Heinsberg study: possibly 1.8 million people infected

According to the results of the so-called heinsberg study, 1.8 million people in germany could have been infected with the coronavirus by now. This is the result of an estimate based on a model calculation, the university of bonn announced on monday.

A leading epidemiologist made a cautious comment. The researchers led by virologist hendrik streeck based their estimate on the number of people infected in the community of gangelt in the district of heinsberg and the mortality rate calculated there for corona infection. The researchers assume that 0.37 percent of those infected in gangelt died. However, only seven deaths were included in the calculation of the mortality rate.

From these data they calculated a theoretical number for germany. In principle, this works like this: the researchers assume that mortality is roughly the same throughout germany. So if it is known how many infected people there are for every dead person, then the number of deceased people, which the RKI puts at more than 6,500, can be used to estimate the number of people who are actually infected – including those who have not been recorded.

The nfl faces an unusual draft

The nfl faces an unusual draft

For many teams in the NFL, the next three days are the most important of the year. The draft is when the best young players come onto the market – managers who make the right choice can change the course of their club for the better over the years.

Without quarterback patrick mahomes, whom the kansas city chiefs selected tenth three years ago, the club probably wouldn’t have won the super bowl in february. The fact that mahomes wasn’t taken until the tenth overall pick and the chicago bears selected mitchell trubisky second overall as their new quarterback shows the challenge: you have to pick the right one.

Exciting will be therefore, who dares to tua tagovailoa. The 22-year-old quarterback could become the next mahomes – but seriously injured his hoof in college in alabama and has not played since then. He tried to prove his fitness with videos. But none of the team doctors could examine him. Because inviting candidates, examining them medically and interviewing them intensively in person – all of this was no longer permitted in the past weeks due to the corona pandemic this year.
