The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has given the nationwide seven-day incidence in the morning at 74.8. This is evident from numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5 a.m. The day before, the value of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week was 80.1 (previous week: 115.7; previous month: 236.6).
However, this information only provides a very incomplete picture of the number of infections. Experts have been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI - mainly because not all infected people have a PCR test done. However, only positive PCR tests count in the statistics. In addition, late registrations and transmission problems can lead to the distortion of individual daily values.
238 deaths in one day
Within one day, the health authorities in Germany reported 12,001 new corona infections to the RKI (previous week: 19,379 and 238 deaths (previous week: 181). Here too, comparisons of the data are only possible to a limited extent due to the test behavior, late reports and transmission problems.
The number of registered new infections and deaths generally fluctuates significantly from weekday to weekday, since many federal states do not transmit them to the RKI, especially at weekends, and report their cases later in the week.
The RKI has counted 37,649,808 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 go undetected.
