The value is lower than on the weekend, but higher than a week ago: The RKI has reported more than 11,000 new infections with the coronavirus.
Within one day, 11,169 new cases were submitted by the health authorities. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) announced this morning. The previous high was reached on Friday a week ago (November 20) with 23,648 reported cases. Last Monday the number was 10,864. On Sundays and Mondays, the numbers are comparatively low because, according to the RKI, fewer samples are taken on the weekend and therefore fewer tests are carried out overall.
The German health authorities also reported 125 new deaths within 24 hours. The trend in the number of daily deaths had recently increased, which was also expected after the steep increase in new infections. The total number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to a total of 16,248.
R-value decreased slightly
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the RKI has counted a total of 1,053,869 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany (as of November 30, 00:00). It is estimated that around 739,100 people have now recovered.
According to the RKI management report on Sunday, the so-called seven-day R-value was 0.95 (previous day: 0.96). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 95 more people. The value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If the value is below 1 for a long time, the infection rate subsides.
