95,811 corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday.
This is the highest daily reading since August 2nd.
Compared to the previous week, there is an increase of no less than 69 percent.
This is the 15th consecutive business day with a week-on-week increase.
Remaining doubts as to whether we are headed for an autumn wave should have been dispelled as of today.
An important point in this context:
Since the authorities refused to publish the number of cases at the weekend, Monday, with its many late reports, has established itself as the day of the week with the highest number of cases.
In this week, however, the Tuesday value still exceeds the already high Monday value - a pretty good indication of the force of the wave.
The 7-day average of new corona cases is 42 percent higher than a week ago.
This is an exceptionally high value that has only been observed occasionally since the beginning of the pandemic.
The number of urban and rural districts with a corona incidence of more than 500 was 24 out of 412 the day before yesterday, 40 yesterday – and 85 today.
The nationwide incidence jumps for the second day in a row, from 335 to 380.
Bavaria (503) is now the second federal state after Saarland (628) with an incidence above the 500 threshold.
Compared to the previous day, the incidence is increasing in 15 of the 16 federal states, with the exception of Hamburg.
In comparison to the previous week, all federal states are without exception in the plus.
138 corona deaths were reported to the RKI yesterday, 48 more than a week ago.
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.
