If the number of infections rose significantly in a district, immediate action had to be taken - before the incidence value exceeded the threshold of 50 new infections within seven days per 100,000 inhabitants.

According to the RKI, at least 348,557 people in Germany have been proven to have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus since the beginning of the Corona crisis. The number of deaths in connection with a corona infection was therefore 9734. That was 24 more than on Thursday. According to estimates by the RKI, there are around 287,600 recovered.

According to a survey by the editorial network Germany (RND) among the education ministries of the federal states, an average of 98 percent of all students were able to take part in face-to-face classes by the start of the autumn holidays.
