RKI reports corona incidence for Saxony of 136.9

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the seven-day incidence in Saxony fell to 136.9 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week on Wednesday. The day before, it had been at 148.6. This is evident from the figures of the RKI dashboard. Nationwide, the reading was 281.8 on Wednesday.

However, experts assume that many corona cases are not recorded because positive rapid tests are not always followed by a PCR test. Only these are counted in the statistics. In addition, not all health authorities report their data up-to-date on a daily basis, especially on weekends and at the beginning of the week there may be a delay.

Within Saxony, the infection process is quite different. The highest incidence value on Wednesday was the city of Leipzig with 198.5. The district with the lowest value was the Erzgebirgskreis with 81.3. 1351 new infections and 6 deaths were registered throughout Saxony. Since the beginning of the pandemic, it has been proven that 15,497 people have died in the free state in connection with Corona.
