The health authorities in Germany reported 17 015 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:52 a.m. A week ago the value was 11,903 infections.
According to the new information, 92 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. The RKI has counted 4,401,631 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not recognized.
The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days – the most important parameter for a possible tightening of the corona restrictions – was given by the RKI on Tuesday as 2.13 (Monday 1.92). A Germany-wide threshold, from when the situation can be viewed critically, is not provided for the incidence of hospitalization, among other things because of large regional differences. The previous high was around 15.5 around Christmas time.
