The corona numbers in Hamburg only know one direction: upwards.
The health authorities and the Robert Koch Institute are again reporting maximum values - 6532 new cases and a seven-day incidence of 1617.6.

Hamburg – The number of registered new corona infections in Hamburg and the seven-day incidence are increasing unabated.
The health authority gave the number of reported infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week on Friday as 1617.6.
This is the highest value ever measured.
On Thursday it was 1476.3, compared to 897.8 a week ago.
A total of 6532 new cases were added, also more than ever before.
That is 118 more than on Thursday and 2691 more than on Friday a week ago.
According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the number of people who have died from or in connection with Corona since the beginning of the pandemic has increased by 2 to 2059.
With the seven-day incidence, Hamburg is still well above the national average.
Based on a different calculation method, the RKI gave a seven-day incidence of 1221.9 for Hamburg on Friday.
The Hanseatic city is only just behind the previous leaders Bremen and Berlin.
The RKI gave a value of 706.3 for all of Germany.
Nationwide, 140,160 new cases were added - more than ever in one day.
According to the available data, at least 199,955 people have been infected in the Hanseatic city since February 2020.
According to the RKI estimate, 138,500 of them are considered recovered.
According to the register of the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (Divi), 67 Covid 19 patients were treated in the intensive care units of the Hamburg hospitals on Friday (as of 11.15 a.m.), seven more than the day before.

Nationwide, it rose from 3.56 on Thursday to 3.77 on Friday.
If limit values 3, 6 and 9 are exceeded, the federal states can impose stricter measures to combat the pandemic.

Accordingly, 78.6 percent have complete basic protection with the second syringe that is usually necessary.
47.0 percent of Hanseatic residents have received a booster vaccination so far.
