There is currently hardly any momentum in the infection process in Germany.

The seven-day incidence of new corona infections is 81.1 as of Tuesday morning, according to the Robert Koch Institute.

For comparison: the previous day the value was 81.9, a week ago it was 83.8.

The health authorities in Germany reported 6,325 new corona infections to the RKI within one day.

This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:06 a.m.

A week ago the value was 6726 infections.

According to the new information, 68 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.

A week ago there were 59 deaths.

The RKI has counted 4,089,476 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 number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Monday as 1.79 (Friday: 1.95).

A weekly or monthly comparison is not possible due to the high number of late registrations.

A nationwide threshold value from when the situation can be viewed critically is not provided for the incidence of hospitalization, among other things because of large regional differences.

The previous high was around 15.5 around Christmas time.

The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,841,800.

The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 92,686.

Corona and influenza vaccination at the same time if possible

The chairman of the German Association of General Practitioners, Ulrich Weigeldt, has called for more public support for flu vaccinations. "The most important thing for the second Corona autumn will be that as many people as possible get vaccinated, not only against the corona virus, but also against the flu," he told the Rheinische Post newspaper. The influenza vaccination should by no means be forgotten, it also makes a decisive contribution to protecting the population and relieving the burden on the health system. "Everything must therefore be done to ensure that there are no logistical or organizational obstacles in the way of the practices."

It was desirable that the corona and influenza vaccinations could be administered at the same time as possible, said the general practitioner boss.

“We can do without regional delivery bottlenecks, as they were often the case in the past,” says Weigeldt.

In addition, he criticized the limited view of corona warning values.

“I am surprised by the ongoing focus on daily updated incidence or hospitalization figures.

Hardly any doctor's practice would rebalance decisions based on the vaccination rate or incidence value every day - also because they are unfortunately still very imprecise and say little about the individual situation on site. "
