Bonn · On Friday, the incidence rate in Bonn was 133.4. Reports from the city show which areas of Bonn have the most new Covid cases. Meanwhile, the vaccination bus continues to make its rounds, with vaccines available free of charge to all residents 16 and older. It will be at the Rheinaue flea market this weekend.
Bonn has seen a significant increase in Covid case numbers in recent weeks. Compared to the German national average (74.7), the rate in Bonn on Friday was almost twice as high at 133.4. Currently, there are 652 Covid-19 cases reported in Bonn, and 1,092 people are in quarantine. The incidence rate is particularly high among children and adolescents. Among 10- to 14-year-olds, it recently topped 500.
Statistics from the city regarding the various districts show just how much the number of cases has risen recently. A total of 478 new cases occurred in a seven-day period, according to the data. A week earlier, there were 359 cases citywide. The administration's data for the 62 districts reference the date of September 13. Because of the small populations in the districts, even a few cases can cause the numbers to fluctuate widely from week to week. Only eight of the 62 districts had no new Covid cases recently.
The city had recently reported that the Covid cases were spread throughout the city and that there were fewer concentrated areas now than in the previous wave of infections. Before the summer, the north of Bonn and the south of Bonn (Bad Godesberg) were especially affected.
Still, the highest numbers of cases were recently recorded in districts in the north of Bonn. The front-runners are Medinghoven with 22 new cases within seven days and an incidence of around 490, and Neu-Tannenbusch with 50 new cases and an incidence of around 480. Dransdorf, Alt-Tannenbusch and Bad Godesberg city center follow with well over 300. The number of cases relative to the number of inhabitants recently increased sharply in Dransdorf, Hoholz and Lessenich-Meßdorf. By contrast, they declined in Buschdorf, Oberkassel and Ückesdorf. The front-runner in the Beuel district is the statistical district of Beuel-Ost, with an incidence of 285.
