37,343 corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday.
Compared to the previous week, there is a minus of 20 percent.
This is the 27th consecutive business day of a week-on-week decline.
The downward trend in the number of cases is no longer weakening, on the contrary: it is currently gaining momentum again - this can be seen, for example, in the curve that shows the 7-day average of the new cases compared to the previous week.
The 7-day incidence continues to decline, from 271 to 264.
It also falls in 15 of the 16 federal states.
The outlier here is Berlin again, where the incidence has increased significantly for the second day in a row.
In the capital, the incidence is now also above the level of the previous week – unlike in all other federal states.
It is still unclear whether increased testing in Berlin is the reason – the school year started on Monday.
90 corona deaths were reported to the RKI yesterday.
That's 79 fewer than a week ago.
The 7-day average has now fallen by a quarter within a week and a half – from 120 to 89.
In the current week we have so far reached a total of 499 deceased.
A calendar week comparison is already showing a decline.
The very significant drop in the number of deaths was to be expected. Experience has shown that the number of cases is three weeks ahead of the number of deaths, and the number of cases fell sharply after the peak of the summer wave at the beginning of July.
The number of deaths is expected to continue to fall over the next three weeks.
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? Olaf Gersemann explains and evaluates the current figures briefly and concisely - every morning anew.
