Berlin (dts news agency) – The number of people who are treated with Covid-19 in an intensive care unit in Germany is falling steadily. 217 patients were reported nationwide on Sunday evening, the lowest level since all hospitals were required to report the numbers in April. In view of the significant increase in the number of active infections in recent weeks, the percentage of intensive care patients also fell to a new low of only 1.28 percent.

According to RKI figures, an acute corona infection is currently detected in almost 17,000 people, both in mid-June and in mid-July the value was at an intermediate low of around 4,700 people for a few days. In mid-June, around eight percent of them were still in an intensive care unit, in July it was around five percent of those actively infected.
