Sunday marked increase does not necessarily mean that the infection spreads over the whole of Germany. Here there is generally low infection, writes RKI.
But among other things, in the land of north Rhine-Westphalia, there have been local outbreaks. It has given relatively many people infected, and it causes an increase in the kontakttallet.
- The continued development must be followed closely in the coming days, particularly to see if smittetilfældene increases outside of the places where there are outbreaks, writes RKI.
Coronasmitte is, among other things, found in persons in asylum centres, among workers in slaughterhouses, with seasonal workers in agriculture and in connection with religious events, and family gatherings.
Also in hospitals and nursing homes have reported outbreaks.
A contact number on 2,88 means that the 100 people who are infected with the virus, on average, rubs off 288 other people.
