Further analyses

The following figures illustrate distributions of COVID-19 bridging credits for companies. They serve to provide background information and are updated at irregular intervals. The figures may therefore differ from the daily actual figures. These visualizations are based on data from the guarantee organizations. In order to exclude any conclusions about individual companies and to guarantee their anonymity, only aggregated data can be made available. Due to rounding, it is possible that the sum of the shares may not be 100%.
