Corona pandemic: Incidence rises to 909.1

Status: 04/26/2022 04:51 a.m

Around 136,800 new infections were reported to the RKI within one day. The nationwide seven-day incidence thus increases to 909.1. The day before it was still 790.8.

The nationwide seven-day incidence of new corona infections has risen to over 900. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value on Tuesday morning as 909.1.

It was 790.8 the day before and 669.9 a week ago. The seven-day incidence quantifies the number of new infections registered per 100,000 inhabitants during this period.

As the RKI further reported, citing data from the health authorities, the number of new infections reported within 24 hours was 136,798, after 20,084 the day before and 22,483 a week ago.

The total number of cases of infection recorded in Germany since the beginning of the corona pandemic has increased to 24,337,394. According to the RKI, 304 other deaths related to the corona virus were also registered within 24 hours. The total number of corona deaths recorded in Germany rose to 134,489.

Comparison of daily values ​​increasingly difficult

When considering the values, it must be taken into account that individual states do not report data every day of the week, and at weekends, for example, Baden-Württemberg, Lower Saxony, Brandenburg and Saxony do not, or only partially, report data. This in turn leads to late registrations on the following days. A comparison of daily values ​​is therefore becoming increasingly difficult.

Experts have been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to overworked health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test done. Only these count in the statistics.
