According to the RKI management report on Friday evening, the nationwide seven-day R-value was 1.01 (previous day 0.94). ©

 The  value means that 100 infected people infect 101 more people.


 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.

How common is Corona worldwide?


 The  private Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore (USA) determines the worldwide number of corona cases. If you compare the German numbers of Johns Hopkins with those of the RKI, then the RKI seems to be lagging behind in recording new corona cases. Reason: Both institutions determine the number of cases in different ways.

This is how the RKI works

As an independent federal authority for infectious diseases, the Robert Koch Institute is currently determining all of our lives with its figures, examinations and the knowledge gained from them. People with 90 different professions from 50 nations work there. Of the 1296 employees, 1224 are in Berlin and 72 in the branch in Wernigerode. ©

 The  Berlin 24/7 situation center alone has 150 employees.
