Highest new infections since April: Germany’s corona hotspots are all in Bavaria

  • Berchtesgadener Land with highest incidence since mid-April
  • Above all South of Bavaria with many New infections
  • Hospital traffic light continue on green
  • Further Corona restrictions currently not planned

These top positions would certainly have been dispensed with in the Free State: Nine out of ten counties with the currently highest 7-day incidences in Germany are in Bavaria. The south of the Free State is particularly affected.

Berchtesgaden clearly exceeds the 400 mark

In the Berchtesgadener Land, the 7-day incidence even rose to 416.6, like that District Office notifies. For the first time since mid-April, a Bavarian district exceeded the value of 400 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in 7 days.

Overall, Bavaria is at the top of these statistics: the nine highest incidences nationwide in rural districts or urban districts come from the Free State. Behind the Berchtesgadener Land are the districts of Mühldorf am Inn with 399.2, Traunstein with 375.2 and Straubing-Bogen with 347.9. Ranks five to nine are the districts of Miesbach, Bad-Tölz-Wolfratshausen, Cham, as well as the city and district of Rosenheim. In the whole of Bavaria the incidence is now 141. This is the second highest value in Germany. Thuringia has the highest incidence with 172.2.

In Franconia, the 7-day incidence is highest in Schweinfurt. With a value of 201, however, the value is well below the highs in southern Bavaria.

Despite the high number of infections: quiet in hospitals

In the meantime, however, the incidence is no longer the most important value for the introduction of corona protective measures in Bavaria. Rather, this is the hospital traffic light, which according to the Bavarian Ministry of Health in the Free State remains on green. At the traffic light, it is evaluated how many Covid-19 patients come to the hospitals or even have to go to the intensive care units. At the end of the day, these values ​​were still well below the limits above which measures can take effect. Especially in Franconia, there are currently only a few people in intensive care units because of Covid-19.

However, the incidence figures give an impression of the development of the infection process. They are based on the report from the RKI from Friday morning and can still change afterwards.
