Further easing throughout SH
The state government announced on July 19 that it wanted to further relax the corona rules in view of the low number of infections – for example with the Contact restrictions. From July 26th, up to 25 people can meet inside and outside. In addition, there is no test obligation for indoor catering. In addition, there is no longer a limit of 1,250 participants for events.
10 corona patients in clinics
Currently, 10 people who tested positive for Corona are being treated in the country’s hospitals – that is one case fewer than the day before. 3 of the Covid patients are in intensive therapy (+/- 0), 3 have to be ventilated (+/- 0).
What these numbers say – and what not
The state government’s statistics show how many confirmed corona infections are known to the authorities in the country and were reported in the intended way. What the statistics cannot clearly show, let alone the current day, is the speed at which the virus is spreading. Because the number of people who have newly tested positive usually also includes post-reported cases from several days. There are delays in the reporting chain, especially around weekends and public holidays.
