What is the second lowest post code

Corona numbers: Hamburg incidence value again just over 100

Status: 03.05.2021 12:15 p.m.

According to the social authorities, 253 new corona cases were registered in Hamburg on Tuesday. That's 43 new cases more than a week ago. The incidence value rises again above the 100 limit to 100.9.

According to the social authority, a total of 72,835 people in the Hanseatic city have tested positive for the corona virus since the beginning of the pandemic. According to estimates by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), around 64,200 people in Hamburg can now be considered recovered.

Incidence value rises to 100.9

The number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days rose from 98.6 to 100.9 within one day. A week ago the incidence value was 114.3. After the incidence value fell below the 100 mark for the first time on Monday, it is just above it again on Tuesday. The current measures are only expected to be relaxed if the incidence value is below 100 for five consecutive days. Sundays are not counted.

Using a different calculation basis, the RKI gave a seven-day incidence of 90 for Hamburg on Tuesday - the second lowest value in Germany after Schleswig-Holstein (57). As a yardstick for possible easing of the corona restrictions, the Hamburg Senate takes into account the higher incidence value calculated by the social authority.

Another death

According to the social authorities, 247 corona patients are being treated in the Hamburg hospitals as of Monday, 106 people are being cared for in intensive care units. According to the RKI, 1,504 people have died in connection with Covid 19 in the Hanseatic city since the beginning of the pandemic. That is one more death than was last reported.
