Corona in Germany: Numbers still at a high level

Update from November 24th, 8:03 p.m.:

There

is also no trend reversal

in the number of

reproductions

.

According to the RKI situation report on Tuesday evening, the

so-called

seven-day R

was

0.90

.

On Monday, the R value was 0.97.

This means that an average of 100 people who are infected with Sars-CoV-2 infect around 90 more people.

The value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago.

If it is below 1 for a long time, the infection process subsides.

First report from November 24th:

Munich - Germany has been in

partial lockdown

for a good three weeks

.

The number of corona cases is still high in the second wave *.

The increase in new corona infections has flattened out

since the second

week of

November

, according to the current Covid-19 situation report from the

Robert Koch Institute

(RKI), but the situation remains tense.

The European health authority ECDC doubts the corona measures in Germany.

A current long-term forecast does not bode well.

Stricter measures are needed.

The federal and state governments are apparently in agreement.

At the Corona summit on Wednesday (November 25), a new Corona strategy for Christmas is on the agenda.

Coronavirus: Where do people get infected in Germany?

According to the RKI, the high number of nationwide cases is mostly due to a

vague event

.

"For a large proportion of the cases, the infection environment cannot be determined," says the RKI management report.

Corona outbreaks therefore occur in households, community facilities, old people's and nursing homes as well as in the professional environment and at religious events.

But there are also smaller outbreaks in hospitals, facilities for asylum seekers and refugees and religious events that are driving up the number of corona cases.

Funerals are particularly difficult in Corona times.

In Bremen, the police broke a memorial service with 400 family members.

The mourners would have violated hygiene rules, but showed themselves to be "insightful".

Corona in Germany: the positive rate of the test is higher than ever - material in the laboratories is scarce

According to the data from the Association of Accredited Laboratories in Medicine (ALM), the

positive rate

for the corona tests * carried out continues to rise and is

9.6 percent

for the 47th calendar

week (

November 16 to 22)

(previous week: 9.2 Percent).

It was the highest weekly value since ALM data collection began, it said on Tuesday.

The participating laboratories carried out about as many PCR tests for Sars-CoV-2 as in the previous week.

But the material is scarce.

“We all fall back on manufacturers who are active on the world market.

That doesn't make it any easier for us, ”said Evangelos Kotsopoulos, director of the ALM.

As pleasant as it is that

corona vaccines are

currently being

developed and already being produced

at

high pressure

: The need for plastic materials, for example, is thus increasing.
