NAfter two violent eruptions, there are now very few confirmed new coronavirus infections in Hesse: In the night from Sunday to Monday, eight new cases were reported between the border with Lower Saxony and the southern Odenwald, such as the Ministry of Social Affairs and Robert, who was responsible for the fight against epidemics -Koch-Institut (RKI) report. The last time there were similarly low numbers in the first third of March, i.e. at the beginning of the pandemic in this federal state.

At the same time, there was no further casualty related to the pandemic. In return, the number of patients who are considered to have recovered from their infection has increased by around 100 to 8,500. For every Corona victim there are 18.5 recovered. This value is stable.
With regard to the important brand 50 in the so-called seven-day incidence, all independent cities and counties are still on the safe side. This incidence relates to the new cases per 100,000 inhabitants within a week. If the value of 50 is exceeded, the respective health department could have the Corona rules relaxed. For the Lahn-Dill-Kreis and Vogelsberg, the state has a value of zero. Five circles come to a one. The Main-Taunus-Kreis is the leader in this negative list with the value 13.
The increase in new infections is less than 0.1 percent. It is thus as low as it has not been since the beginning of March. At that time, the health authorities in Hesse reported Covid 19 cases for the first time. The number of confirmed infections since the beginning of March is 9770. 460 corona victims are known to date.
In the past few days, two large outbreaks of coronavirus in Rhein-Main had clouded the positive development. On the one hand, the Frankfurt Health Office reported more than 70 cases in a refugee home. At the weekend, 107 new infections among members of a Baptist church became known. The infected live not only in Frankfurt, where the community is located, but also come from surrounding counties.
With regard to the number of people who have recovered, the following should be noted: How the RKI of the F.A.Z. reported, it does not officially collect data on the number of those recovered. The survey was also not provided for by law. “However, at least in the cases in which most of the information was ascertained, had no severe symptoms and were not admitted to a hospital, it can be assumed that they will have recovered after 14 days at the latest,” says Berlin on Seat of the institute. The RKI only estimates the number of those recovered.
As the Hessian Ministry of Social Affairs reported last week, 572 Covid-19 patients were in Hessian clinics at the time. Accordingly, 110 of them had to be ventilated. 9841 beds were free. The same was true for 853 beds with ventilators, according to the ministry. Because there is no emergency in this regard either, an inexpensive Marburg invention is currently not being used.
The RKI takes into account those cases that were transmitted on the respective day at midnight. “For the presentation of the newly transmitted cases per day, the reporting date is used – the date on which the local health authority became aware of the case and recorded it electronically,” says the website of the institute. It could take a few days between the notification by the doctors and laboratories to the health authority and the transmission of the cases to the responsible state authorities and the RKI. In such cases there is talk of late reporting.
