There is still little dynamic in the seven-day incidence in Germany. The value rises to 68.7 from 67.0 the previous day. The number of new corona cases is also increasing slightly compared to the previous week.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Friday morning as 68.7. For comparison: the previous day the value was 67.0, a week ago it was 63.8 (previous month: 77.9). The health authorities in Germany reported 11,518 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:21 a.m. A week ago, the value was 10,429 infections.

According to the new information, 65 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 86 deaths. The RKI has counted 4,354,158 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 1.93 (Wednesday 1.90). 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 4,134,100. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 94,526.
