The corona numbers are increasing, the actual vaccination rate is uncertain. Is the end of the pandemic situation evoked too soon?
Berlin – The nationwide seven-day incidence of new corona infections is in the three-digit range for the first time in months. At the same time, the country’s actual vaccination quota is in question: The Association of German Company and Company Doctors assumes that around 1.5 million Corona * vaccinations have not yet been reported in Germany.
Most vaccinations were received via the health insurance system – how many were not reported, but it is still unclear, said the association’s vice-president Anette Wahl-Wachendorf to the editorial network Germany (RND). “We have explained and sensitized in all directions,” she continued. She expects clarifying discussions with the Robert Koch Institute (RKI).
Corona vaccination quota is still unclear – end of pandemic announced too early?
“We don’t have a real vaccination quota, that’s a huge problem, a structural problem,” said Cologne-based infectiologist Gerd Fätkenheuer to the RND. “I’m afraid that it will only become visible in the end through the bills.” Due to the uncertainties in the vaccination rate and the sharp rise in the number of infections, he considers the announced end of the assessment of the pandemic situation to be “very unwise”: “We are just getting into the critical one Winter months and we see what happens in other countries. There couldn’t have been a worse time for this announcement. “
New corona infections in Germany have increased significantly again: The seven-day incidence reached 100 for the first time since mid-May on the weekend. The RKI gave the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Saturday morning (October 23, 2021) exactly 100 on.
The previous day the value was 95.1, a week ago it was 70.8. The health authorities in Germany reported 15,145 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. The advance of Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) to end the corona emergency determined by the Bundestag caused discussions in view of these increasing numbers.
