The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported 13,896 new infections in Lower Saxony in the morning. The seven-day infection rate, the number of new infections per 100,000 population in one week, is now 708.1 – up from 731.5 the day before.
RKI: The nationwide infection rate is currently 507.1
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the seven day nationwide occurrence in the morning at 507.1. The value the previous day was 522.7. However, the infection does not provide a complete picture of the infection status. Experts have been hypothesizing for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to the stress of health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test. Only these count in the stats. Germany’s health authorities recently reported 97,010 new coronavirus infections in the RKI in one day.

Since the social authority in Hamburg stopped publishing Corona data on a daily basis at the beginning of May, the NDR now publishes the current figures from the RKI in the Corona Index every day. The Hanseatic City Health Authority only gives an update on the occurrence of seven days and hospital use once a week – on Tuesdays. These data and values may differ from those of RKI.
Schleswig-Holstein: 5,506 new infections were reported
The seven-day incidence of novel coronavirus infection per 100,000 inhabitants in Schleswig-Holstein is now 751.3 and thus slightly lower than the previous day (763.6). 5,506 new infections were reported within one day. Yesterday, 5,432 new infections were recorded.
