The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has reported a peak in national incidence of seven days. The RKI gave the value of new infections per 100,000 population per week on Saturday morning at 1496.0.
For comparison: the day before the value was 1439.0. A week ago, the national incidence was 1,220.8 (previous month: 1,474.3). The German health authorities informed the RKI of 237,086 new corona infections in one day. This is evident from the numbers reflecting the status of the RKI panel at 5:03 am A week ago there were 192,210 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.
249 recorded deaths
According to the new information, 249 deaths were recorded in Germany in 24 hours. A week ago there were 255 deaths. The RKI has counted 16,994,744 infections detected with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections go undetected.
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 RKI gave the number of people recovered on Saturday at 13,273,700. The number of people who have died or involved a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 125,521.
