Germany reports 21,953 new coronavirus cases, 250 deaths in latest update today

The 7-day incidence rate falls further to 129.1

The virus situation is showing signs of plateauing in Germany and the positive news is that the 7-day incidence rate is continuously falling over the past week or so. Total active cases is seen easing slightly to ~282,100 as of the update today.
The lower infection rate is definitely welcome and could be a signal that vaccinations are starting to take effect, but there is still some ways to go.
Medical capacity remains stretched, as there were 4,838 (-117) virus patients requiring intensive care as of yesterday with there being just 2,711 (11%) intensive care beds still available. The latter figure holds some added significance in that sense.
