58,685 corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday.
In a week-on-week comparison, we are now at 21 consecutive weekday declines.
Today, however, the minus is only two percent.
The 7-day incidence in Germany is increasing slightly today, from 312 to 314.
This is the first increase since July 26.
Of course, it could just be an outlier.
However, special effects in individual federal states are not the cause. Rather, the incidence is increasing in ten of the 16 federal states.
In addition, the week-on-week comparison of the 7-day average has been showing at least a slowdown in the downward momentum for days.
The number of federal states whose incidence is already above the previous week's level increases from three to six.
The downward momentum is still most clearly intact in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg – those federal states that were the last to start the summer holidays.
Rhineland-Palatinate, Hesse and Saarland, where the holidays also started late, are still clearly in the red.
As yesterday and the day before yesterday, the incidence is highest in those three federal states where the school year has already started: Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, NRW and Schleswig-Holstein.
In Hamburg it's back to school from today.
The Hanseatic city's incidence is well below the national average.
However, Hamburg has now ranked above the level of the previous week for the second day, so there may be signs of a trend reversal.
184 deceased were reported to the RKI yesterday, 31 more than a week ago.
In total, we are at 516 deceased so far this week.
