Jeff Horseman got into journalism because he liked to write and stunk at math. He grew up in Vermont and he honed his interviewing skills as a supermarket cashier by asking Bernie Sanders “Paper or plastic?” After graduating from Syracuse University in 1999, Jeff began his journalistic odyssey at The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, where he impressed then-U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton so much she called him “John” at the end of an interview. From there, he went to Annapolis, Maryland, where he covered city, county and state government at The Capital newspaper. Today, Jeff writes about anything and everything. Along the way, Jeff has covered wildfires, a tropical storm, 9/11 and the Dec. 2 terror attack in San Bernardino. If you have a question or story idea about politics or the inner workings of government, please let Jeff know. He’ll do his best to answer, even if it involves a little math.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) sees Germany at the beginning of a fourth wave, which is gaining momentum, especially among younger people. See what the situation looks like in the different age groups in your area.

There are currently increasing numbers of younger people who are infected with the corona virus. This is clear from the latest weekly report of the RKI. The report shows that infection rates in the past week were significantly higher than the overall incidence, especially among people under the age of 35.

The table below shows the current incidence rates for all German districts and cities broken down by age group. The data is available on Friday, 20 August 2021.Especially for children and adolescents up to the age of 15, the values are therefore sometimes significantly higher than the overall incidence – and not only in federal states where the minors are regularly tested again in schools after the end of the holiday.

About the data used

To determine the age-related incidences per district or city, the analyst Sebastian Mohr from the Max Planck Institute has prepared data from RKI and Destatis and provided it here on Github. The record is updated regularly.
