Delta variant hits northern Germany particularly hard

It is considered highly contagious and is spreading very quickly. Current figures from the Robert Koch Institute now show: Northern Germany is particularly affected.

Hamburg / Hanover / Bremen – The delta variant of the corona virus worries experts. Meanwhile, the mutant is on the advance worldwide. In countries like England, Spain, and Portugal, it made incidence soar again. Great Britain in particular shone with a successful vaccination campaign. Now the incidence is exploding there *.

In Germany, too, every second new infection can now be traced back to the mutant. According to Lothar Wieler, President of the Robert Koch Institute, the proportion of the Delta variant in new infections is already 36 percent in the third week of June. However: The data from the laboratory are already a few days old, so the true proportion must be estimated at around 50 percent.

In comparison, the delta share was 15 percent in the second week of June.

Delta variant spreads in the north: Hamburg, Bremen, Lower Saxony

Even if the real numbers are therefore likely to be higher: The current publication by the researchers shows the rapid increase in the delta variant in Germany – and it shows that the delta variant is spreading rapidly in the north *.

The Delta variant in Hamburg now accounts for 38.6 percent of new infections. In no other federal state is the proportion so high. About three weeks ago the value was still three percent, so it has more than tripled.

Similar rapid expansion in Bremen. At the end of May there were no known Delta cases in the Hanseatic city, but the percentage now shot up to 33.3 percent.

The corona mutant is also widespread in Lower Saxony *, the number of people infected with the delta variant of the corona virus has increased. According to the RKI, the proportion of new infections rose to 17 percent in mid-June. At the end of May it was 0.7 percent.

Falling number of cases despite delta variant

The number of cases is still falling in the north. Experts explain the declining seven-day incidence with the fact that the corona infections are significantly decreasing due to the alpha variant that has dominated up to now. * Kreiszeitung.de and 24hamburg.de are offered by IPPEN.MEDIA.
