Two German counties have reported zero cases of the Coronavirus, a sign of success as the country fights to get the disease under control within its borders.

According to the Robert Koch Institute, the country’s infectious disease agency, both Goslar in the centre and Friesland in the northwest on Tuesday had an average of zero cases per 100,000 residents in the last seven days.

After that, the next best is the county of Vorpommern-Ruegen, in the northeast, with a rate of 1.3.

Nationwide, Germany has a rate of around 22.9 cases per 100,000 people over seven days.

That’s a marked improvement from several weeks ago when the number was routinely over 100 and individual districts had numbers around 300 or more.

However, the numbers are not infallible.

Data sometimes takes a while to be crunched and can be out of date, thus, while national health authorities say Goslar is at zero, the local health authority provides a number of 2.2, noting that there are no new cases reported on Tuesday, but there are 28 active cases they are still tracking.

But in Friesland, county official Sven Ambrosy said the low number was attributable to thorough contact tracing.

“For months, we’ve had relatively low and stable incidence numbers here in Friesland, which has been falling in the last few days.’’
