Berlin (dpa) - The health authorities in Germany reported 213 corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. As a result, 182,028 people in Germany have demonstrably contracted Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the Corona crisis (data status as of 02.06. 0 o'clock).
The RKI points out that due to quality checks, the daily updated data can still change. In addition, the number of new cases could also contain errors for technical reasons.
So far, according to RKI information in Germany, 8522 have been diagnosed as infected with the virus, increasing the number of reported deaths by 11 within 24 hours. According to RKI estimates, around 166,400 people have survived the infection, 600 more than a day earlier .
According to the latest information from the Robert Koch Institute, the number of reproductions, or R-value for short, was 1.20 on Monday (data status 1.6. 0 o'clock; previous day: 1.04). This means that an infected person infects a little more than another person on average. The R value shows the infection process approximately one and a half weeks beforehand.
Since mid-May, the RKI has also given a so-called 7-day R. It refers to a longer period and is therefore less subject to daily fluctuations. According to RKI estimates, this value (data status 1.6. 0 o'clock) was 0.95 (previous day: 0.90). It shows the infection process 8 to 16 days ago.
