Lower Saxony: More than 13,000 new infections

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported 13,896 new infections in Lower Saxony this morning. The seven-day incidence, ie the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week, is now 708.1 – after 731.5 the day before.


RKI: Nationwide prevalence is currently 507.1

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has given the nationwide seven-day incidence in the morning of 507.1. The day before, the value was 522.7. However, the occurrence does not give a complete picture of the infection situation. Experts have for some time assumed that there will be a large number of cases that are not registered by RKI – due to overworked health authorities, and because not all infected people get a PCR test done. Only these count in the statistics. The health authorities in Germany have recently reported 97,010 new corona infections to RKI within a day.


Hamburg: seven-day incidence drops to 443.0

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) recently registered 1,212 new corona infections in Hamburg. The seven-day incidence is currently 443.0 – after 505.1 the day before.

Because Hamburg’s social authority stopped publishing corona data on a daily basis in early May, NDR now publishes the current figures from RKI in the corona ticker every day. The Hanseatic City Health Authority only provides an update on the seven-day incidence and hospital utilization once a week – on Tuesdays. These data and values ​​may differ from RKI’s.


Schleswig-Holstein: 5,506 new infections reported

The seven-day incidence of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants in Schleswig-Holstein is now 751.3 and thus slightly lower than the day before (763.6). 5,506 new infections were reported within one day. Yesterday there were 5,432 new infections.
