 (previous month: 81.1). The health authorities in Germany reported 12,382 new corona infections within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 04:14. A week ago, the value was 11,644 infections.

According to the new information, 72 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 68 deaths. The RKI has counted 4,342,640 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.

Hospitalization incidence at 1.90

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 – is given by the RKI as 1.90 (Tuesday: 1.70). 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 gives the number of those who have recovered at 4,125,100. A total of 94,461 people died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2.

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.
