Number of corona infections on the rise again

Since the end of January, the number of Corona infections in Bonn has increased again. After the incidence value on January 22 was 50.9, the 7-day incidence on Thursday, February 15, 2023, in relation to 100,000 inhabitants is 106.7. In the past days, 354 laboratory-confirmed new infections (positive PCR tests) have been reported to the health department of the city of Bonn.

According to the health department, the current increase in recent weeks could be due to the abolition of mandatory masks in buses and trains and the numerous carnival events. It must be expected that the number of cases will continue to rise due to the upcoming "hot phase" of the carnival from Weiberfastnacht, February 16, up to and including Veilchendienstag, February 21. Basically, the health department recommends continuing to maintain good hand hygiene and distance. In case of doubt, a mask should continue to be worn.

Meanwhile, vaccination numbers are little changed. To date, 299,700 first vaccinations, 290,823 second vaccinations (up 16 from the previous week), 248,480 third vaccinations (up 14) and 65,312 fourth vaccinations (up 215) have been administered in Bonn (as of February 14, 2023).
