The corona situation in Germany continues to ease. All federal states have an incidence of 25 – except for Baden-Württemberg.
After the incidences had been very different for a long time in the German federal states, they have converged nationwide in the past few weeks. In the meantime, almost all federal states have incidence values below 25 – only in Baden-Württemberg is the incidence higher: According to RKI data on Wednesday morning, the value was 27 infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days.
The trend is also falling in Baden-Württemberg
However, the trend is downwards here too and the 25 could soon also be undercut. On Monday the value of the seven-day incidence was still 28.1, on Sunday it was 29.4 and on Tuesday last week it was significantly higher at 45.1.
35 mark decisive for relaxation
In any case, the threshold of 35 is more important. The regional value is important for relaxing things like going to outdoor pools, outdoor dining and cultural events. This map shows the values in the individual districts and cities of Baden-Württemberg:
Risk factor mutants
The good Germany-wide development could be due to the warmer temperatures, the growing immune protection in the population, especially through vaccinations, and rapid tests for school, work and leisure.
Almost half of corona infections are caused by the more contagious virus variants. This emerges from a report by the RKI on the spread of the variants in Germany.
Virus mutants such as the Delta variant that first appeared in India remain a risk factor. So far, however, there has been no significant increase in this country. In Baden-Württemberg, too, the situation seems to be under control: According to Minister of Social Affairs Manfred Lucha (Greens), the number of Delta cases is “not yet in the three digits”.
The Heidenheim district currently has a particularly large number of corona diseases with the delta variant. 57 of the currently 157 active cases can be traced back to the mutant.
Kretschmann on the corona situation in BW
Baden-Württemberg’s Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Greens) is not completely concerned about the corona situation in the country. The situation is currently good, but “we are not over the mountain yet,” warned Kretschmann on Tuesday.
