Corona in Germany – the incidence of hospitalization is increasing
The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days – the most important parameter for a possible tightening of the corona restrictions – is given by the RKI on Wednesday as 2.34 (Tuesday 2.13). 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.
