Germany Reports New Peak Corona Figures

Germany has reported more than 201 corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants in a week. That is the highest number since the start of the pandemic.

 

The previous record was set at the height of the second corona wave in Germany on December 22 last year. Then in a week, 197.6 corona cases were reported per 100,000 inhabitants. Since then, a large part of the German population has been vaccinated against the coronavirus. As a result, those vaccinated people are better protected against a severe course of disease if they do contract the virus.

Nevertheless, the authorities are taking measures in some places to slow down the further spread of the coronavirus. For example, in Saxony, where infections are far above the national average, unvaccinated people have to deal with strict rules.

For example, unvaccinated people cannot go to indoor events or dine indoors in Saxony from Monday. To do this, people must be able to demonstrate that they have been vaccinated or recovered from the virus. A negative result of a corona test is no longer enough. An exception is made for children and people who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons.
