The RKI is not publishing any new corona case numbers today due to the public holiday.
This is now the third day in a row. The need for late registration will be correspondingly high today and tomorrow.
The 7-day incidence is now 374 - still higher than a week ago.
The late summer relaxation in intensive care units in Germany seems to be over. The burden has already increased again, with an upward trend.
Within a week, the number of Covid 19 patients treated in intensive care has increased by 34 percent.
It was 1049 yesterday – and thus more than 1000 for the first time since August 19.
The reason for this is not least a significantly increased number of new consignments.
It is often stated that a significant proportion of the Covid intensive care patients were not actually admitted because of a corona infection, but only with the virus.
However, it is also true that two stress indicators also point to increasing stress.
The number of free intensive care beds has recently fallen significantly. The 7-day average is still at 2730.
So far this year, this value has only been lower for a short time at the peak of the summer wave.
In addition, the number of intensive care units that state in the daily Divi query that their operating situation is “restricted” is increasing; the number is now again above the previous year's level, and the trend is rising.
In the survey published on Monday, 35 percent of the intensive care units stated that their situation was “limited”.
Another 24 percent described themselves as “partially restricted”.
