Incidence value drops minimally
RKI reports 415 more deaths
The Robert Koch Institute recorded 3883 new cases. In contrast, the number of deaths has decreased somewhat compared to the previous day of the week.
The health authorities in Germany reported 3883 new cases to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. In addition, 415 additional deaths were recorded within 24 hours. This is evident from the RKI figures. Exactly a week ago, it had recorded 3856 new infections and 528 new deaths within one day.
The data reflect the status of the RKI dashboard from 3:11 a.m., subsequent changes or additions are possible. According to the RKI, the number of new infections reported within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants (seven-day incidence) was 60.5 nationwide in the morning – and thus slightly lower than the previous day (61.0). Four weeks ago, on January 26, the incidence had been 107.6. Its previous high was reached on December 22nd at 197.6.
The high of 1,244 newly reported deaths was reached on January 14th. Among the new infections registered within 24 hours, the highest value was reached on December 18 with 33,777 – but it contained 3500 late reports.
The total number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 68,318.
The value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a long time, the infection process subsides.
The RKI, on the other hand, is bound by the legally prescribed reporting channels, which can lead to a delay.
In addition, the respective daily values map different recording periods: the ntv evaluation collects the country information published by the evening and uses this to calculate a daily status of the reported number of cases, which is usually published from 8 p.m.
The RKI’s recording system, on the other hand, takes into account incoming reports up to midnight, with the current data status being announced the following morning.
