The death of a 78-year-old woman from Paderborn was last announced on May 18. According to the LZG data, the deceased from Bad Lippspringe is by far the youngest fatality in the Paderborn district so far. In the previous 218 deaths, none of the dead were under the age of 45. In North Rhine-Westphalia, of the 25,522 deaths so far, only 21 were younger than 20 years old.
On Monday morning, the LZG reported an unchanged weekly incidence of 410.2 for the Paderborn district (as of: 0 a.m.), since the district did not report any cases to the LZG on Sundays. This corresponds to 1237 new corona infections in the past seven days.
On Friday the daily updated incidence was 415.8, on Monday a week ago it was 277.9 and on Monday a month ago it was 492.6. The LZG estimates the number of people currently infected in the district to be 2,300.
The DIVI intensive care register for the Paderborn district states that 55 of 65 intensive care beds are occupied – 5 with corona cases, 2 of which are ventilated invasively (as of June 13, 1 p.m., hourly update, adult intensive care units). According to the district, a total of 21 corona patients are currently being treated in the hospital.
The incidence value in North Rhine-Westphalia is 403.6 (405.5) on June 13 and 331.8 (348.9) in Germany. A look at Paderborn neighboring districts results in the following picture according to LZG information: Gütersloh 572.9 (520.3) – Hochsauerlandkreis 597.2 (503.0) – Höxter 464.5 (464.5) – Lippe 293.4 (312.7) – Soest 414 .3 (423.6).
The incidence value results from the sum of the new coronavirus infections in the past seven days per 100,000 inhabitants.

Background: case numbers
Key word: reporting and transmission delay
Since the official corona incidence of the RKI for the Paderborn district no longer reflected the course of infection, the reporting procedure of the district to the LZG was changed at the end of January. “With the current incidence of infection, we are no longer able to send all cases to the LZG with a reporting form. We have therefore agreed to only send the number of cases first and then to submit the registration forms afterwards,” said the head of the district health office, Dr. Constanze Kuhnert, on January 27th. The cases go from the LZG to the RKI. The Paderborn district health office is concentrating “in view of the currently exploding numbers on its original task, the containment of the pandemic,” said the district’s management report from February 3rd. After the change in the reporting procedure, the incidence rose sharply and, according to the district, again reflected the infection process.
The Landeszentrum Gesundheit (LZG) NRW explains the following about the reporting process on its website: “The respective registration status is shown, which the health authorities determine based on the local reports in accordance with the requirements of the Infection Protection Act (IfSG) and transmit them to the LZG. The LZG, for its part, forwards the data to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) every evening in the course of the evening, both of which provide an updated status once a day at the change of day. This multi-stage reporting process is laborious and time-consuming, especially in the local health authorities, and is subject to constant quality assurance. Therefore, it often happens that the information at the local, state and federal level is not completely congruent. In particular, it is possible that information is already available on site that has not yet been forwarded to the reporting system.”
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on this: “For the total number per federal state/county, the cases reported to the health authorities according to the Infection Protection Act are used, which were transmitted to the RKI by midnight on the respective day. For the presentation of the newly transmitted cases per day the reporting date is used – the date on which the local health authority became aware of the case and recorded it electronically. There may be a few days between the notification by the doctors and laboratories to the health authority and the transmission of the cases to the responsible state authorities and the RKI pass (reporting and transmission delay). Every day, new cases are transmitted to the RKI that have been reported to the health department on the same day or earlier. These cases are then shown in the graphic New COVID-19 cases/day at the added to the respective date.” The exact time of infection of the reported cases cannot usually be determined. The date of notification to the health department therefore best reflects the time when the infection was detected (diagnosis date) and thus the current infection process. Due to the delay in reporting, the data for the last few days in the graphic is still incomplete and will be filled with the data transmitted in the coming days.
