The most important corona data for Germany
Incidence continues to rise – see how things are in your area
How high is the hospitalization rate, the incidence, how high is the vaccination rate? Where are the intensive care units full? Here is an overview of the most important data on the subject of Covid-19. –
Incidence: Which districts and cities are most affected?
The seven-day incidence indicates the frequency of new infections with the corona virus per 100,000 inhabitants over a period of seven days. The value is considered an important key figure. Many containment measures were linked to incidence thresholds during the course of the corona pandemic. The map shows the incidence values in German districts and cities. A specific age group can be selected and displayed using a filter.

Active cases, deceased, recovered
The overview below shows the estimated number of active cases of infection in Germany and per federal state. How does the value come about? The RKI publishes new data once a day. According to the institute, the active cases result “from the number of reported cases minus the deaths and the estimated number of people who have recovered”. In addition to the active cases, you can see the total number of confirmed infections, those who died from or with Corona and the estimated value of those who have recovered from the graphic.

Hospitalization Rate (Incidence)
The incidence records the hospitalized Covid-19 cases reported to the RKI per 100,000 inhabitants within a time window of seven days. According to the RKI, delays in reporting can lead to underestimations, also of the current incidences, since hospital admission may only take place days after the reporting date of an infection.
Utilization of intensive care beds
The map shows the percentage of occupied intensive care beds in the hospitals of a district or city. By clicking on a region, you can also see how large the proportion of corona patients is and how many of them are being ventilated.
Reproduction number R – how many people does an infected person infect?
The reproduction number R, also often referred to as the R value, is one of the key indicators for assessing the course of an infection wave. R indicates how many people an infected person infects on average in a certain period of time. The lower R is, the better:
If R is less than 1, an infected person infects less than another person on average – and the epidemic runs out.
If R is 1, the number of new infections is constant and linear. The curve does not (any longer) rise exponentially.
If R is greater than 1, an infected person infects more than one other person on average – the number of new infections every day is increasing.
Note: The R value is an estimate. According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), it is based on the assumed number of new Covid-19 cases. The R value is presented with a four-day moving average. Each value is averaged with the values of the three previous days. The estimated values for the number of new cases and the R estimate for earlier days may deviate from the information in earlier management reports because the overall trend is re-estimated every day based on the data currently available. In addition, the RKI publishes an average value for seven days.
