Düsseldorf / Berlin – The corona incidence in North Rhine-Westphalia has risen to almost 100. According to the figures from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Sunday, the most populous federal state with its high infection rate is at the top of the negative rankings.
The number of reported cases per 100,000 inhabitants within 7 days reached 99.2, according to the RKI figures. A week ago the value in the country was 54.4. The national average on Sunday was 54.5.
According to the RKI, the city-state of Berlin was the country with the second highest value with 67.3. Other large states such as Baden-Württemberg (46.6) and Bavaria (41.1) are below the national average.
The incidence, which has long been the basis for many corona restrictions, is now playing a different role in the pandemic than it used to be. In the new Corona Protection Ordinance that has been in force in North Rhine-Westphalia since Friday, a seven-day incidence of 35 remains the only code from which the “3G rules” (vaccinated, recovered or tested) apply to visits to indoor restaurants, for example .
Within one day, 3124 corona infections were added in North Rhine-Westphalia on Sunday. Throughout Germany, the RKI was notified of 7,050 new corona infections (as of 5:20 a.m.) within one day. dpa
