The seven-day incidence continues to rise.

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Monday morning, it was 36.2 - the previous day the value was 35.0, a week ago it was 23.1.

The health authorities in Germany reported 2126 new corona infections to the RKI within one day.

This is based on figures from Monday morning, which reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:30 a.m.

A week ago, the value for Germany was 1183 infections.

The incidence has so far been the basis for many corona restrictions in the pandemic, for example as part of the federal emergency brake that expired at the end of June.

In the future, other values ​​such as hospital admissions are to be taken into account to a greater extent.

According to the new information, four deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.

There had been two deaths a week ago.

The RKI has counted 3,823,139 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 detected.

The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,682,000.

The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 91,871.

Söder calls for new thresholds

According to the head of the CSU, Markus Söder, the federal and state governments should agree on new limits and thresholds before the general election.

Due to the numerous vaccinations, the incidence alone is no longer good, says Söder in the political talk of the Bild newspaper.

In addition to the incidence, hospitalization and the vaccination rate are part of it, in order to be able to decide from what number and from which vaccination rate one can assume a relatively low risk of spread.

It must be clear to everyone that the incidences would rise before the general election.

Karliczek: Right to access to schools
