A comparison between the Covid-19 seven day case rates in German local authorities and those in English local authorities.
Germany is in blue and England is in red.
The vertical axis show the number of local authorities and the horizontal axis shows the case rates. The latter are divided into ‘bins’. The first ‘bin’ shows the number of authorities with case rates between 0 and 25 (there’s just one authority in that ‘bin), the second ‘bin’ shows the number of authorities with case rates between 25 and 50 (this contains 22 local authorities) all the way to the final ‘bin’ which shows cases rates between 975 and 1,000.
Note the very wide range of case rates in England – ranging from 55.7 in Torridge to 961.1 in Knowsley. The lowest case rate in Germany (24.3) is in Kreis Friesland and the highest (426.6) is in Burgenlandkreis. It’s easy to see that Germany has much lower case rates than England.
