Wissing advises people not to travel at Christmas

6.49 a.m.:

The designated Federal Transport Minister Volker Wissing (FDP) recommends that Germans refrain from traveling at Christmas.

"Winter 2021 will be more dramatic than winter 2020," he says of "Bild am Sonntag".

"In the current situation, it makes more sense to spend Christmas in a small group at home and not plan any major trips through the country." In addition, all means are being examined within the framework of the constitution to put a stop to the pandemic as soon as possible, including mandatory vaccination.

RKI reports 42,055 new infections - the incidence drops to 439.2

04.15 a.m.:

The nationwide seven-day incidence has fallen slightly again. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week on Sunday morning as 439.2. For comparison: the previous day the value was 442.7, a week ago it was 446.7 (previous month: 169.9). The health authorities in Germany reported 42,055 new corona infections to the RKI within one day. This is evident from the numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 3:47 a.m. Exactly one week ago there were 44,401 infections.

When evaluating the infection rate, it should be borne in mind that experts are currently assuming a noticeable underreporting. Health authorities and clinics can no longer keep up with reporting cases, at least in individual regions. The RKI is also finding it difficult to assess the situation. The slowed increase in the seven-day incidence could "on the one hand be a first indication of a slightly weakening dynamic in the transmission process due to the significantly intensified measures to reduce contact," said the RKI weekly report on Thursday evening. However, the development could »regionally also be due to the increasingly overloaded capacities in the public health service and the exhausted laboratory capacities«.

According to the new information, 94 deaths were recorded across Germany within 24 hours.

A week ago there were 104 deaths.

The RKI has counted 6,158,125 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.

The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not recognized.

The number of corona patients admitted to clinics per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days was given by the RKI on Friday as 5.52 (Thursday: 5.47).

The value is not reported on the weekend.

It plays an essential role in assessing what is happening in the infection.

If limit values ​​3, 6 and 9 are exceeded in the federal states, stricter measures to combat the pandemic can be imposed there.

The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered on Sunday at 5,082,500.

The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with Sars-CoV-2 rose to 103,040.

4:00 a.m. - The Green Youth spokeswoman Sarah-Lee Heinrich urges the traffic light coalition to campaign for the release of the corona vaccine patents.

In view of the occurrence of the Corona virus mutation Omikron, this is more important than the profit interests of a few companies, she says to the editorial network Germany according to a preliminary report.

Over 100 states, including the USA, advocated this path.

"It is time for Germany and the EU to end the blockade and pave the way for a globally fair fight against pandemics."

Röttgen sees division of society through anti-vaccination campaigns

02.55 a.m.:

According to the CDU chairman Norbert Röttgen, anti-vaccination opponents and boycotters of protective measures are more of a challenge for society than compulsory vaccination.

"The split in that it is still left to a minority to trigger a huge wave of infections that affects and restricts the entire population is much more serious," says Röttgen of the editorial network Germany according to a preliminary report.

Röttgen described the planned general corona vaccination obligation as legally tenable.

Karl Lauterbach (SPD) could become head of the Corona Expert Council

1:23 p.m.:

According to information from "Bild am Sonntag", the SPD health expert Karl Lauterbach could become head of the Corona Expert Council in the Chancellery, which is supposed to meet once a week.

A top comrade to the newspaper: "That would be a sensible occupation." Lauterbach is also traded as the Minister of Health.

But since Scholz has promised to fill at least half of the cabinet with women, an SPD politician could take over the office for reasons of parity.
