Not a single new corona case was reported to the RKI yesterday – apparently all 16 federal states were on a reporting strike.

The RKI has not reported a single infection for two days in a row. That has never happened since March 2020.

Accordingly, late registrations on a larger scale are to be expected at the beginning of the week.

In the course of the nationwide reporting strike in the federal states on Sunday, the 7-day incidence fell from 725 to 709.

In the previous week comparison, there is a plus of 47 points.

In five of the 16 federal states, the incidence is down compared to the previous week.

Summer holidays have been in all five for more than a week – as is Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, which has the smallest plus among the other eleven countries.

It is still unclear whether the holiday effect will also show up in the three federal states that have had holidays since last Thursday, namely Bremen, Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.

At the peak of the second wave of omicrons in spring, the number of under-15 cases was almost as high as the number of over-60 cases.

Recently, on the other hand, there have been more than twice as many cases in the (particularly vulnerable) age of more than 60 years as cases under 15. And the gap continues to widen.

663 corona deaths were reported to the RKI in the past calendar week.

In a calendar week comparison, the number of deaths has increased for the fourth time in a row.

It is now at an eight-week high.

Every day we hear the new Corona case numbers. But what do they mean, where are we in the pandemic and what is the trend? Laurin Meyer briefly and concisely explains and evaluates the current figures – every morning.
