According to the Robert Koch Institute *, there are currently 

21,062 active coronavirus cases

 in Germany.

These are distributed across the whole of

Germany

, but are most strongly represented in five federal states.

The seven-day incidence * is, according to the RKI on Monday, "in

Bavaria

and

Berlin

very clearly, in

Baden-Württemberg

,

Hamburg

and

North Rhine-Westphalia

well above the national average." A total of three of the 401 German rural and urban districts exceeded this currently the critical threshold of 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants.

The city of Munich, which was also heavily hit by Covid-19, is just below the mark at 49.3.

the incidence value as 70.9 on Monday, it jumped to 87.1 a day later.

Because of the significant increase in corona, the city tightened its pandemic requirements on Tuesday.

Only five people or people from two households are allowed to come together in public spaces.

In addition, it is again mandatory to wear a mask in class at secondary schools.

The regulations initially apply for two weeks, as reported by wa.de *.

 had already tightened the first corona requirements with immediate effect on Monday.

For example, private celebrations with a sociable character, such as special birthdays, weddings and anniversaries with 25 or more participants, are notifiable.

From 50 participants up to the upper limit of 150 participants, celebrations must be approved by the city.

Also, only a maximum of 150 spectators are allowed at sports events, a Sunday shopping was canceled.

The number of corona infections is still increasing in #Hamm.

Corona in Germany: Situation relaxed compared to neighboring countries

All in all, the situation in

Germany is

currently very difficult to assess.

On the one hand, the number of cases is rising again significantly, on the other hand, the

Federal Republic is

just as clearly better off than many other states.

In comparison with the nine German neighboring countries,

Germany

appears

to be managing

the

pandemic

properly.

This is shown by a look at the 14-day incidences in Europe compiled by the WHO.

After the three inglorious front runners

Andorra

(544 cases per 100,000 inhabitants),

Montenegro

(480) and Spain (216), two neighboring German countries, the Czech Republic and France, follow.

Germany comes to a value of 26 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and is ahead of eight of its nine neighboring countries.
