Corona in Germany: Incidence continues to rise – doctors' representatives are calling for more vaccination offers on weekends

The corona situation in Germany is still tense. The Marburger Bund is calling for fewer contacts and more vaccination offers on weekends.

  • The Marburger Bund is calling for more offers for corona vaccinations on the weekends. (see update from December 6th, 8:45 a.m.)
  • On Monday morning, the seven-day incidence of the corona crisis nationwide was 441.9. (see first report)
  • Meanwhile, according to a survey, three out of four Germans welcome the recently adopted contact restrictions for unvaccinated people in the corona pandemic. (see first report)

Update from December 6, 8:40 a.m.: The Marburger Bund doctors’ union calls for more corona vaccination offers on the weekends. “People have time on Saturday and Sunday and would be boosted in much larger numbers if they didn’t have to stand in line for hours in the cold,” said union chairwoman Susanne Johna of the newspapers of the Funke media group. “One must now spare no expense and effort in promoting the vaccination campaign.”

The Marburger Bund is calling for more vaccinations – even on weekends.

The goal set by politicians of administering 30 million more vaccinations by the end of the year can only be achieved if the distribution of the vaccine works better, more vaccination centers are reactivated and “we also vaccinate as much as we can at the weekend,” said Johna. Many medical practices are currently closed on the weekends.

Johna appealed to show solidarity with the heavily burdened hospital staff: “As difficult as it is now in the run-up to Christmas – we have to reduce our contacts.” The employees in the hospitals are “faced with a real emergency”. The situation in the intensive care units has become “intolerable” in many places. “Sick reports are increasing, there is a risk of even more staff being absent if the overload continues.” As a result, the care of patients who would have to be treated in hospital for other illnesses also suffer. “We have a solid health crisis in this country,” said the chairwoman of the Marburger Bund.

Corona in Germany: seven-day incidence increased slightly

First report from December 6th: Berlin – Corona in Germany: The nationwide seven-day incidence has increased slightly. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Monday morning at 441.9. The previous day the value was 439.2, a week ago 452.4 (previous month: 183.7). The health authorities in Germany reported 27,836 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 4:24 a.m. Exactly one week ago there were 29,364 infections.

When evaluating the infection rate, it should be borne in mind that experts are currently assuming a noticeable underreporting. Health authorities and clinics can no longer keep up with reporting cases, at least in individual regions. The RKI is also finding it difficult to assess the situation.

The slowed rise in the seven-day incidence could “on the one hand be a first indication of a slightly weakening dynamic in the transmission process due to the significantly intensified measures to reduce contact,” said the RKI weekly report on Thursday evening. However, the development could “regionally also be due to the increasingly overloaded capacities in the public health service and the exhausted laboratory capacities”.

Corona in Germany: the seven-day incidence increased slightly – the majority welcomed adopted contact restrictions

According to the new information, 81 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours. A week ago there were 73 deaths. The RKI has counted 6,185,961 detected infections since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not recognized. The RKI stated the number of people recovered on Monday at 5,120,100. The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 * rose to 103,121.

According to a survey, three out of four Germans welcome the recently adopted contact restrictions for unvaccinated people in the corona pandemic. In the representative survey by the Civey Institute for the Augsburger Allgemeine (Monday), 74 percent said they believed the contact restrictions were correct. 23 percent rejected the measures. 3 percent of those questioned were undecided.

On December 2, the federal and state governments decided that meetings in which an unvaccinated or not recovered person is involved will be limited to one’s own household and a maximum of two people from another household. According to the survey, supporters of almost all major German parties are behind the new regulation. Only the AfD voters, with a majority of 77 percent, are against the contact restrictions for unvaccinated people. The approval for the measure is greatest among those close to the Greens (90 percent), the SPD (89 percent) and the Union (87 percent). (dpa / aka) * is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
