"150,000 corona deaths in Germany" - The current corona numbers explained for you

As always in the past few weeks, the federal states or RKI did not publish any corona numbers at the weekend.

In the past week, the number of new cases aged 60 and over in particular has risen sharply, by 72 percent. Here we are almost back to the level that was reached at the peak of the summer wave.

The often invoked targeted protection of vulnerable groups does not seem to be working properly in the third autumn wave either.

606 corona deaths were reported to the RKI in the past week.

Compared to the previous week, there is an increase of 15 percent.

Further increases are to be expected, especially since the number of Covid 19 patients in intensive care units is increasing significantly.

Within a week, the number has climbed by almost 37 percent to 996.

According to the RKI, the number of corona deaths has risen to more than 150,000 in the past week, namely 150,064. That is about 5.8 percent of the deaths since the pandemic began.

Of course, it is questionable how many of them really died from and how many with the virus.

According to a study by the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) published in June, 46 percent of those infected with omicron who died there died of corona and 82 percent or more of those infected with delta, alpha or wild type.

Nationwide, 38,000 of the 150,000 have died in the current year, they are likely to have been almost exclusively infected with omicron.

Assuming now that the UKE results can be applied to Germany as a whole.

At least the following should have died of Corona:

46% x 38.000 82% x 112.000

= 17,480 91,840

= 109,320.

109,000 deaths would therefore be directly attributable to Corona, 17,500 of them in the current year.

During the 2020 and 2021 pandemic, 4.9 percent of those who died are likely to have died of Covid 19 disease. In 2022, this share will be 2.4 percent.

After the usual official reporting strikes at the weekend, we start the new week with an incidence of 471.

At the beginning of last week we were still at 294.

Every day we hear the new Corona case numbers. But what do they mean, where are we in the pandemic and what is the trend? Laurin Meyer briefly and concisely explains and evaluates the current figures – every morning.
