Corona: Hospitalization incidence and deaths are increasing slightly
The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Wednesday at 1.88 (Tuesday: 1.86). A weekly or monthly comparison is not possible due to the high number of late registrations. A nationwide threshold value from when the situation can be viewed critically is not provided for the incidence of hospitalization, among other things because of large regional differences. The previous high was around 15.5 around Christmas time.
