Virus reproduction rate relatively low

by Thorsten Koch

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the coronavirus reproduction number “R” remains situated below the critical threshold of 1.0. The new “7-day R” is currently at 0.88, said the RKI.

In future, the institute will publish this new “7-day-R”. The value represents a better compensation for fluctuations, the RKI explained.

The reproduction number was an essential criterion for relaxing contact restrictions. There are currently 172,239 confirmed Covid-19 cases within the country.
