Number of corona deaths in Germany exceeds 50,000 mark
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 aim of the policy is an incidence of less than 50 in order to be able to trace infection chains.
Infected since the beginning of the corona pandemic
The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher as many infections are not recognized.
Seven-day R-value below 1
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.
