Erfurt (dpa/th) – The number of statistically recorded new infections with the corona virus within a week has decreased again in Thuringia . On Thursday, the number of new cases per 100,000 inhabitants was 187.5, according to the Robert Koch Institute. A week ago, the value was still 220.5. 1799 new cases were registered from Wednesday to Thursday.
The number of corona cases registered by the health authorities had initially increased again since the beginning of September. Thuringia now has the second lowest incidence of all federal states after Hamburg (149.7).
However, the numbers only allow a limited picture of the infection situation. Only those corona cases that have been detected by means of a PCR test are officially recorded. Positive antigen tests are not counted. In addition, late registrations can lead to distortions.
