+++ 20:35 Higher Omigron Density: Events in Hamburg are increasing drastically +++
A month ago, there were fewer seven-day events in only three federal states than in Hamburg.

At the end of November, there were 233.7 new infections per 100,000 people in seven days, and now there are 333.3.

There are 41,556 new cases reported today in the federal states. The number of confirmed corona virus infections in Germany has risen to 7,082,037. However, the number of cases not registered due to holidays is considered significant. So it makes no sense to compare it with previous week’s numbers. The RKI estimates that the number of people who have recovered from the onset of the epidemic is 6,328,727. The death toll from the infection rose 385 to 111,345. An average of 267 deaths per day are currently reported. Currently 641,965 people are affected.

The number of registrations has dropped due to the public holiday

Fall event values ​​for Christmas and New Year do not necessarily reflect the actual infection rate. Fewer infections are reported during the holidays for a variety of reasons. On the one hand, fewer people usually go to the doctor, and some procedures may even be open. On the other hand, laboratories and health officials sometimes only work to a limited extent. Conclusion: The Number of reported cases Decreases, the number of unregistered cases is increasing, and the view of the corona situation is temporarily blurred.

The infection rate (7-day R value) is given by Robert Koch Institute (RKI) as 0.83 (previous day: 0.75). According to the DIVI Intensive Care Register, 19 of the 4010 Covid patients in Germany are currently being treated in intensive care, 2365 of whom have aggressive ventilation.
