78,863 corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday.
Compared to the previous week, there is an increase of 38 percent.
The new figures show that the autumn wave is gaining strength - even though there is obviously a drastic under-recording of the cases from Baden-Württemberg and Lower Saxony.
The RKI reports 996 cases for Baden-Württemberg and 1425 for Lower Saxony; neighboring (and smaller) Hesse, on the other hand, has 9083 cases, for comparison.
Much higher numbers (13,906 cases) are reported on the homepage of the Stuttgart state government.
The 7-day average of new corona cases is more than 50,000 for the first time since August 9th.
And the momentum of the autumn wave continues to increase.
The increase in the 7-day average of the new corona cases compared to the previous week rises to a rarely high 45 percent.
After Saarland (714) and Bavaria (595), Hesse (550) and Rhineland-Palatinate (552) have also reached the incidence threshold of 500 as of today.
The incidence in Bavaria is again rising particularly sharply, namely by 93 points.
After the small Saarland, the Free State has the highest incidence among the federal states.
Coincidence or not: the incidences in Bavaria and especially in Munich started to rise sharply with the start of the Oktoberfest on September 17th.
What is striking: A strong folk festival effect has also been observed in other Bavarian cities and districts since August. In those cases, however, the incidence consistently only began to rise sharply after the end of the respective festival - and then for about eight to ten days.
In this respect (and because the Oktoberfest lasts until October 3rd), it would not be surprising if the numbers for Bavaria and Munich continued to rise for at least two weeks.
94 corona deaths were reported to the RKI yesterday, 12 fewer than a week ago.
In total, we are at 350 deceased in the current week.
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.
