According to a media report, Federal Health Minister Jens Spann (CDU) plans to buy 204 million corona vaccines next year. “Thus it is expected that Germany will be given a little more than two doses per citizen, including the safety reserve,” the Health Ministry statement said. Handlesplot Should be available and submitted to the Cabinet on Wednesday.
According to the report, dosages should be obtained “to protect vaccines in good time at extra time to protect against mutations and booster vaccines”. Overall, the ministry expects to spend 3. 3.9 billion by 2022. Funding is available for this.
Span wants to order from various vaccine manufacturers, not Astra Geneca and Kurewak among them. A second analysis of the active ingredient in Curaவாகao recently again showed low efficacy. It was 47 percent.
According to the report, Span plans a dose of 84.4 million from Biotech / Pfizer. The European Union has already signed an agreement with the manufacturer to supply 1.8 billion cans by 2023. In addition, 31.8 million doses of modern MRNA vaccine and 18.3 million doses of Johnson & Johnson vector vaccine will be ordered. Manufacturers distribute a total of 70 million cans from Sanovi, Nova Vox and Volneva. (01.07.2021)
The effectiveness of the Kurawak vaccine is low
Health officials in Germany reported 892 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) in a single day. It comes from the numbers from Thursday morning, which reflects the status of the RKI dashboard at 04:14. For comparison: a week ago the value was 1008 infections. RKI presented seven-day events nationwide at 5.1 (previous day: 5.2; previous week: 6.6).
According to the report, 63 deaths were reported in Germany within 24 hours. A week ago, 93 people died. RKI has counted 3 729 033 infections diagnosed with SARS-Cowie-2 since the onset of the infection. Since many infections are undiagnosed, the actual total number can be significantly higher.

The effectiveness of the Kurawak vaccine is low
The disappointing study results for the German company Kurevac vaccine have also been confirmed after the final study. Accordingly, the vaccine showed 48 percent efficacy against any serious covid disease, for all ages, according to the Dopingan-based company. In an interim analysis two weeks ago, it was 47 percent. However, in the final evaluation, according to Kurewak, the “significant protective effect” of the vaccine was observed in the study participants aged 18 to 60 years. However, they are less at risk for infection than the elderly.
At this age, it was found to be 53 per cent effective against any severity and 77 per cent against moderate and severe diseases. Participants in the vaccinated study at this age were completely protected from hospitalization or death – six cases in the group received placebo. For study participants over the age of 60, who represented nine percent of the cases tested, no statistically clear conclusions about performance were possible.
In the final study, a total of 228 Govt cases were examined, of which 83 were in the vaccine group. Among 18- to 60-year-olds, variance-based performance ranges from about 42 to 67 percent. 15 virus types were found in the evaluation, the original virus strain, on the other hand, has not yet occurred. A total of 40,000 subjects participated in the study in ten countries in Latin America and Europe.
Kurewak said it was in exchange with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to continue the approval process for the vaccine. The company’s vaccine is not included in the federal health ministry’s plans for 2022. Curaவாகao CEO Franz-Werner Haas was optimistic: “We believe that this performance profile will play a key role in overcoming the Covit 19 epidemic and tackling the dynamic spread of virus variants.” However, he himself had recently said that Kurevak should be 50 per cent effective for the application for approval.

Only almost chronic patients in Govt wards
Almost all chronic patients are treated in the Govit intensive care units of German clinics. “The vast majority of the approximately 600 Govt patients in the intensive care unit are chronic patients,” said Gernot Marx, president of the German Intermediate Institute for Intensive and Emergency Medicine (TV), a newspaper of the Funke Media Group. There are also new additions to individual cases, but many patients in hospitals are in intensive care for several months. Most Kovit intensive care patients are in their 50s to 70s.
In addition, thousands of patients in Germany suffer from the long-term effects of Govt disease. In Barmer, the second largest German health insurance company alone, more than 2,900 insured persons were affected by the long or post-Covit from November 2020 to March 2021, an analysis of data insured by the health insurance company, which is available at the German Press Institute in Berlin.
Ursula Marshall, a senior medical officer at Barmer, believes that many people with random symptoms are unaware that they have Longcoid disease. Marshall stressed that it is not always easy to see when a severe viral infection will stop and long-term effects will begin. The latter Kovit has been officially coded as a disease by doctors ’billing system since January 2021.
Of the Palmer policyholders who were initially on sick leave from January to March 2021 due to corona, at least 6.3 per cent were later unable to work due to post-coveted work. According to the Farmer survey, post-coit syndrome is more common in women than men. (01.07.2021)
Travel warning removed for more than 80 high-risk countries
More than a year of corona infection, suggests Central government As of tomorrow, Thursday, there will be no more trips abroad on any basis. Travel warnings for more than 80 countries classified as corona risk areas in whole or in part will also be removed. This includes all holiday destinations in Turkey and Spain and Croatia.
The decision to rearrange travel information was made almost three weeks ago, and the move will explode due to the rapid expansion of the delta variation. Responsible Foreign Minister Haiko Mass protects him. “The time for blanket assessments should be over,” the Social Democrat politician said Tuesday. “Where there are positive improvements, there is no reason to maintain controls.” At the beginning of the epidemic on March 17, 2020, Mass issued a global travel alert to tourists. The background is that many vacationers at the time were stranded and had to be brought back to Germany with unprecedented strength as their flights were canceled.
In September, the warning was limited to corona risk areas, with a new infection rate of more than 50 per 100,000 people in seven days (7-day event). But even for all countries not classified as high-risk areas, the federal government continued to advise against holiday trips until this Wednesday. Not anymore. Will be in travel consultation with the Federal Foreign Office from Thursday Three types of countries.
The Travel alert Applies only to 200 (high incidence areas) and areas where dangerous virus types are most prevalent (areas of virus variation). Of the total 200 countries worldwide, this is only 40. There are no more cases in Europe, only Great Britain and Portugal are currently classified as areas of viral variation. A travel alert from the Federal Foreign Office will primarily have a preventive effect. Before Corona, it was only pronounced for war and crisis areas. However, the practical effects are minimal. Above all, Travel Alert allows you to cancel bookings for free during the holidays.
The following rule applies to 26 EU countries except Germany, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland: If they are no longer classified as high risk, they will only be “um” in the Federal Foreign Office’s travel advice Special alert “It affects 26 countries. The exceptions are separate regions in Spain, Ireland, Croatia and Sweden.
There is a long distance between these two types More than 100 countries outside the EUThey are considered high-risk areas or “risk-free”. If there are entry restrictions or isolated duties after entry, the Federal Foreign Office advises against traveling there. Since all entry barriers have been removed in one of these third countries, only the advice of a special alert applies. (30.06.2021)
