Dhe second wave of Corona-Pandemic rolls across Europe. After the number of cases fell to a relatively low level in many countries over the summer, the virus has been spreading rapidly again since September. It is not only in Germany that temporary easing has been lifted and new measures taken in the fight against the pandemic. But the line between the restrictions necessary to protect against infection and as much freedom as possible remains narrow.
With our graphics and tables, we give you an overview of the most important key figures and developments. Case numbers, positive rate of the corona tests and occupancy of intensive care beds – you will find all this here at a glance and in clear graphics for you. In addition, we monitor the Cases of infection in the counties, which was recently an important criterion in the assessment of the infection rate in the individual regions. The so-called incidence value is given here, i.e. the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within the past seven days.
The important benchmark continues to be Reproduction number – it indicates how many other people an infected person infects on average. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) repeatedly emphasized. We represent the development of the number over time, Read more about how reliable it is here.
Worldwide case numbers
We source the global data on infections, recoveries and deaths from the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering. There, figures from the various national and international health authorities are compiled and continuously updated.
Case numbers in the German federal states
The number of cases in the German federal states and districts are published once a day by the Robert Koch Institute. Only cases that were reported to the institute via the reporting channel or official sources are listed here. Since the situation is very dynamic, there may be discrepancies between the data from the Robert Koch Institute and information provided by other bodies, such as the federal states concerned.
