In the live ticker, NDR.de will also inform you today – on Monday 10 October 2022 – about the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic for Lower Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Hamburg.
The essence in short:
- Seven-day incidence of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the north: 649.7 in Lower Saxony | 503.8 in Schleswig-Holstein | 219.0 in Hamburg
- RKI: Nationwide incidence at 598.1
Seven-day incidents also increased in the north
The data published today by the Robert Koch Institute also shows the seven-day incidence for the northern German states – and they are increasing there too. The value is currently given as 649.7 for Lower Saxony, 503.8 for Schleswig-Holstein and 219.0 for Hamburg. In comparison, according to the RKI, the incidence after German Unity Day a week ago was 376.3 in Lower Saxony, 296.7 in Schleswig-Holstein and 166.1 in Hamburg. New infections have not been reported, as usual only Tuesday after the weekends. The states of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Bremen will publish their current corona figures this afternoon.
RKI: nationwide seven-day incidence at 598.1
Early in the morning the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) published the current seven-day incidence for Germany: It is therefore 598.1 and therefore significantly higher than last Monday (471.1). Number of new infections – as is now the case – were not reported at the beginning of the week.
Note on current figures: The incidence values do not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. Experts assume a large number of cases are not registered by the RKI – mainly because not all infected people have a PCR test. However, only positive PCR tests are included in the official statistics. In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to a bias in individual daily values. In general, the number of new infections registered varies widely from week to weekday, as many states do not report them to the RKI, especially on weekends, and report their cases later in the week.
