The corona incidence in Germany continues to rise. In addition to the Delta variant, travelers returning from vacation are responsible for this. The federal government wants to test more comprehensively.
Germany – Due to the increasing corona incidence of 14.5 (as of July 26) in Germany, Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) is planning tightened corona measures for those returning from vacation. So far, you only had to present a negative Covid-19 test if you were not fully vaccinated or recovered and wanted to enter Germany from a high-risk area or by plane. But since returnees make up a large part of the new infections in addition to the contagious Delta variant, the obligation to test should soon apply to everyone.
In the holiday countries where Germans are most often infected with Sars-CoV-2 according to a study by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Spain is by far in first place. Russia is in second place and the Netherlands is in third place in the inglorious ranking. Fourth to tenth place go to Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Portugal, France and Italy.
The seven-day incidence in Spain is now 338.94 (as of July 26), that of the Netherlands at 237.2 (as of July 27) per 100,000 inhabitants. Ascending trend. This is why Spain and the Netherlands have been upgraded to high incidence areas by the federal government *. This means that those returning from vacation have to be quarantined for ten days. You can only “free yourself” after five days. For fear of being classified as a risk area or another corona wave, the Covid 19 measures have been tightened again in some European holiday countries such as France.
