"Incidence collapse in Berlin" - The current corona numbers explained for you

60,411 corona cases were reported to the RKI yesterday.

In the previous week comparison, there is a minus of five percent.

This rather small decline is somewhat understated, since the public holiday countries of Bavaria and Saarland went on reporting strikes on Monday last week.

The 7-day incidence increases slightly, from 282 to 289.

Here, however, the holiday of last week reverberates in Bavaria and Saarland.

In contrast, the incidence is declining in eleven of the 16 federal states.

In a week-on-week comparison, all federal states are in the red, with the exception of the two holiday states.

Among the 412 urban and rural districts in Germany, not a single one has an incidence of more than 1000.

This is the first time since June 13th.

A month ago today, 71 districts were still in the four-digit range.

The summer wave in Berlin reached its peak on July 6th – which, coincidentally or not, was also the last day of school before the summer holidays in the capital.

Since then, the incidence has fallen sharply, in the past seven days alone more than in any other federal state, namely by 120 points.

With the reports from yesterday - the first day of school after the holidays - there is now an incidence of 173.

This is the second lowest value this year:

The incidence in Berlin was only lower on a single day in 2022, namely on June 7th, immediately before the start of the summer wave.

Berlin now has the lowest incidence among all federal states. So far, only Thuringia (186) has been below 200 and since today also Baden-Württemberg (199.6).

The collapse in incidence extends to the entire urban area. Ten of the twelve Berlin districts have an incidence below 200.

And just three that were known in the past for incidence outliers are even below 150, namely Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, Mitte and Neukölln.

There is no obvious reason for the particularly sharp decline in the incidence in the capital.

146 corona deaths were reported to the RKI in the past week, six more than a week ago.

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? Olaf Gersemann explains and evaluates the current figures briefly and concisely - every morning anew.
