73,856 new corona cases were reported to the RKI for yesterday. In a week-on-week comparison, this again results in a strong increase of 57 percent.
The 7-day average of new infections also continues to rise – it is currently around 62,000 cases. It is the highest value since early August.
However, there was again an under-recording yesterday, which will make further late registrations necessary. The state government in Stuttgart reports "technical disruptions" and an early data closure.
The autumn wave is in full swing. The 7-day average for new infections is already above the peak of last year's pre-Christmas wave. At that time, the 7-day average of the reported new infections remained just below the 60,000 mark.
Compared to October 1 of last year, the infection level is currently almost eight times higher.
The nationwide 7-day incidence also continues to rise sharply, from 466 yesterday to 497 now. It is also rising in all federal states with the exception of Thuringia the day before.
In a week-on-week comparison, almost all countries even recorded three-digit increases in incidence, especially Saarland (plus 341) and Bavaria (plus 338). The only exceptions to this are the city states of Hamburg (plus 73) and Berlin (plus 65).
In addition, urban and rural districts have been reporting 7-day incidence values of more than 1000 for more than a week. Four districts have exceeded the symbolic threshold - and thus as many as almost two months ago.
The new super hotspots include the districts of Fürstenfeldbruck and Ebersberg near Munich, both of which are likely to be affected by the Wiesn factor.
116 corona deaths were reported to the RKI yesterday.
The number adds up to 606 deceased in the current week. The level of the previous week has already been exceeded.
