Germany’s nationwide seven-day incidence rate of coronavirus infections has fallen again compared with the previous day.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for disease control reported 375 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants over a seven-day period on Tuesday, down from 389.2 on Monday.

A week ago, the nationwide incidence rate stood at 432.2.

Health authorities in Germany reported 30,823 new COVID-19 infections to the RKI within one day.

Exactly one week ago, there were 36,059 cases.

According to the new data, 473 deaths were recorded in Germany within 24 hours.

A week ago, there were 399 deaths.

The RKI counted 6,562,429 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.

The actual total number is likely to be much higher, as many infections are not detected. (dpa/NAN
