Regional differences are great
Will the corona lockdown keep the number of infections and deaths falling? From an incidence of no more than 35, retailers, museums and galleries as well as businesses with body-related services are allowed to reopen. The contact restrictions could also according to the resolution proposed by the federal and state governments for the corona summit.
But even in regions where the incidence falls below 100, you can look forward to the first easing. There you can at least go to shops or museums with a fixed appointment. As soon as the incidence value rises above 100 in a region, a corona emergency brake is also planned. People then have to go back to the tough lockdown rules. You can see how the infection situation is currently developing in your region using our interactive map.
What exactly does the seven-day incidence mean?
The seven-day incidence is nothing more than the number of new infections reported over the past seven days. While up to now the main focus was on whether cities or districts exceeded the incidence of 50, a further incidence value has now been added: a region is considered a “super hotspot” with an incidence of more than 200 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants. If anything goes beyond this value, stricter measures should be introduced within a week.

200 incidence value shows “super hotspots”
After most German regions had hardly any new infections in the summer months, the number of cases of infection rose rapidly again in autumn and winter. Many experts suspect that the reason for this was initially holiday returnees and local outbreaks through private celebrations. But how is it currently?
Cities and counties in which the number of current cases has fallen near zero or to zero are green colored.
A gray Staining corresponds to a seven-day incidence value of less than 25.
The regions that have seen over 25 new coronavirus cases in the past seven days appear braun.
They appear in over 35 new cases Orange.
Circles in which the number of current new infections is above the upper limit of 50 are in the graphic bright red deposited. Up to an incidence of 50, the health authorities are well able to ensure the follow-up of the contacts. From an incidence of 50, a region is considered a corona risk area.
Rot are the circles when the incidence value is above 100.
The incidence limit of 200 was only added later. If a circle is above this value, it is in on the map Dark red colored.

* The interactive map is based on the number of cases published by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) at midnight, including the incidence calculation. The graphic is updated daily. The starting point for calculating the number of currently infected people is the number of laboratory-confirmed cases of infection.
The data reflect the current situation picture as it is presented to the authorities in Germany. The actual number of cases of infection (i.e. proven infections plus the number of unreported cases) will only be recorded at a later date.
