A new day, a new high in the number of corona cases: a week ago there were 52,970 new infections. The incidence continues to rise. 357 deaths were recorded within 24 hours.
The number of new corona infections transmitted to the Robert Koch Institute within one day has reached a high again. According to the RKI, the health authorities reported 76,414 cases in 24 hours on Friday morning. Exactly one week ago there were 52,970 new infections recorded. The RKI gave the seven-day incidence of 438.2 – also a maximum. For comparison: the previous day the value was 419.7, a week ago it was 340.7 (previous month: 113.0). This is evident from the figures that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 3:32 a.m.
According to the new information, 357 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 201 deaths. The RKI has counted 5,650,170 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 recognized.
The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Thursday as 5.79 (Wednesday: 5.74). The value plays an essential role in assessing the occurrence of the infection. If limit values 3, 6 and 9 are exceeded in the federal states, stricter measures to combat the pandemic can be imposed there.
The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered on Friday at 4,775,300. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 100,476.
