Corona virus: The omicron wave is ebbing – Munich district

The number of infections in the district of Munich has been falling continuously for a few days, but there are still delays in reporting the number of cases. The Munich district office corrected the seven-day incidence reported on Tuesday morning from initially 1213.4 to 1341.5. In this respect, the number of cases of 1149.3 reported for Wednesday is likely to be too low and will be corrected on Thursday. Irrespective of this, however, the numbers document a decline in new infections. A week ago, 1,527.4 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were counted in the district. This indicates that the omicron wave, which peaked in early February with almost 2,000 infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week, is waning. According to the health department, 6,679 people in the district are currently infected with the corona virus. A total of 65,679 residents have been infected since the outbreak of the pandemic, which corresponds to around 18.6 percent of the population. 280,000 people were fully vaccinated in the district, which would correspond to about 78 percent of the total population.
