The number of new corona infections remains below the maximum with 7595 new cases – nevertheless the RKI speaks of an "accelerated increase". Political measures could take a week at the earliest.
According to the Robert Koch Institute, the health authorities in Germany reported 7595 new corona infections within 24 hours. The value remains just below the high of 7830 from Saturday, but is well above the 5132 new infections reported last Wednesday.
"Currently an accelerated increase in the number of transmissions can be observed in Germany," writes the RKI in its situation report on Tuesday. "It is therefore urgently appealed that the entire population should be committed to infection protection." The RKI also includes rules of distance and hygiene outdoors, indoor ventilation and, where necessary, mouth and nose covering.
