ROUNDUP 2: RKI registers 52,970 new corona infections – incidence at 340.7
(New / added in the 1st paragraph: For technical reasons, no data from Saxony was processed at the RKI on Thursday.)
BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The nationwide seven-day incidence has risen again. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Friday morning at 340.7. For comparison: the previous day the value was 336.9, a week ago it was 263.7 (previous month: 75.1). The health authorities in Germany reported 52,970 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 3:48 a.m. However, there are no reported cases from Saxony. “For technical reasons, no data from Saxony was processed at the RKI yesterday,” said the RKI on request. “We will of course try to find a solution.” Exactly one week ago there were 48,640 infections.
According to the new information, 201 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 191 deaths. The RKI has counted 5,248,291 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total 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 Thursday at 5.30 (Wednesday: 5.15). With the indicator it must be taken into account that hospital admissions are sometimes reported with delay. The previous high was around 15.5 around Christmas last year.
The RKI stated the number of people recovered as 4,588,200. The number of people who died with or with the involvement of a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 98,739./klü/DP/mis
