Data cleansing of Covid-19 case numbers in Basel-Stadt
Department of Health
Due to data cleansing, the number of new cases shown today, Monday 1 March 2021, is negative. The reason for this is that cases that had been recorded more than once have been deleted.
Yesterday, Sunday 28 February 2021, several cases that had been recorded twice were deleted from the database of infection figures. Data cleansing of the case numbers took place today, 1 March 2021: Basel-Stadt case numbers today show -14 new infections and -4 recoveries. The errors have occurred over the course of the past six weeks and were all rectified today.
