Differences due to Omicron in the North

The RKI reported that the number of COVID-19 infections in seven days per 100,000. inhabitants is 407.5 on Wednesday. A day earlier it was 387.9, 258.6 a week before, and 390.9 a month before.

In terms of regions, incidence rates vary considerably. The federal state of Bremen continues to record the highest value at 1,296.8. Berlin comes second (856.4). The incidence of more than 500 is also recorded in Schleswig-Holstein (633.0) and Hamburg (568.9), in other federal states this indicator is below 500.

The lowest seven-day incidence rate per one hundred thousand inhabitants is currently in Saxony (239.5) – a federal state that until recently was the leader in this statistics. It is suspected that these differences are related on the one hand to an earlier spread of the Omikron variant in the north of the country and, on the other hand, to a higher risk of contamination in large cities.
