According to the health department, there are various reasons for this, such as the colder season. In addition, many vacationers have returned from the fall vacations and school has started again. In addition, more public events are taking place again, and vaccination effectiveness is waning among vulnerable groups (possibility of booster vaccination).
With the recent jump in 7-day incidence to 71.7, new infections are split 20 percent between outbreak events (essentially a senior facility), 20 percent travelers returning, about 30 percent close household contacts, and about 25 percent schools and daycare centers.
Due to the end of the fall vacations and many people returning from their vacations, the health department estimates that there will also be an increase in vaccination outbreaks. These currently account for about 30 percent, mainly affecting people between the ages of 25 and 45.
The health department is watching to see how the incidence of infection develops and whether the vaccine for children between 5 and 12 years of age will soon be approved. Unfortunately, the willingness of citizens to cooperate is decreasing, which complicates the investigations of the health department.
Currently, there are 326 laboratory-confirmed Covid-19 cases in Bonn. In the past seven days, 237 new infections have been reported to the health department. Currently, 387 people are in quarantine.
