Update, January 14, 8:01 p.m

.: At the end of the week, there was a storm in Bavaria’s district offices. The reason: the new corona quarantine rules that will apply from Saturday, January 15th. We try to get some order out of the confusion and explain who still has to be quarantined or isolated and to whom the various exceptions apply.

First report, Munich, January 14, 7:14 a.m.:

- The seven-day incidence * in Germany reached a new high on Friday and is now 470.6.

The numbers have also risen again in the Free State.

In Bavaria, the incidence jumped from 420.2 on Thursday to 473.1 on Friday, according to figures from the Robert Koch Institute from 3.20 a.m.

For the first time in several weeks, Bavaria has overtaken the overall incidence in the Federal Republic, after the numbers had previously declined significantly.

More and more cities and counties are now crossing the “pink alert” threshold again, reporting an incidence of over 500.

Corona in Bavaria Incidence is increasing sharply - Munich among the front runners

The district of Erding in Upper Bavaria reported the highest incidence * in Bavaria on Friday with 753.8, closely followed by the Swabian district of Lindau with 748. The state capital Munich * follows in third place.

The incidence there on Friday was 718.2.

The district of Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz reports the lowest incidence in Bavaria with 112.4.

It is also the lowest incidence value in Germany.

At the same time, the number of intensive care patients infected with Covid-19 in Bavaria is falling.

Their number was 457 on Thursday and thus 31 lower than on Wednesday.

Corona situation in the Free State: Operations still need to be postponed

Nevertheless, due to the increasing number of corona infections, dozens of hospitals in Bavaria have to suspend treatments that can be postponed from a medical point of view.

Corresponding instructions apply in six of the seven Bavarian administrative districts.

This should ensure the inpatient care of emergencies and Covid 19 patients, it said.

Medically urgent interventions such as heart or tumor operations are still possible.

Corona rules in Bavaria: the state government remains on a defensive course

At a press conference on Tuesday, the Bavarian state government announced that the corona regulations in the fight against the omicron wave would be less strict than decided at the federal-state conference.

In gastronomy, for example, the 2G rule still applies instead of 2G Plus.

Health Minister Klaus Holetschek also announced on Thursday that he intended to suspend the hotspot regulation for the time being, according to which a regional lockdown is planned from an incidence of 1000.
