The infection rate in Germany is expanding: According to the RKI, the seven-day incidence has reached a new high and is now 277.4. 228 new deaths were also recorded.

The nationwide seven-day incidence has again risen to a high. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week at 277.4. For comparison: the previous day the value was 263.7, a week ago it was 183.7 (previous month: 65.4). The health authorities in Germany reported 45,081 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. On Thursday, the number of new infections reached 50,196, a record since the beginning of the pandemic. Exactly one week ago the value was 34,002 infections.

According to the new information, 228 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 142 deaths. The RKI has counted 4,987,971 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 incidence of hospitalization is also increasing

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 for yesterday at 4.70 (Thursday: 4.65). With the indicator it must be taken into account that hospital admissions are sometimes reported with delay.

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 4,466,000. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 97,617.
