Red Alert!

Germany’s COVID19 incidence rate — the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants over a seven-day period — rose for a fifth day in a row, coming in at 6.2 compared to 5.8 on Saturday.

The incidence rate a week ago was 5, according to the RKI.

That means, well, what does that mean? Other than who cares? Just a few weeks ago German health officials were dreaming of one day reaching an incidence rate below 50. Then the world would be in order again.

But that was then and this is now so I guess we’re heading for the next big lockdown. Cool.
