In the heyday of the pandemic, it was a daily point of contact for many - now it is being discontinued: The Covid 19 dashboard of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). This Friday is the last time it is online.

The dashboard was launched in March 2020 and has been partially updated daily. For example, there was an overview of the reported new corona infections, deaths and the 7-day incidence - both nationwide and for federal states and at district level.

A spokeswoman for the RKI said at the request of the dpa that in the current situation it was no longer necessary to prepare the reporting data in this form. The data will continue to be available from Monday to Friday in the RKI's so-called pandemic radar and in the online service Github.

The dashboard thus follows other pandemic tools that were previously terminated, such as the Corona warning app on Thursday: It has been in sleep mode since June, so contact tracing is no longer necessary, but vaccination certificates can still be used if necessary. SPIEGEL has not updated the corona data since March.
