Diffuse outbreak causes corona incidence value to rise

The corona incidence value for Bonn, Germany, based on 100,000 inhabitants, increased to 80.7 on Monday, February 22, 2021. This increase is due to a diffuse outbreak event.

As the city administration represents, the recent new Corona infections are not related to specific infection events. The increase in incidence over the past week is largely due to two known outbreaks in nursing homes. The increase over the weekend is due to diffuse outbreak activity, while at the same time two days with low case counts dropped out of the 7-day statistics.

Over the past seven days, the city health department recorded 266 new infections. Since February 28, 2020, a total of 9322 confirmed Covid 19 cases have been reported, 8839 people have since recovered, 178 Bonners have died in association with the coronavirus, and 305 people are currently infected. 614 citizens are currently in quarantine. 

Bonn hospitals currently have 70 people from Bonn and the surrounding area who have contracted Covid-19. 42 patients are being cared for in normal wards, 28 people are in intensive care units, 17 of whom require ventilation.

Increased checks on popular destinations

When the weather is good, the city's public order service and the GABI police station (Gemeinsame Anlaufstelle Bonn-Innenstadt) keep a close eye on the banks of the Rhine, the Rheinaue, the Siegaue and other popular excursion destinations, for example, and carry out more checks there. The city appeals to people to continue to stay outdoors together with no more than the members of a household and a maximum of one other person, to comply with applicable mask obligations and to maintain the required minimum distance. 

This is particularly important where there is no general mask requirement, but in certain situations a mask must be worn and a distance of 1.5 meters from other people must be maintained, such as in queues to buy ice cream, food or drinks.
