The seven-day incidence in Germany rose for the seventh day in a row.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Wednesday morning at 80.4.

For comparison: the previous day the value was 75.1, a week ago it was 65.4.

The health authorities in Germany reported 17,015 new corona infections to the RKI within one day.

This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:52 a.m.

A week ago the value was 11,903 infections.

According to the new information, 92 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.

A week ago there were also 92 deaths.

The RKI has counted 4,401,631 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 - the most important parameter for a possible tightening of the corona restrictions - was given by the RKI on Tuesday as 2.13 (Monday 1.92).

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 4,174,400.

The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 94,808.

Because: No hasty exit from the corona measures

According to a media report, several state governments are calling for nationwide solutions in the fight against the epidemic even after the pandemic situation expired on November 25.

These are Rhineland-Palatinate, Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia and Tübingen, according to a preliminary report from the editorial network Germany.

“Nobody wants that there will be a patchwork quilt in dealing with the pandemic in Germany after the epidemic situation of national scope is over,” explains Rhineland-Palatinate Health Minister Clemens Hoch.

Lower Saxony's Prime Minister Stephan Weil warns of a hasty end to all corona measures. "What must not happen with a view to autumn and winter is a replacement without replacement of the protective rules," said the SPD politician of the German Press Agency in Hanover. "We still have difficult months ahead of us." Before the talks about the formation of a possible traffic light coalition in the federal government, Weil also made it clear that the still open financing of the comprehensive climate protection and digitization plans would be one of the decisive points.

In the pandemic, it is important to remain cautious.

"We can see that the incidences are much higher in the group of those who have not been vaccinated," emphasized the head of government from Hanover.

One will "have to look very closely at how the federal government is positioning itself on this issue".

In the debate as to whether the so-called epidemic situation - determined by the Bundestag in March 2020 and repeatedly extended - could soon be lifted, Lower Saxony's Minister of Health Daniela Behrens (SPD) was also rather skeptical: It was not yet time to get on with it to say goodbye to the rules of protection.
