RKI reports an incidence of 35.1 and 1978 new corona infections

Dhe health authorities in Germany reported new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day in 1978. For comparison: a week ago the value was 2682 infections. The RKI gave the seven-day incidence on Monday morning as nationwide 35.1 (previous day: 35.2; previous week: 62.5).

According to the information, 36 new deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 43 dead.

The RKI has counted 3,681,126 detected infections with the Sars-CoV-2 virus since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, however, since many infections are not recognized.

The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,486,700. The number of people who died with or with the involvement of a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 is now given as 88,442.

According to the RKI situation report, the nationwide seven-day R-value on Sunday afternoon was 0.75 (previous day: 0.75). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 75 more people. The R-value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.

Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU) expects that “around 90 percent” of adults willing to vaccinate in Germany will receive a vaccination against the coronavirus by mid-July. He said that on Sunday evening on the ARD talk show “Anne Will”. He assumes a willingness to vaccinate “70 to 75 percent” of adults. Spahn also referred to the dynamism of vaccinations in Germany – if only 12 percent of citizens were vaccinated at Easter, the number had risen to almost 40 percent by Pentecost. Most recently, according to the Robert Koch Institute, the vaccination quota was 42.2 percent, so full vaccinations were 17.1 percent.
