RKI - Weekly Report

German 7-day incidence map Aug. 8, 2022.

Weekly report as of Aug. 4, 2022

During reporting week 30, the nationwide 7-day incidence decreased significantly compared to the previous week.

In Germany, the omicron subline BA.5, which has been dominant since mid-June, has 89% in week 28/2022; other variants are almost completely displaced. Number of cases of variants BA.2 and BA.4 also decreased further this week.

Around 1.0 million people have consulted a doctor due to acute respiratory diseases, the total number of acute respiratory diseases (ARE) in of the population is estimated at 3.3 million.

The further course of the pandemic depends on the appearance of new virus variants and the utilization of the vaccination offered. It also largely depends on the behavior of the population. Due to its high effectiveness, the vaccine prevents a severe course, and has not lost its importance even with the omicron variant.

The Robert Koch Institute estimates the threat posed by COVID-19 to the health of the population in Germany as a whole as high.

It is imperative that anyone who shows symptoms of emerging respiratory disease such as cold like symptoms, sore throat or cough (regardless of vaccination status) stays at home, contacts their general practitioner and has a PCR test carried out.
