The 7-day incidence rate continues to ease, falling to 125.7

There are a couple of positive takeaways from the recent figures put out by RKI in the past week or so. For one, the 7-day incidence rate is seen falling from ~170 to 125.7 as of the latest update while daily cases are also showing signs of plateauing.

Secondly, there also seems to be signs of a peak in terms of virus patients requiring intensive care. As of yesterday, there were 4,768 (-70) virus patients requiring intensive care with there being 2,838 (12%) intensive care beds still available.

That said, the latter figure does suggest that medical capacity is still stretched rather thin for the time being - with daily deaths also still not coming down too quickly yet (but deaths are always lagging i.e. better infection rate will eventually bring deaths lower).
