New RKI case numbers for Germany today: Incidence, new infections and deaths on 02/23/21
- New infections: According to the RKI, the current Corona numbers were included on Tuesday morning 3883 New infections within 24 hours. Yesterday, Monday, February 22nd, 4,369 new corona cases were registered in Germany. On Tuesday a week ago, February 16, 21, a total of 3856 new infections were reported within 24 hours.
- „Time online“Reported it 5491 There are new infections. The figures from Zeit Online are based on direct information from the districts. They are less affected by delayed reporting chains than the statistics of the Robert Koch Institute and can therefore deviate.
- Infection Record: Among the new infections registered within 24 hours, the highest value was reported on December 18, with 33,777 cases – but this included 3500 late reports.
- Infected: According to the RKI, since the beginning of the pandemic in Germany 2.394.811 registered positive cases. The actual total number, however, is likely to be significantly higher since many infections are not recognized.
- Tote: The RKI reported 415 new coronavirus-related deaths. This has been the case in Germany since the beginning of the pandemic 68.318 Corona deaths given. On Tuesday a week ago, the RKI reported 528 deaths within one day. According to “Zeit Online”, there were 271 new deaths related to the corona virus.
- Highest number of deaths: The highest level of 1244 new deaths in Germany within one day was reached on Thursday, January 14th, 21st.
- R value: In its current situation report, the RKI specifies a so-called seven-day R. This value relates to a longer period of time and is therefore less subject to daily fluctuations. It is now included 1.05 the day before it was 1.10. On Tuesday of the previous week, the value was 0.86. The value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If the value is below 1 for a long time, the infection rate subsides.
- 7 day incidence: The 7-day incidence, which is decisive for assessing the situation and for decisions relating to the lockdown, quantifies the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days. According to the RKI, the value is included on Tuesday 60,5 On Monday he cheated 61. The “Zeit” reports that the value is 63.1. The previous high was reached on Tuesday, December 22nd, at 197.6. Most federal states continue to record falling seven-day incidences, according to the RKI.
- The number of people with a first vaccination against Corona is included according to the RKI 3.312.351.
- The number of people who have the second dose Have received a vaccine against the coronavirus 1.576.478
- According to Zeit Online are current 3060 Covid-19 patients on the Intensive care unit.
RKI case numbers today: Dashboard provides the latest figures on corona infections

Reproduction number, new infections, incidence and Co .: The most important corona key figures explained
Since the beginning of the corona pandemic, case numbers have been published every day to trace the course. Here is an explanation of what numbers mean what.
Reproduction number (R value)
The reproduction number – or R value for short – describes how many people an infected person infects during their illness. If the number is above one, a disease is spreading further and further through the population. The further it moves away from one, the faster and more threatening the trend is. However, this is always only a general national assessment of the situation.
There are also certain inaccuracies due to reporting delays and other factors. According to estimates by the RKI, the value currently fluctuates around one in Germany. According to the experts there, this is already considered a success and indicates that countermeasures to reduce contact are working. These reduce the chance that an infected person will infect other people and thus reduce the R value. Otherwise it could be three or four.
The R-value alone does not necessarily say anything about the drama of the entire development. It only results from the combination with the number of daily or weekly new infections. The reason is simple: with the same R value, it makes a huge difference whether there are 50,000 infections a day or a few hundred. Theoretically, the dynamic of spread is the same, but in the case of the higher numbers, it puts a greater burden on the capacities of the health systems due to the sheer mass alone.
In Germany, the number of new infections every day is now between 12,000 and 30,000 cases. That is an extreme increase in a relatively short time. At the beginning of October, according to the RKI, the number of new cases reported daily was only between 1,000 and 4,000. In other European countries, the development is even more dramatic.
The so-called seven-day incidence is a key benchmark for assessing the infection dynamics in a certain area and deciding on countermeasures. In Germany, it is recorded at community or district level and expresses how many new infections per 100,000 inhabitants have been registered in the past seven days.
Behind this, however, are different regional trends. An incidence value of 50 was introduced in Germany as an essential threshold for the introduction of stricter containment measures, but this has now been significantly exceeded almost everywhere.
Heavy gradients and intensive care bed occupancy
Ultimately, the number of cases alone does not determine how well a country can cope with the pandemic. Rather, it is of decisive importance whether the health system has sufficient capacity to treat the sick. That is why experts and politicians are observing very closely how the number of severe courses and available treatment places are developing.
The former is primarily influenced by how the virus spreads within the risk groups, where severe courses are much more likely. The number of intensive care patients with life-threatening illnesses is examined particularly closely. Capacities in this area are always limited, if only with regard to the specialist staff.
The number is an important yardstick when deciding on containment measures for another reason: There is no unreported number. In contrast to the number of reports on infections, which are also influenced by test strategies, there is no “underreporting” of artificially ventilated intensive care patients in hospitals. However, there is a time delay of two weeks. This is how long it takes after an infection for severe disease to develop. The number of intensive care patients lags behind the infection dynamics.
