The RKI reports 18,935 new corona infections and 232 deaths within one day. Evolves with it

Berlin (dpa) – Health authorities in Germany reported 18,935 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. In addition, 232 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours.

This is evident from the figures showing the status of the RKI dashboard on 05.07. Later changes or additions to the RKI are possible. A week ago, the RKI had registered 23,392 new infections and 286 new deaths within one day on Saturday.

According to the RKI, the number of new infections per 100,000 residents reported within seven days within seven days nationwide on Saturday morning was 148.6 – meaning the seven-day incidence is falling for the fifth day in a row. The day before, the RKI had estimated this seven-day incidence at 153.4, a week ago at 164.4.

The RKI has counted 3,400,532 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 in Germany since the start of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections go undetected. The RKI put the number recovered at about 3,012,100. The total number of people who died with or with proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 83,082.

The national seven-day R-value was 0.94 according to the RKI management report of Friday evening (previous day: 0.92). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 94 more people. The R value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it stays below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process decreases; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.
