Notes on the reporting channel

Illnesses from COVID-19 must be reported immediately to the responsible health department by doctors, members of another healing or nursing profession as well as managers of community facilities. The legal basis is the Infection Protection Act and the Corona Notification Ordinance. This report must be available there no later than 24 hours after the reporter became aware of it. The 18 health offices in Brandenburg must report these figures to the State Office for Occupational Safety, Consumer Protection and Health (LAVG) no later than the following working day. Every reported number requires an extensive check and must be recorded using special software (SurvNet reporting system) and transmitted to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) no later than the following working day.

Due to the delay in reporting between the discovery of cases on site and the transmission to the LAVG, there may be deviations from the figures currently published by the districts and urban districts. This is especially true for the weekends. The reported case numbers show a picture of the situation at the times mentioned.

For the assessment of the situation, however, the development of the number of cases over a longer period is relevant. Any statistical inaccuracies in a snapshot are unavoidable.

Notes on recovered persons: The number of recovered persons is an estimate. In general, those infected from the outpatient area are considered to have recovered after 14 days, according to the RKI standard. There is no statutory reporting requirement in Germany for an infected person to recover.

The 7-day incidence corresponds to the number of newly reported COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population in the last seven days.

Number of people actively ill: total number of laboratory-confirmed cases minus the estimated number of people recovered minus deaths.
