46,495 Corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday.
That's six percent less than a week ago.
For the 35th time in a row, there is a decline on a working day in the week-on-week comparison.
The downward trend in the number of cases is still intact.
The 7-day moving average falls to 28,411, the lowest since June 7th.
In absolute numbers there is a slowdown in the decline, but not in percentage terms: compared to the previous week, the 7-day average is still in double digits in the red.
The nationwide 7-day incidence falls from 219 to 217.
In six of the 16 federal states, however, the incidence is increasing. And with Thuringia there is a second federal state next to Rhineland-Palatinate, which is also in the plus in the previous week comparison.
394 of the 412 urban and rural districts - i.e. 96% - have an incidence in the narrow range of between 200 and 400 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 7 days.
The range is also relatively small when comparing the federal states. It ranges from 132 (Hamburg) to 282 (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania), which amounts to 150 points.
For comparison: a month ago today the range was 256 points, today two months ago it was even 666 points.
Even three months ago today, at the beginning of the summer wave, the range was larger at 208 points.
The background: local and regional peak values are becoming rarer.
As long as there are no reporting breakdowns or strikes, there has hardly been a circle with the incidence below 100.
In contrast to 2020 and 2021, there was no widespread decline this summer, except for very low incidences. And he's not in sight for the time being.
120 corona deaths were reported to the RKI yesterday, 61 fewer than a week ago.
