The 7-day incidence rate keeps higher at 134.2
That is the highest daily case count since 14 January, with total active cases rising to ~221,600 – the highest since 1 February. This reaffirms that the virus trend in Germany is still worsening in recent weeks ahead of the Easter break.
As a reminder, the government has extended general lockdown measures to 18 April but given the situation, we are likely to see that prolonged into May.
In terms of healthcare capacity, there were 3,680 (+85) virus patients requiring intensive care as of yesterday with there being just 3,301 (14%) intensive care beds still available.
