Berlin (dpa) - Within one day, the health authorities in Germany reported 1769 new corona infections.

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), at least 275,927 people in Germany have demonstrably been infected with the Sars-CoV-2 virus since the beginning of the Corona crisis (data status 23.9., 0.00 a.m.).

According to the RKI, the number of deaths in connection with a corona infection is 9409. That is 13 more than the day before.

Around 245,400 people survived the infection according to RKI estimates.

On Saturday, the highest value since April was reached with 2297 new corona infections.

"After a temporary stabilization of the number of cases at an increased level, a further increase in transmissions in the population in Germany can currently be observed," wrote the RKI in its management report on Tuesday.

The peak of new infections reported daily was at more than 6000 at the end of March / beginning of April.

The number then tended to decrease and increase again in July.

In August, the number of cases was just over 2000 (2034).

The number of new infections detected also depends on how many people are tested.

According to RKI estimates in Germany, according to the management report on Wednesday, the number of reproductions, or R value for short, was 0.79 (previous day: 0.92).

This means that an infected person infects slightly less than another person on average.

The R-value depicts the infection rate about one and a half weeks beforehand.

In addition, the RKI gives a so-called seven-day R in its current situation report.

The value relates to a longer period of time and is therefore less subject to daily fluctuations.

According to RKI estimates, this value was 0.95 (previous day: 0.99).

It shows the infection process from 8 to 16 days ago.
