130,074 Corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday.
Compared to the previous week, there is another decline of five percent.
The 7-day average of the new cases is still clearly in the negative range at just under minus 15 percent compared to the previous week.
The nationwide 7-day incidence falls again after rising yesterday, from 688 to 671.
It is increasing in only three of the 16 federal states.
The most significant increases are in the two federal states that returned from the autumn holidays this week: NRW and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. In both countries, the incidence has already increased yesterday.
NRW is also the only federal state in which the incidence is only slightly below the level of the previous week.
Holiday effects (and end-of-holiday effects) come about because fewer/more positive PCR tests are reported by pupils (and parents!) at the beginning/end of school holidays.
It is unclear to what extent this can be attributed to a decrease/increase in the real incidence of infection or only to a lower/higher test intensity.
Sometimes the effects are quite obvious, as was the case recently at the beginning of the summer holidays.
In times of greatly relaxed test regimes in schools and workplaces, a significant weakening of the effects of holidays and the end of holidays can actually be expected.
248 corona deaths were reported to the RKI yesterday - more than on any day since April 27th.
Continuing the rise from a heavily reduced level, the 7-day moving average hits 137 today, its highest level since May 17th.
