The region in Bavaria, bordering the Czech Republic, remains a hotbed of coronavirus in Germany. According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the Tirschenreuth region of the Upper Palatinate ranks first in terms of the number of people infected in Germany in seven days. The weekly rate is 322 infections per 100,000 inhabitants. In general, four Bavarian counties are among the ten localities with the highest incidence rate: in third place is the Hof region (283.8), in sixth place in the Regen region (249.3), in ninth Wunsiedel district (235.4).

All four districts are on the border with the Czech Republic, where the epidemiological situation is very tense. According to official figures, out of the country’s twelve million inhabitants, almost one million have been infected. At the moment, Bavaria is the only federal state in western Germany, whose regions are among the ten counties with a particularly high incidence rate. The remaining six settlements are located in the eastern federal states.

The incidence rate for seven days per 100,000 inhabitants on average across the country dropped to 90, in Bavaria it is slightly higher – 92. In total, at the moment, the rate exceeds 100 in five federal states: Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony, Thuringia, Brandenburg and Saarland.
