"Corona weeks of truth": Medicine expects an increase in intensive care patients

The continuously increasing infections with the coronavirus are causing concern for intensive care physicians with regard to autumn.

Düsseldorf – In view of the continuously increasing number of new corona infections, Germany’s intensive care physicians are sounding the alarm and are looking to autumn with concern. “With the current vaccination rates, we will see another increase in the intensive care units in October and November,” said the President of the German Society for Internal Intensive Care Medicine and Emergency Medicine (DGIIN), Christian Karagiannidis, of the Rheinische Post (Tuesday edition). “The good weather is protecting us at the moment. The weeks of truth come when the weather gets cold and wet and uncomfortable. “

Regarding the corona infection numbers, he said: “The higher we now rise with the numbers, the less buffer we will have,” said Karagiannidis about the corona infection numbers, which have been rising significantly for several weeks. “We have to drag the ascent as far as possible in autumn. The doubling time in the incidences and in the intensive occupancy will be of decisive importance. “

Intensive care physicians want corona vaccinations via nasal spray

Karagiannidis also spoke out in favor of promoting the development of corona vaccinations using nasal sprays. “I think we would make even better progress with vaccination if you didn’t have to inject the corona vaccine, but could give it as a nasal spray,” he said. “We should encourage this development as much as possible.”

According to the Federal Ministry of Health, 65.8 percent of people in Germany had received at least one dose of vaccine up to and including Sunday (September 5th, 2021). 61.3 percent of the population are therefore fully vaccinated. The nationwide seven-day incidence of new corona infections rose to 84.3 on Monday, according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). On Monday last week, the value was still at 75.8. (ktho / afp)
