Berlin - The seven-day incidence * in Germany has been rising again for almost three weeks.
According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Tuesday morning, it is 14.5 - the previous day the value was 14.3, at the low of July 6, 4.9.

According to the new information, 38 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.

Corona virus in Germany: Lauterbach warns of lessons without restrictions
The summer holidays are just around the corner or have already started in some federal states. But there are already great concerns about how things will go on in schools afterwards. SPD politician Karl Lauterbach has warned against starting school without any corona restrictions. “I have already heard from the Länder about the idea of resuming classes after the summer without any restrictions, even with high incidences. We would have a complete infection of all students by the end of the school year, ”he told the
If you shut down the protective measures in schools too early, a large number of children would be infected with Covid-19 *.
It is unclear how many of them have to struggle with long-covid long-term effects or even a weaker immune system after an illness.
Alternatively, schools could stick to alternating classes, masks, tests and quarantine for sick students.
"In my opinion, vaccinating teenagers over the age of twelve can also help a lot in overcoming the pandemic," said Lauterbach.
Federal Minister of Justice Lambrecht: Restaurateurs can only make offers for vaccinated people
Federal Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD) has reminded restaurants of the possibility of opening them only to vaccinated people. "The freedom of contract enables private providers such as restaurateurs to design their offers largely freely," she told the newspapers of the Funke media group. "Anyone who wants to offer their guests special protection can therefore also make offers that are only aimed at those who have been vaccinated." At the same time, she again spoke out against compulsory vaccination. "There will be no compulsory vaccination."
However, from their point of view, the general public should no longer have to pay the costs of corona tests * in the long term if people do not take advantage of their vaccination offers.
Lambrecht warned that people who have been tested should not feel as though they were in a false sense of security.
“A test is only ever a snapshot and does not contain any protective immunization.
Vaccination is therefore the order of the day. ”
