223.4 infections per 100,000 inhabitants have been reported in the last seven days. The so-called seven-day incidence thus fell by two percent compared to the previous week. The rate of change was negative for the second day in a row. In mid-October, the 7-day incidence had increased by well over 50 percent. Since then, the trend has reversed.
