Since the outbreak of the pandemic are in Schleswig-Holstein altogether 14,255 confirmed corona cases (Data status November 29th) – 71 Sars-CoV-2 infections more than the day before. Compared to Monday a week ago, that’s a minus of 79 cases. However, four districts have not yet reported any figures. This comes from the latest figures from the state registration office, the Institute for Infection Medicine at the University of Kiel. According to an estimate by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), approximately 11,100 people as recovered.
The following table shows how many corona cases from the districts and urban districts have been reported to the state registration office – since the beginning of the pandemic (“Cases” column). These values are published once a day. The “+/-” column shows the change in this value compared to the previous day. The incidence indicates how many cases per 100,000 population have been reported in total according to this statistic. Due to late registrations and delays in the reporting channel, the information provided by the districts or the RKI may differ.
118 patients are currently in the hospital
According to the Ministry of Health, 118 people are currently being treated in a clinic in connection with a corona infection, just as many as the day before. 22 of them are in intensive therapy, twelve patients have to be ventilated. The previous high was in Schleswig-Holstein on April 5th. At that time, a total of 162 patients were treated in clinics.
So far, 253 deaths related to the viral disease have been reported, four more than the previous day. In addition to the numbers for all of Schleswig-Holstein are on the Homepage of the Institute for Infection Medicine you can also see the figures for the individual districts and cities. Most corona cases are therefore in the Pinneberg district (2,483), the fewest in the independent city of Flensburg (318).
The following map shows the utilization of the intensive care units in Schleswig-Holstein – summarized at the level of the districts and urban districts. If you select a region (touch or click), you will find out exactly how high the load is there and you will receive information on how many corona patients are being treated in the intensive care unit and how many are being ventilated. The status of the date in the table must be observed. Due to delays in the reporting process, the information provided by the clinics or the DIVI intensive care register may differ.
Development of the number of corona cases in Schleswig-Holstein
Risk area from 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants
The incidence value indicates the number of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days. A district or an independent city is considered a risk area if the threshold of 50 newly reported infections per 100,000 inhabitants is exceeded. This value is very dynamic and changes every day with the new information about reported infections. Some districts and urban districts in Schleswig-Holstein have reached this critical threshold or are close to it – that is why the state government reacted by adapting the measures after consultation with Chancellor Angela Merkel and the state premiers.
On the following map you can see the infection rate in the counties in the five northern German states. The figures are based on data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). They were sent to the RKI the day before the specified date. This makes them the most recent comparable values that we can access automatically. They are not as up-to-date as the numbers that the circles publish on their pages. The information can therefore vary slightly from one another. To see the values in the circles, move the mouse over the districts (desktop) or tap on the corresponding circle (smartphone and tablet):
What these numbers say – and what not
The state government’s statistics show how many confirmed corona cases are known to the authorities in the country and were reported in the intended way. What the statistics cannot clearly show, let alone the current day, is the speed with which the virus is spreading. Because the number of people who have newly tested positive usually also includes post-reported cases from several days. There are delays in the reporting chain, especially around weekends and public holidays.
