The health authorities in Germany reported 42,813 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. Exactly one week ago there were 53,697 infections. The number of reported infections has been falling for almost three weeks. However, due to the more contagious Omicron variant, experts fear an imminent trend reversal.

414 more deaths

According to the new information, 414 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 510 deaths. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 108,053. According to the RKI, the number of those who have recovered is 5,724,100.

Hospitalization incidence drops to 5.10

On November 18, the federal and state governments set the so-called hospitalization incidence as the decisive yardstick for tightening the corona measures. This value indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants are in hospital within seven days because of a corona infection. From a value of three, the 2G rule applies across the board for events in a federal state – that is, only those vaccinated against the coronavirus and those recovered from Covid-19 are allowed.

The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was most recently given by the RKI as 5.10 (previous day: 5.17).
