 The  Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has reported 50,642 deaths since March last year. Exactly one week ago, 1,113 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours. © www.de24.news

 The  previous record high was on January 14th at 1,244 deaths.

Without restrictions, the number of deaths would be higher

 The  RKI counts verifiably infected people who died directly from Corona and those with previous illnesses for which the cause of death cannot be conclusively clarified as a Covid-19 death. It is at the discretion of the health department whether to submit a case to the RKI as deceased “to” or “with” Covid-19. Researchers assume that the number of Covid-19 deaths would be many times higher without the corona restrictions.

Seven-day incidence continues to decline

 The  seven-day incidence nationwide is 115.3. It indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants were infected with the virus within a week. It has been falling continuously over the past few days.

 The  differences between the federal states, however, remain large: Thuringia has the highest incidences with 218.4 and Brandenburg with 194.4. Bremen has the lowest value with 80.9. © www.de24.news

 The  aim of the policy is an incidence of less than 50 in order to be able to trace infection chains.

 The  RKI has counted 2,106,262 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic (as of January 22, 00:00). © www.de24.news

 The  actual total number is likely to be significantly higher as many infections are not recognized.

Seven-day R-value below 1

 The  nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.93 (previous day: 0.87) according to the RKI situation report from Thursday evening. This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 93 other people. © www.de24.news

 The  value represents the occurrence of the infection eight to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a long time, the infection process subsides.
