The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has again reported a maximum value for the national incidence of seven days.
The RKI gave the value of new infections per 100,000 population per week on Monday morning at 1543.0. For comparison: the day before the value was 1526.8. A week ago, the national incidence was 1,259.2 (previous month: 1,459.8). The German health authorities informed the RKI of 92,378 new corona infections in one day. A week ago there were 78,428 infections.
Experts assume a large number of cases are not recorded in the RKI data. One reason is the limited capacity of health authorities, for example, and contacts are often only traced to a limited extent.
17,233,729 infections detected
According to the new information, 19 deaths were recorded in Germany in 24 hours. A week ago there were 24 deaths. The number of people who have died or involved a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 is now 125,590.
The RKI has counted 17,233,729 confirmed Sars-CoV-2 infections since the start of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections go undetected. The RKI gave the number of people recovered on Monday at 13,501,400.
The number of corona-infected patients attending clinics per 100,000 population in seven days was 7.0 according to the RKI on Friday (Thursday: 6.74). Among them there are many people with a positive corona test who have another main disease. The value is not reported on weekends.
