The RKI or the federal states did not provide any corona numbers over the past weekend either.
Germany starts the new week with a 7-day incidence of 404.
A week ago we were still at 584.
The incidence is declining in all 16 federal states.
7-day average and active cases are very clearly in the red compared to the previous week.
1062 corona deaths were reported last week, just as many as the week before.
Most recently, the weekly number of deaths in early May was in the four-digit range.
The number of corona cases in intensive care units was 1580 yesterday.
It was nine percent lower than a week earlier and 18 percent lower than a year ago.
126 corona cases were admitted to intensive care units yesterday, which is the lowest daily value in exactly four weeks.
The strong increase in the number of corona cases in September and October was driven by a particularly large number of reports from the vulnerable age group 60.
The proportion of seniors in all reported cases was at times more than 31 percent in October - after it had been 7 to 18 percent in the spring waves of infection.
Last week, however, the number of cases over 60 fell significantly for the second time in a row, by 32 percent.
That the minus is so strong is quite surprising.
Because in its most recent weekly report, the RKI noted that the number of so-called outbreaks in old people's and nursing homes "continued to increase compared to the previous week".
