- The Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians calls for prioritization of those over 60 years of age for the booster vaccination (see update from November 23, 10:40 p.m.).
- In many federal states clubs and bars have to close (see first report from November 23rd).
- Several federal states are introducing the 2G regulation almost across the board (see first report from November 23rd).
Update from November 23, 10:40 p.m .: The Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians contacted Health Minister Spahn in a fire letter. They call for the prioritization of booster vaccinations for people over 60 years of age and those with previous illnesses: It is “imperative that a booster vaccination should now be given to the most vulnerable groups as a matter of priority,” writes the association in the letter that Bild.de is present.
Since the booster vaccination is “not necessary from a medical point of view” for people who do not belong to this group, it is advised against. The over 60-year-olds are the age group that has to complain about the most breakthroughs in vaccination, hospital admissions and deaths despite vaccination protection. According to the statutory health insurance physicians, the booster rate for people over 60 is only 16 percent. According to the doctors, a value of 25 percent would be possible with the help of a prioritization.
Corona in Germany: Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians calls for booster prioritization
First report from November 23rd:
Munich – The situation is serious, the numbers are alarmingly high. On Monday, the outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel * spoke of a “highly dramatic situation” in a meeting of the CDU chairmanship * that “will surpass everything we have had so far”. Even the introduction of the nationwide 2G regulations are hardly sufficient.
New corona rules in Germany: the situation is serious
On Wednesday (November 24th) the measures adopted at the Bund-Länder summit last Thursday * will come into force. Nationwide, 2G regulations in the leisure sector will apply almost nationwide from Wednesday. 2G also applies in many places in retail for non-daily needs. Bars and clubs have to close, in the federal states in which they are allowed to remain open, visitors have to adhere to the 2G-Plus regulations.
The gastronomy gets a curfew from 10 p.m. In Baden-Württemberg, unvaccinated people are in lockdown – they are only allowed to leave the apartment for a valid reason. In addition, the Christmas markets in Saxony and Thuringia, for example, are completely canceled. In Bavarian regions that are considered hotspots – i.e. a seven-day incidence of 1,000 new infections – restaurants, hotels, sports and cultural facilities have to close.
Corona rules in Germany: where does 2G apply, where does 3G apply?
The current figures from the Robert Koch Institute * seem to more than justify these measures. Because the seven-day incidence is 399.8 new infections and a nationwide hospitalization rate of 5.6 admissions of Covid patients per 100,000 inhabitants (as of November 23, 8:00 p.m.). Although both values have improved minimally at the presentation, the situation is still extremely worrying. * Merkur.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
