The seven-day incidence continues to rise. The Robert Koch Institute registered over 1500 new infections – a week ago it was less than 1000.
The seven-day incidence has been increasing every day for more than a week. According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), it was 7.1 – the previous day the value was 6.5, and the most recent low on July 6th was 4.9.
The health authorities in Germany reported 1,548 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This can be seen from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:50 a.m. For comparison: a week ago the value was 985 infections.
The incidence has so far been the basis for many corona restrictions in the pandemic, for example as part of the federal emergency brake that expired at the end of June. In the future, other values such as hospital admissions are to be taken into account to a greater extent.
According to the new information, 28 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 48 dead. The RKI has counted 3,738,683 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 RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,636,800. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 91,287.
According to RKI data from Tuesday, the reproductive number, which is decisive for the speed of spread of the coronavirus, was 1.11 and has thus been above the value of 1 for more than a week. The number means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 111 more people. If the value is consistently above 1, the number of cases increases. If it is below 1 for a long time, the infection process subsides. The R-value was previously well below 1 for around two months.
