While the corona pandemic in Germany is ensuring full intensive care units, the situation in Finland does not seem to worsen before winter.
Locals report on the successful model.
Helsinki - The coronavirus is currently causing a steady increase in the number of infections in Germany, and many experts and intensive care physicians are warning of a dramatic winter.
Meanwhile, the situation in other countries does not seem to be quite as dramatic.
Finland in particular has found a way within the pandemic that prepares the country for the corona winter.

While the Robert Koch Institute had reported infection numbers of up to 70,000 infected daily for Germany in the past few weeks, Finland can look forward to comparatively low numbers.
For Monday, November 29, 2021, the local health authorities reported a nationwide incidence of just 134.5.
For comparison: on Monday, November 29, 2021, the RKI reported a nationwide incidence of 452.4 for Germany.
With 182,284 total infections in the corona pandemic and an infection rate of 3.29%, Finland has also come through the pandemic better than Germany, for example.
In this country, the RKI has so far (as of November 29, 2021) reported a total of 5,791,060 infections and an infection rate of 6.96%.
But what exactly is the secret of the Scandinavian country?
Doctor explains secret behind the pandemic - people voluntarily adhere to corona measures
As RTL reports, the country's success should primarily be linked to solidarity among the population.
A local husky breeder reported to the RTL reporter that although the measures were often complained about, everyone understood the point behind them.
Confidence in the government is therefore very high in Finland.
There was never a mask requirement on site, but the recommendation was voluntarily complied with by the people.
A Finnish doctor also told the reporter that the mentality was to blame for the mild course of the pandemic in Finland.
Most Finns would stick to the rules quite voluntarily.
It is still unclear how dangerous the new Corona variant Omikron is.
Vaccine manufacturers are alarmed.
Moderna is already researching an adaptation of the vaccine.
