Corona Munich: Confusion about numbers - OB Reiter buttons up RKI



from September 18:

Munich - Chaos around the

corona numbers

in Munich *: The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and the State Office for Health (LGL) use

an old population as a basis

for calculating the

seven-day incidence


The basis is the value of the Federal Statistical Office from December 31, 2018 - 1.47 million.

In fact, as of July 31, 2020, the city is already reporting 1.56 million inhabitants - i.e. 90,000 more.

Corona numbers in Munich: This is the "real" seven-day incidence - OB Reiter rages


true seven-day incidence

 - it says the number of new cases reported per 100,000 population for the last seven days - would be lower than the 47.6 reported on Thursday.

If this value is over 50, there could be restrictions in public life.

A high number of new infections * was also reported on Thursday with 151 corona cases.

According to an LGL spokesman, an

update of the population is


But you can't say when.

It's not the only inconsistency: the RKI reported 324 new cases on Thursday - and suddenly the value reported by the Koch Institute rose from 34.0 to 47.6 overnight.

Mayor Dieter Reiter complains: "There must finally be clarity about the discrepancy in the numbers."

Covid-19 patients in Munich: The current status in the city's hospitals

While cases are skyrocketing, the coronavirus is currently not as serious a problem medically * as it was in the earlier course of the pandemic.

The last

death in Munich

was on August 10th.

It was the only person to have died in the past two months.

All of the other 222 coronavirus-related deaths occurred from March to mid-July.

At that time, around 7,100 infections were confirmed, now there are 10,311 (according to RKI 10,324).

Sorry, but it's right not to let fans into the Allianz Arena.

The number of infections in Munich has risen significantly again in the last few days.

We support OB Reiter: Caution is advised.

We must not take unnecessary risks

- Markus Söder (@Markus_Soeder) September 17, 2020

Nevertheless, there are currently few infected people who become seriously ill.

One reason: the average age of the newly reported cases has dropped significantly.

The Munich Clinic reports

consistently low treatment numbers


At the end of July, eleven

Covid 19 patients were


in the five locations


There are currently 15, four of them in the intensive care unit.

At the peak in mid-April, there were 200 sick people.

When asked, clinic spokesman Raphael Diecke said: "Our experts are assuming that the number of patients will increase slightly again."
