The 7-day incidence rate falls further to 107.8

The spread of infections in Germany is seen to be declining and that is a positive signal over the past two weeks, which should eventually see daily cases and deaths come lower. The drop in the 7-day incidence rate to 107.8 is the lowest in over a month.
