Corona: Bonn's incidence value has been below 150 for five days

Bonn is not among the 15 local authorities that will receive vaccine for people in neighborhoods or social areas with an increased risk of infection under a new "Decree of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia on the vaccination of the population against Covid-19." "This is very unfortunate, especially since we will have the logistics ready shortly," said Mayor Katja Dörner.

"Therefore, the city has signaled its interest in participating in the event that not all of the intended districts and municipalities come to fruition." This was communicated by the city to the Ministry of Labor, Health and Social Affairs of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MAGS) on Friday, May 14, 2021. The state of North Rhine-Westphalia provides a special contingent of a total of 100,000 vaccine doses for areas with particularly high infection rates.

Click&Test&Meet in retail stores as of Monday

As today, Friday, May 14, 2021, marks the fifth consecutive business day that the Corona incidence in Bonn has been below 150, in accordance with federal emergency brake regulations, retail stores will be able to reopen with an appointment and daily negative shell test (Click&Test&Meet) beginning next Monday. The formal determination of exactly when this will occur is up to the state; the city expects to make such a determination as early as Friday. Last Wednesday, as part of its low-incidence strategy, the federal city's crisis team had voted to monitor how the return of students to rotating classes next Monday would affect incidence levels, and to discuss how to proceed with representatives of the restaurant and retail industries next Tuesday. According to OB Dörner, it is "in all our interests that a yo-yo effect is avoided."

Current figures

797 laboratory-confirmed Covid 19 cases are currently reported by the Bonn City Health Department, with a total of 13658 confirmed infections to date. 1878 citizens of Bonn are in quarantine, 335 people have been infected in the last week. The 7-day incidence value is thus 101.6 as of today, Friday, May 14, 2021. 234 Bonn citizens have died from or with the virus so far. 

As of Wednesday, May 12, the health department has registered a total of 2,851 cases of coronavirus mutations since Jan. 28, 2021: 2805 times the British variant, 2 times the Brazilian variant, 44 times the South African variant. With a total of 545 SARS-CoV-2 cases in the week of April 26-May 2 and 333 new cases with viral variants in the same period, this corresponds to a rate of 61.1 percent (British variant B.1.1.7 60.91%, South African variant 0.18%).

Currently, 75 patients with Covid-19 are being treated in Bonn hospitals, including people who do not live in Bonn. There are 41 in normal wards and 34 in intensive care units, 28 of whom require ventilation.
