78,698 corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday.
In the previous week comparison, there is a strong minus of 23 percent.
This is now the 14th consecutive business day of a week-on-week decline.
The 7-day average of new cases is still just over 50,000.
This is the lowest level since June 13.
The 7-day incidence continues to fall, from 389 to 382.
It falls in 12 of the 16 federal states.
The four exceptions are Hamburg, NRW, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein.
As in other federal states, the upward trend in the number of cases in NRW ended almost exactly with the start of the summer holidays.
NRW, which started the holidays first, starts the new school year this Wednesday.
As in all 16 federal states, the incidence in NRW is below the level of the previous week.
But it is NRW as well as Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (where school starts next Monday) that have had the smallest minus for days.
NRW's incidence is now above the national average again, after being ranked well below it for weeks.
It is questionable whether the incidence in NRW will only decrease more slowly with the return to everyday school and work life - or whether there is even a trend reversal here.
170 corona deaths were reported to the RKI yesterday, one less than a week ago.
