The seven-day incidence has risen again.

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Saturday morning, it was 72.1.

The previous day the value was 70.3, a week ago it was 51.6.

The health authorities in Germany reported 10,303 new corona infections to the RKI within one day.

This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 04.42 a.m.

A week ago, the value for Germany was 8092 infections.

According to the new information, 22 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.

A week ago there were 17 deaths.

The RKI has counted 3,924,131 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 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.

The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,723,200.

The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 92,118.

"We liked being guinea pigs"

Vice Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) has called on people with corona vaccination in Germany to convince the unvaccinated of the vaccination. "Convince your loved ones, convince the friends at the regulars' table, convince the sports club, convince the colleagues in the company," said Scholz on Friday at an election event in Berlin. "We all liked to be your guinea pigs - the vaccination went well with us, now please do it too."

Scholz said: “A new lockdown, again a time without face-to-face teaching in the schools, it can and must not happen under these circumstances.” Therefore, there will still have to be “a few more precautionary rules” - “that is with the masks , not only here, but also on buses and trains ”.

Anyone who goes to a restaurant or club should be vaccinated, recovered or tested.

It is difficult, but better than the tough lockdown measures of the past.

Delta patients often in the hospital

According to a study, the risk of hospitalization is around twice as high as with the alpha variant if you are infected with the delta variant of the coronavirus. Researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Public Health England authority evaluated more than 40,000 corona cases in England between the end of March and the end of May 2021. The results published in the journal “Lancet Infectious Diseases” relate primarily to the risk for unvaccinated people. The data do not allow any conclusions to be drawn for fully vaccinated persons.
