Rostock (dpa/mv) - The seven-day incidence of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants has hardly changed over the weekend. The State Office for Health and Social Affairs (Lagus) gave the value on Monday as 177.4, after 176.4 last Friday.
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the nationwide incidence in the morning as 189.0. 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.
Another death linked to coronavirus infection has also been reported in the Northeast, bringing the total since the start of the pandemic to 2,232.
The state office reported 845 new infections on Monday. 154 patients infected with corona were treated in the country's clinics, 20 fewer than on Friday. There were 10 patients in the intensive care units, two fewer than before the weekend. The hospitalization incidence, i.e. the number of new corona patients admitted to hospitals per 100,000 inhabitants within one week, was 0.9 on Monday by the state office, and 1.2 on Friday.
Vaccination rates in the Northeast remain almost unchanged. According to the RKI, 74.3 percent of people have full basic protection after usually two injections. 57.9 percent of the population received a booster vaccination. 5.8 percent have now also received a second booster vaccination.
