A.On Saturday too, the Hessian health authorities reported more new corona cases to the Robert Koch Institute than a week ago. The seven-day incidence has also increased. She testifies well 173 new corona infections among 100,000 inhabitants recorded within a week. Seven days ago the value was 141. The federal average is 277. This is due to the vastly excessive incidences in Saxony and regions in southern Bavaria and Thuringia. Rising incidences are generally attracting more Covid patients to clinics.
The RKI reports new positive PCR tests for Hessen in 1959, following 1701 a week ago and 614 a month ago. Since the pandemic began in March of last year, almost 375,000 people in Hesse have officially been infected with a variant of the corona virus.

That is 0.12 percent of the country’s population.
Hospitalization incidence at a high level

Most recently, 214 corona patients were in intensive care units after 224 the day before and 635 in normal wards in Hesse, which is the status on Friday. The President of the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (Divi) speaks on Saturday of 210 occupied beds, 100 of which are invasively ventilated. However, it has also reported lower data than the country in the past few days. This is justified with different counting methods.

According to the RKI, it is 66.6 percent of the country’s population, after 66.2 percent a week ago. 4.8 percent received the booster vaccination.
Advance to epidemic situation
In view of the corona data, the three Greens health ministers from Hesse, Brandenburg and Baden-Württemberg are jointly calling for the epidemic situation to be extended to a national extent. You are opposing the plans of the possible future traffic light government, which the Greens are also negotiating.
“In view of the current infection dynamics and the burden on hospitals, which in some regions are already on the verge of absolute overload, the epidemic situation of national scope should be prolonged,” says a statement by Kai Klose (Hesse), Ursula Nonnemacher (Brandenburg ) and Manne Lucha (Baden-Württemberg), which is available to the German Press Agency. “This ensures that all the measures required by the experts can be implemented.”
