Corona in Germany: Incidence rises above 60 – more than 11,000 new infections

The health authorities in Germany reported 11,561 new corona infections * to the RKI within one day. This can be seen from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard from around 4 a.m. A week ago, the value for Germany was 8,324 new infections. In addition, a total of 39 new deaths were recorded within 24 hours.

The incidence has so far been the basis for many corona restrictions in the pandemic, for example as part of the federal emergency brake that expired at the end of June. In the future, other values, such as hospital admissions, are to be taken more into account. A first draft for the new Infection Protection Act has already been leaked.

More than 53 million (64.2 percent) have received at least one primary vaccination. In the meantime, the booster vaccinations have already started.

According to the FDP MP Gerald Ullrich, the federal government should pay all citizens an antibody test before a third corona vaccination. At the moment, people are expected to get a booster vaccination without knowing whether this is even necessary, he told the German Press Agency.

“Anyone who still has enough antibodies against the coronavirus shouldn’t have to get a blanket vaccination in order to keep the vaccination status.” By contrast, a free antibody test could further strengthen confidence in the vaccination. Ullrich emphasized: “If we want as many people as possible to be vaccinated against Covid-19, the federal government should not proceed according to the watering can principle, ‘a lot helps a lot’, but differentiate.” Skepticism about the booster vaccination is “a fatal one.” A step backwards in the vaccination campaign that we cannot afford ”.
