Düsseldorf (dpa / lnw) – In North Rhine-Westphalia there is a slight downward trend in the number of corona infections. Within seven days, 132.5 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were registered, according to data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Wednesday (as of 00:00). The so-called weekly incidence was again lower than the previous day (138.8). The goal is an incidence of 50. From this value, the health authorities can still track the routes of infection.
Nationwide, the weekly incidence on Wednesday was 141.3 according to the RKI. That is a decrease of 7.9 points. To what extent these numbers reflect the actual infection level is currently still open. The RKI points out that there is less testing around Christmas and the turn of the year and the health authorities pass fewer reports to the RKI.
The Landeszentrum Gesundheit (LZG) NRW was reported to 4429 new infections in NRW within one day by Wednesday (midnight). Since the outbreak of the pandemic in North Rhine-Westphalia, more than 387,000 people have demonstrably been infected with the virus. The number of deaths rose by 224 to 6450.
On Wednesday, according to the RKI overview, the districts of Gütersloh (210.1), Viersen (201) and Minden-Lübbecke (200.3) were above the critical incidence of 200, at which further corona restrictions apply.
