Rostock (dpa/mv) - The seven-day incidence of new corona infections in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania fell below the 200 mark. The number of new infections reported in one week per 100,000 inhabitants was 176.6 on Friday after 220.2 on Wednesday and 261.7 a week ago, according to the State Office for Health and Social Affairs (Lagus).
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the nationwide incidence in the morning as 211.2. However, it does not provide a complete picture of the development of the infection, also because the official reporting data depends on the testing behavior of the population.
No other death has been reported linked to coronavirus infection in the Northeast. Their total number since the beginning of the pandemic has remained at 2231.
The state office recorded 522 new infections within 24 hours. A week ago there were 633. 174 patients infected with corona were treated in the country's clinics on Friday. There were 12 patients in the intensive care units. The hospitalization incidence, i.e. the number of new corona patients admitted to hospitals per 100,000 inhabitants within a week, was given by the state office on Friday at 1.2.
