The RKI gave the seven-day incidence on Wednesday morning nationwide as 20.8 (previous day: 22.9; previous week: 36.8).

Seven-day R-value continues to decline
The RKI has counted 3,705,942 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, however, since many infections are not recognized.
The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,557,600. The number of people who died with or with the involvement of a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 is now given as 89,491.
The nationwide seven-day R-value was 0.71 according to the RKI situation report from Tuesday afternoon (previous day: 0.76). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 71 more people. The R-value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.
