The Robert Koch Institute * (RKI) also observed an increase in the proportion of the Indian variant among infections in Germany. According to the RKI, the proportion of infections identified with variant B.1.617 has so far been around two percent – “but their proportion has increased steadily over the past few weeks,” according to the institute. Research in the UK also showed that the number can double within a week. SPD politician Karl Lauterbach also issued a warning *.

Coronavirus: After the outbreak of the Indian mutant – around 200 residents in quarantine

On Monday (May 17) in North Rhine-Westphalia in the city of Velbert-Birth, a total of 19 people tested positive for the Indian mutation of the coronavirus *, as reported by the WDR, among others. In order to ensure that the virus mutation does not spread as much as possible, several families then had to go into quarantine by order of the health department.

A total of two high-rise buildings were therefore isolated from the outside world. This means that the approximately 200 residents are all no longer allowed to leave their apartments until it is clear who is infected. Those affected were tested on Monday evening in order to receive the results as quickly as possible.

According to WDR , employees of the public order office monitor whether everyone is adhering to the quarantine. Together with representatives of the Red Cross, they also take care of the residents’ purchases or go for walks with their dogs. According to a spokesman, the corona test results of all those affected should be available later in the day. * Merkur.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
