For seven days, the incidence rate in Germany continues to decline

Germany can slowly breathe a sigh of relief in light of the pandemic. The number of new infections and the incidence for seven days continued to decrease at the beginning of the week. This emerges from RKI’s current report.

Health authorities in Germany You have Robert Koch Institute (RKI) 4,209 new coronavirus cases reported within one day. This is evidenced by the numbers from Tuesday morning, which reflects the status of the RKI Status Numbers page from 8:11 am. For comparison: a week ago the value was 6,125 infections, but the data record did not contain the number of cases from Brandenburg. The number of new infections per 100,000 residents reported within seven days was determined by RKI Tuesday morning as 79.5 nationwide (previous day: 83.1; previous week: 115.4).

Given the recent weekend, when interpreting the number of cases, it’s worth noting that fewer people visit the doctor on public holidays and bridge days, which means fewer samples are taken and fewer lab tests are done, according to the RKI Department’s report on Monday. “This means that fewer pathogens are reported to the responsible health authorities.”

The infection rate decreases

According to the information, 221 new deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 283 dead.

The RKI index counted a total of 3,603,055 infections detected with SARS-CoV-2 since the start of the epidemic. The actual total number is likely to be much higher, as many infections are not recognized. The number of people who have died with or due to confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection is now 86,381.

According to the RKI management report Monday evening, the seven-day nationwide R value was 0.77 (previous day: 0.82). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 77 others. The R value represents the incidence of infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is less than 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; If it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.
