The nationwide seven-day incidence of new corona infections has again decreased slightly.

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Friday morning, the value was 413.7.

The day before it was 422.3, a week ago it was 442.1.

As the RKI further reported, citing data from the health authorities, 61,288 new infections were recorded within 24 hours.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the health authorities have reported a total of 6,423,520 cases.

The institute put the number of people recovered from illness caused by the coronavirus in Germany at around 5,329,300.

The total number of corona deaths in Germany rose by 484 to 104,996.

The seven-day incidence indicates the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week.

The value has risen rapidly since the beginning of November.

As a result, new highs were recorded every day.

The incidence has been falling steadily since the beginning of the week.

On November 18, the federal and state governments set the so-called hospitalization incidence as the decisive benchmark for tightening the corona measures.

This value indicates how many people per 100,000 inhabitants are in hospital within seven days because of a corona infection.

From a value of three, the 2G rule applies across the board for events in a federal state - that is, only those vaccinated against the coronavirus and those recovered from Covid-19 are allowed.

According to the RKI, the nationwide hospitalization incidence on Thursday was 5.75.
