47,179 corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday, a sharp drop of 23 percent compared to the previous week.
The nationwide 7-day incidence is falling slightly, from 217 to 212, and it's falling in 13 of the 16 states.
Both are unusual: Since case numbers have not been published on weekends, the incidence reported on Tuesday has usually increased due to the late reports that have become due – even if the trend is actually pointing downwards.
The fact that this Tuesday dip in the downward trend does not occur rarely happens - and can be taken as an indication that the downward momentum is still strong and intact.
This is also indicated by the previous week comparisons of the 7-day average and active cases, both of which are more than 25 percent in the red.
The strong infection dynamics that Germany experienced in November last year will not materialize this November.
The 7-day average of new corona cases drops to 27,693.
For the first time, the lows reached after the summer wave at the beginning of September have been undercut.
The current 7-day value is the lowest since Pentecost.
219 corona deaths were reported to the RKI yesterday, 31 fewer than a week ago.
