Düsseldorf (dpa/lnw) - The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the seven-day incidence of corona infections in North Rhine-Westphalia as 395.9 on Thursday. This emerged from the RKI dashboard. On Wednesday the value for NRW was 346.7. A week ago, the number of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week in NRW was 338.6.
The health authorities in North Rhine-Westphalia recently reported 24,652 Corona new infections and 27 new deaths within a day. Comparisons of the data are also only possible here to a limited extent because of the test behavior, late registrations and transmission problems. In general, the number of registered new infections and deaths varies significantly from weekday to weekday, since many federal states do not transmit them to the RKI, especially at weekends, and report their cases later in the week.
