Bavaria’s Minister of Health Klaus Holtzek (CSU) is adamant in his efforts to allow non-vaccinated people with high health insurance contributions to pay for Covit-19 treatment. “Unity is not a one-way street,” says Holetzek, considering the costs incurred by legal health insurance companies in treating non-vaccinated Govt-19 patients. It is also a matter of exploring the mandatory vaccine and with what restrictions it can be implemented. “Mandatory vaccination without restrictions is a toothless tiger.”
+++ 05:09 RKI reports 21,080 new infections, events 215.6 +++
Health officials have reported 21,080 new infections at the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). This is 2348 cases less than last Tuesday. The nationwide seven-day event fell to 215.6 from 222.7 the previous day. Another 372 people have died from the virus. RKI points out that fewer trials are carried out during the holidays and at the beginning of the year, so fewer cases are reported.
Note: RKI figures generally deviate slightly from case data ntv.de Daily evening reports. The ntv.de database directly accesses federal statistics published by local ministries and authorities. RKI, on the other hand, is bound by legally recommended reporting channels, which can lead to delays.
In addition, the respective daily values map the different recording periods: ntv rating collects country information published within the evening and uses it to calculate the daily status of reported cases, which are usually released from 8 pm. RKI’s registration system, on the other hand, takes into account incoming reports until midnight, and the current data level will be announced the next morning.
+++ 04:40 Communication restrictions are in effect +++
As of today, the communication restrictions recently decided by the central and state governments apply throughout Germany. Inside and out, only ten vaccinators and healers are allowed to be together. With those who have not been vaccinated, members of one household will be allowed to meet only the other two.

In some countries, stricter corona rules are already in place.
+++ 03:48 Patient Safety: The Bundestock Trajectory should be regulated +++
Patients’ advocates believe that bandet stock should have restrictions on the so-called trajectory in the treatment of patients with Govit-19 disease. Eugen Bryce, a German newspaper, says the board of directors of the German Foundation for the Care of the Patient “is only democratically legitimized by members of the Bundestock to make such a decision.” The key question is whether anyone will be taken out of the ventilator. The rules should be the same in all hospitals, says Bryce. “And the pundit stock will decide it more than the economists.”
+++ 03:04 Teachers’ Union calls for school lockout products +++
In view of the increasing incidence of severe coronavirus among children in the United States, the German Teachers Association has called for preparations to close potential schools. “Once the fifth wave reaches Germany, we can act quickly,” union president Heinz-Peter Meittinger told Tagesspiegel. If distance and shift lessons and emergency treatment are necessary in January, plans for this should be implemented now. Can’t wait until the next Prime Ministerial Conference on January 7th. Short, hard school locks would be ideal for frequent school closures in the coming months.

+++ 01:53 KBV boss Gassen does not trust compulsory vaccinations +++
Andreas Casson, president of the National Association of Legal Health Insurance Physicians (KBV), rejects the common mandatory vaccine against the corona virus. “It’s better to focus all our efforts on vaccines and boosters than to turn a big, uncontrollable wheel on the topic of compulsory vaccines and vaccine records,” says Kazen of The New Osnabrooker Zeitung. KBV said it was “unrealistic to immediately create a federal record in preparation for a potential corona vaccine obligation”. Construction is “months, maybe years”. You “can not seriously impose a mandatory vaccine on people, and then the effect of the vaccine will only last a few months”.

+++ 00:13 US Health Commission reduces isolation after infection +++
U.S. health officials are reducing the recommended isolation period after a corona infection from ten to five days. The reason is that there is scientific evidence that most infections occur early in the disease – usually one to two days after the onset of symptoms and two to three days afterwards, the CDC said. So far, the agency has recommended ten days of isolation. Authorities understand isolation after a confirmed infection.
