Corona numbers are increasing: RKI registered 7,676 new infections – Germany and worldwide


Berlin (dpa) – Despite the strict lockdown, the number of new corona infections in Germany has risen again.

 The  Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported 7,676 new cases within one day on Sunday. That is 1562 more than on Sunday a week ago.


 The  so-called seven-day incidence also increased to 60.2 nationwide. On the previous day, the number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants was 57.8. ©

 The  previous high was reached on December 22nd at 197.6.

In addition, 145 new deaths related to the virus were registered within 24 hours, according to figures from the RKI on Sunday. On Sunday, the number of cases reported by the RKI is usually lower, partly because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend. ©

 The  data reflect the status of the RKI dashboard from Sunday at 3:10 a.m., subsequent changes or additions to the RKI are possible.

On Sunday a week ago, the RKI had recorded 6114 new infections and 218 new deaths within one day. ©

 The  high of 1,244 newly reported deaths was reached on January 14th. With 33,777 new infections registered within 24 hours, the highest value was reached on December 18. However, it contained 3,500 late registrations.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the RKI has counted 2,386,559 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany (as of February 21, 3:10 a.m.). ©

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

 The  total number of people who died with or with a proven Sars-CoV-2 infection rose to 67,841.


 The  RKI gave the nationwide seven-day R-value on Saturday afternoon as 1.07 (previous day 1.01). That is the highest value in several weeks. This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 107 more people. This could indicate that the more contagious virus variants are spreading faster despite the lockdown.
