When you look at the RKI warning card, North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) now lights up almost continuously in red.

Only one district is no longer a risk area.

  • North Rhine-Westphalia is still the federal state most severely affected by Corona.

  • Only one district does not yet count as a risk area.

  • Here you will find the basic facts about the coronavirus *.

    You can also see the current number of cases in Germany as a map.

  • This news ticker is updated regularly.

Update from October 27, 2020, 9:40 a.m.:

The

infection process

in

NRW

continues to worsen on Tuesday.

The

Robert Koch Institute

reported on Tuesday morning for the most populous state 3,678

new infections

within 24 hours.

This means that

114,194 infections have been registered in North

Rhine-Westphalia since the beginning of the

coronavirus pandemic

.

So far, 2031 people have died as a result of

Covid-19

.

The look at

7-day incidences

in

North Rhine-Westphalia

is particularly worrying

.

A value of 116.83 is given for the entire state.

Looking at the individual districts, the Soest district has

the lowest value

with 40.8

infections

per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days.

Soest is also the only district in North Rhine-Westphalia that

remains

below the

risk area threshold

of 50.

The rest of the federal state is thus a risk area.

The sad leader is the district of Solingen, where 206

infections

per 100,000 inhabitants were registered

in the last seven days

.

Corona in NRW: The situation is coming to a head - a city reaches an incidence of 554

Update from October 26, 2020, 7:22 p.m

.:

North Rhine-Westphalia

is still badly affected by the pandemic.

The

Corona map of the Robert Koch Institute

is colored deep red accordingly and many circles are considered a risk area (see first report) - including the

Aachen city region

.

According to official information from the city region, the seven-day incidence on site is now 199 (data as of October 26, 2:45 p.m.).

This number is very surprising, because in the report of the Robert Koch Institute the

city ​​region of Aachen is

still listed with a value of 95.5 (data status: October 26th, midnight).

The situation in the district in

Baesweiler

seems to be most precarious

.

The

city ​​region states the

incidence

for the city of around 27,000 inhabitants with 554 cases per 100,000 inhabitants - this would make

Baesweiler the

undisputed leader in Germany-wide comparison.

A spokesman for the urban region pointed out, however, that the infection number of 554 is a calculated quantity.

There are currently 144 active corona infections there. 

The

RKI

only records the data of the 401 German urban and rural districts; individual locations are usually not published.

Nevertheless, the situation in

Baesweiler is

tense.

In the meantime, a

strict catalog of measures.

The Muslim communities, for example, suspended Friday prayers until October 31.

Corona in North Rhine-Westphalia: lawsuit from innkeepers thrown out

Update from October 26, 2020, 4:39 p.m.:

The lawsuit by 19 restaurateurs against the Corona Protection Ordinance in North Rhine-Westphalia was rejected.

The

curfew for risk areas

in North Rhine-Westphalia thus remains.

As the North Rhine-Westphalian Higher Administrative Court decided on Monday in Münster, the protection ordinance serves the "legitimate purpose" of slowing down the spread of the corona virus.

(Ref. 13 B 1581 / 20.NE)

Accordingly, restaurants in areas where the

seven-day incidence is higher than 50

must close between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.

In addition, the sale of alcohol is prohibited at these times.

According to the reasoning of the court, both contribute to reducing contacts.

It is true that the measures interfered "in a very considerable way" with the freedom of occupation of innkeepers.

It is to be feared, however, that the infection process will develop "dangerous dynamics" without effective countermeasures, which will lead the health system beyond the limits of its capacity.

Corona in NRW: Carnival novelty for Cologne triumvirate

Update from October 26, 2020, 3:37 p.m.:

The corona pandemic also has an

impact

on the

Cologne carnival

.

Not only that big events have to be canceled as expected,

there is also a novelty

for the so-called

“Cologne triumvirate”

: For the first time, the triumvirate of prince, farmer and virgin will

rule

the city for

two terms

.

This was announced by Christoph Kuckelkorn, President of the Cologne Carnival Festival Committee, on Monday.

Many of the highlights of the upcoming session - such as the Rose Monday procession - could not take place like this, he explained.

Therefore, the designated triumvirate was offered to go "into extension".

According to the festival committee, this is the first time in the history of the Cologne Carnival.

Corona hotspot NRW: State almost completely red - only three districts no risk area

Cologne - The Robert Koch Institute * reports a seven-day incidence * of 104.80 for

North Rhine-Westphalia

on Monday morning

.

Only Berlin currently has a higher value of 122.61 among Germany's federal states.

And that with significantly fewer residents.

In terms of the absolute number of cases, NRW continues to lead the way with 110,516 corona cases.

The spread of the novel

coronavirus Sars-CoV-2

in Germany seems to be particularly difficult to slow down in the state of Prime Minister Armin Laschet.

In the past 24 hours, 2757 new infections were reported by the health authorities.

And that on a Sunday, where experience has shown that the number of cases is lower, also because fewer tests are carried out on weekends.

Corona in NRW: Almost all regions are now risk area - Cologne with worrying development

The districts of Düren, where the incidence is now 200.7, Solingen (200.3) and Duisburg (188.1) are particularly affected in North Rhine-Westphalia.


Also in

Cologne

is a

worrying development

to watch in case numbers.

There the incidence has now climbed to a value of 177.7.

That means: 177.7 cases were recorded there within a week per 100,000 inhabitants.

The value had already skyrocketed in the two days before - from 136.8 on Saturday to 152.5 on Sunday.

NRW: These ten regions have the highest incidence values

  • District of Düren 200.7 Solingen 200.3 Duisburg 188.1 Cologne 177.7 Remscheid 176.9 Herne 154.7 Düsseldorf 136.2 Dortmund 134.6 Wuppertal 134.3 Rheinisch-Bergischer-Kreis 125.7

As in the rest of Germany, stricter corona measures come into force in NRW with increased seven-day incidences.

The NRW Ministry of Health has published details of when which rules apply locally on its Twitter page.

Corona rules on site


State-wide requirements for the municipalities - depending on the level of risk


What applies from when?


7-day incidence below 35


7-day incidence between 35 and 50


7-day incidence above 50

Not only in Germany are the numbers rising rapidly again.

The so-called second wave * is causing problems for countries all over the world.

New corona infections are also increasing rapidly in Europe and our neighboring country Austria.
