Corona in Germany: Spahn sees "encouraging" signs

Update from November 11th, 9.46 a.m.:

According to Federal Health


Jens Spahn, the


corona case numbers

are a sign of a

positive change


The dynamics of the infection process have "significantly reduced" in the past few days, said Spahn on Wednesday in the program "Frühstart" on the TV channels RTL and ntv.

“It is still rising, but it is rising less rapidly.

That's encouraging at first, but it's not enough. ”It is still too early to speak of a“ trend reversal ”.

In the past 24 hours,

18,487 new corona infections

(previous day: 15,332) and 261 deaths (previous day: 154) were recorded

in Germany,

reports the

Robert Koch Institute


For comparison: last Wednesday 17,214 corona cases were recorded (see update from November 11, 6:23 a.m.).


7-day R

is 0.92 (previous day: 0.98), writes the RKI in its current management report (November 10).

This value reflects the infection process 8 to 16 days ago.

If the 7-day R is below 1, the infection process subsides


It's still rising, but it's rising less.

At first, that's encouraging, but it's not enough. "

Health Minister Jens Spahn

Corona in Germany: What happens to the Christmas holidays?

Spahn commented positively on a proposal by NRW Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU)

to start


Christmas holidays


because of the

corona pandemic


"That is certainly part of the debate," said the minister.

Planability is important for parents, children and teachers.

“That would be the case with such a measure.” On the other hand, Spahn sees no scope for larger Christmas parties.
