On Monday morning (10 May 2021), the value in the RKI dashboard was given as 100.8. On Friday (98.6) and Saturday (97.0), the values had slipped below the 100 mark for the first time in a long time.
The figure indicates how many new Corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants have been recorded in the past seven days. Only if the value remains below 100 for five consecutive days, stricter measures will be relaxed again according to the federal emergency brake. The Senate's situation report on the latest Corona figures was expected to be released later this morning. There have been discrepancies in some figures from the RKI dashboard in recent days. In Germany, the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants reported within seven days was 119.1 overall on Monday morning, according to the RKI (previous day: 118.6; previous week: 146.9).
