The Germans are on vacation again – more and more affected by their travels with the Corona over the past month. As Robert Koch Institute (RKI) writes in its weekly management report, epidemics during holiday trips are now on the rise in the epidemic process in Germany.
In the period from June 28 to July 25, 3,662 cases were reported, in which the victims were infected with the virus abroad.
Countries at risk for the expected four weeks are ahead of Spain, Turkey and the Netherlands, Croatia and Greece. A particularly strong increase has been recorded in Turkey since mid-July, where the number of cases reported per week has doubled. Other popular destinations in the top ten on the list are France, Italy, Austria and Denmark.
The spread of a corona by returning to summer vacation should be minimized by the new rules for return travel to Germany. As per the draft directive of the Union Ministry of Health, especially those who have not been vaccinated should be prepared for extensive testing duties.
In a cabinet plan approved by the government on Thursday evening, it was largely based on RKI’s numbers and predictions, which read: “The movement leads to greater risk because new and new contacts are being made.” European Center for Prevention and Control of Diseases Robert Koch notes that during the current outbreak of the delta variant of the corona virus, the number of new infections in Europe is increasing sharply ”and“ travel-related cases ”are on the rise
Most infections continue to occur in Germany
According to the RKI, most of the corona spreads still continue within Germany – at least 81 percent speak. Information on the country where the infection may occur is not available by any means.
According to the report, anxiety and classified virus types are predominant in Germany and other European countries. In this country, a significantly higher infectious delta variant is now found in nine (91 per cent) of ten cases in the random sample. Over the weeks this rate has risen very rapidly.
According to the RKI, seven-day events are currently on the rise in Germany, especially among children, adolescents and young people between the ages of 10 and 34. The previous week’s highest values were 40 for subgroups of 15 to 19 year olds and 45 for 20 to 24 year olds. After all, for those over 60, the vaccination rate is higher than for younger ones, leaving a significant increase so far.
The RKI notes that as the number of infections per 100,000 citizens per seven population is still low, health officials can understand multiple chains of infection.
According to RKI, the number of hospital and intensive care unit cases with Govt-19 has not continued to decline. Instead, the proportion of patients with this diagnosis in all cases of acute respiratory infections was slightly higher last week. “However, overall, the values are currently at a low level.”
More than half of the Germans were fully vaccinated
The federal government’s new entry regulation aims to make vaccinated travelers more responsible: they must provide evidence of a test before they return home from August 1.
In Germany, more than half are now fully vaccinated. Federal Health Minister Jens Spann (41, CDU) made the announcement on Thursday.
According to Spans, 50.9 percent (42.35 million people) are now fully vaccinated. 61.1 percent (51 million) of citizens are vaccinated at least once. According to Spain, the next target is 100 million vaccines in Germany.
