Coronavirus situation in Germany – current figures


Status: 11/22/2021 11:27 a.m.

Which districts are currently particularly affected? What is the trend in the incidence value? How is the vaccination campaign going and what is the situation in the intensive care units? An overview with interactive coronavirus maps and graphics.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Robert Koch Institute for Germany has published figures on confirmed infections with the novel corona virus. Death data and daily estimates of the number of recovered patients were added later. The combination of these three values ​​gives the number of people currently infected. This calculation of active cases of infection is based on the cases confirmed in the laboratory and does not take into account the number of undetected infections, which can only be estimated.

How many new infections have there been in the past seven days?

Notes on the map:

  • In order to show the dynamic infection process in a more differentiated way, the existing scale has been extended upwards by two more colors, which allow a subdivision of the previous class with maximum values. Both new colors are used to illustrate differences within the map – one applies to incidence values ​​of 1,000 or more cases per 100,000 population within 7 days, the other for incidence values ​​between 800 and 1000. For 7-day incidence values ​​between 600 and 800, the color continues to be used the previous class used from 600 cases.
  • Due to the consequences of a cyber attack, the Ludwigslust-Parchim district is currently only providing limited data to the RKI. A current representation of the 7-day incidence is therefore not possible for the district at the moment.
  • Occasional cases of new infections are reported to the RKI without specifying the age group of the persons concerned. In rare cases it can be observed that no information on the age group is available for a large number of new infections in a district or a city. The consequence may then be that the 7-day incidence for the total population is higher than the values ​​given in all individual age groups.

How is the 7-day incidence developing nationwide and in the federal states?

Note on the graphic: The RKI updates the number of new infections and thus also the 7-day incidence derived therefrom on a daily basis – also retrospectively on the basis of late reports. As a result, the currently specified 7-day incidence values ​​for days in the past are usually higher than the values ​​published by the RKI on the corresponding day.

Notes on the cards: Every click on a federal state provides up-to-date figures on infections with the new type of coronavirus. The figures are based on the information from the Robert Koch Institute, which currently publishes case numbers once a day for all federal states (according to the RKI, the data is always 0.00 on the day in question). The number of recovered persons given by the RKI and the number of “currently infected” calculated with the help of this value is based on an RKI estimate: Accordingly, the RKI assumes that cases with a mild course of the disease and corresponding symptoms last 14 days. In cases that are treated in hospital or whose symptoms indicate a severe course of the disease, the RKI assumes an illness time of 28 days. In combination with the date of the onset of the illness or the reporting date, this results in an estimated date for the recovery of the infected. An explanation of the differences between the number of infections in Germany on this map (source: Robert Koch Institute) and on the world map (source: Johns Hopkins University) can be found here.
