At the start of the new week, the data on the corona situation in Lower Saxony worsened again. According to the state government, the relevant so-called hospitalization incidence was 7.4 on Monday morning. The day before, the value was 7.2 - it indicates how many infected people per 100,000 inhabitants had to be newly admitted to a clinic in the past seven days.



At the start of the new week, the data on the corona situation in Lower Saxony worsened again.

According to the state government, the relevant so-called hospitalization incidence was 7.4 on Monday morning.

The day before, the value was 7.2 - it indicates how many infected people per 100,000 inhabitants had to be newly admitted to a clinic in the past seven days.

Hanover - With the general incidence of confirmed additional infections with the corona virus, the situation has recently also worsened: According to data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), it rose in the national average from 212.2 to 217.4.

Overall, the utilization of intensive care units in Lower Saxony is not as high as in some other federal states, so there have already been several patient transfers.

But here, too, it is gradually getting tighter: At the beginning of the week, 9.4 percent of the maximum available intensive care beds were occupied by Covid patients, after 8.5 percent on Sunday.

In the country, the corona warning levels take effect when hospitalization and at least one of the other two indicators (newly infected, intensive care bed occupancy) exceed certain thresholds.

Level 1 with 2G regulation has been in force nationwide since last Wednesday - unvaccinated people are excluded from parts of public life.

Since the numbers have remained so tight for several days in a row, level 2 with the 2G-plus rule is likely to be imposed soon, at least in individual regions.

Then, in many areas, vaccinated and convalescent people only have access if they can present a fresh negative corona test.

For meetings of larger groups and the mask requirement would also be tightened.

On Monday, levels 3 were already reached for the sub-factor total incidence in a number of districts and urban districts - especially in the west and south-east of Lower Saxony.

Corona situation in Lower Saxony remains tense

Prime Minister Stephan Weil is the first SPD head of government to explicitly call for a corona vaccination for everyone.

The omicron variant of the virus, which has now also been detected in Germany, means a new situation, he told the “Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung” (Monday): “First studies show that booster vaccinations, in particular, can also have a good effect against this mutation.

Therefore a general compulsory vaccination is indispensable now at the latest. "

In addition, stricter measures will most likely have to be taken: "When we reach warning level two next Wednesday, we will roll out the 2G-plus rule across the board," said Weil.

A lockdown in the period after Christmas cannot be ruled out.
