Germany sets a new record for Corona injuries per week | DW Arabic news | Breaking news and perspectives from around the world | DW

The German Robert Koch Institute for Disease Control announced today, Saturday (January 15, 2022), that the weekly rate of new Corona infections in the country hit a new record today.

The institute indicated that the rate of new infections per 100,000 people during seven days reached 497.1 this morning, compared to 470.6 on Friday, 335.9 a week ago, and 353 a month ago.

And health offices in Germany recorded, within 24 hours, 78,022 new cases, compared to 55,889 new infections last Saturday. During the last 24 hours, Germany recorded 235 deaths due to infection, compared to 268 cases last Saturday.

The institute stated that the total number of confirmed infections in the country has reached 7,913,473 since the beginning of the pandemic. The true number could be significantly higher because many cases of infection go unnoticed. The total number of people recovered reached 6,942,400 people, while the total deaths reached 115,572 cases.

No economic recovery programs soon

For his part, German Finance Minister Christian Lindner expressed skepticism about the possibility of launching new spending programs to face the repercussions of the Corona pandemic crisis. “During the pandemic, we are used to high aid from the state. This stage must end,” Lindner said in statements to the German newspaper “Welt am Sonntag”, which will be published in its Sunday issue.

Lindner stated that spending space this year is limited, adding that the situation will be more difficult in 2023 due to the scheduled return to curb debt, explaining that he is against launching new support programs, and said: “Not all things can be solved with money always.”

On the other hand, Lindner stated that the government does not plan to give rewards to those who receive the vaccination, adding that the most urgent thing now is to work to educate citizens about the importance of receiving the vaccine and modernizing the infrastructure.

Lindner announced the government’s plans to soon pave the way for a coronavirus tax law, which would make it possible to offset current losses with early gains through taxes and that “this is important for many businesses,” adding that he would also suggest extending tax cuts when working from home and giving more time to file Tax returns.

    A new standard for epidemiological monitoring

    The German authorities have included the level of hospital filling rates among the measures adopted to monitor the development of the epidemiological situation in the country. In addition, Covid patients in the fourth wave of severe cases are younger than the same cases in previous waves of the epidemic. This means that the duration of their stay in hospitals is longer.

    This scene at the train station in Hamburg, which clearly shows the gatherings taking place in public facilities and on public transport, is but an example of what is witnessed in many places. That is why many are calling for an explicit reliance on what has become known as “3G”, at least. That is, either the individual is healthy, vaccinated, or free of disease according to a negative examination. Whoever does not respect the rules will pay a fine of 150 euros.

    Take the vaccine in your own car

    Because Germany has not yet achieved the desired rate of vaccination, which is equivalent to at least 75 percent, the federal government intends to reopen vaccination centers and open others in car parks that are in the city center and thus be easily accessible to people in order to encourage them to receive the vaccine. These centers will also be used to distribute the booster dose of Corona vaccines.
