The Corona crisis is now bang on the floor. The “epidemic situation” is supposed to end, the 2G rule has been criticized, and the incidence is on the rise.
Göttingen – The “epidemic situation of national scope” will probably expire in Germany in November. It is the basis for central corona measures. Criticism of the initiative by Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) came promptly. SPD health expert Karl Lauterbach does not consider the numbers to be admissible yet.
Now Lauterbach is both an epidemiologist and a politician. Exactly the topic of a current interview given by the Göttingen physicist Viola Priesemann. In future pandemics, she would like to see a “clearer separation of political considerations and scientific expertise”.
In conversation with the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung the researcher said: “A pandemic council could contribute to this by collating knowledge, uncertainties and scenarios and communicating all of this: What happens if we dare a Freedom Day?” The scientist from the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization has been developing Pandemic model calculations for the spread of the coronavirus.
2G debate in Germany: “Pressure from paid tests is high enough”
In the current discussion about whether only vaccinated and recovered people should have access to certain facilities such as restaurants or cinemas, Priesemann said: “When it comes to the question of“ 2G or 3G ”, I am very clearly in favor of 3G. 2G means excluding people. The pressure that is built up by the chargeable tests * is already high enough. ”With 3G, the respective facilities are also open to those who have been tested.
The nationwide 7-day incidence * of new corona infections has risen to 75.1. The Robert Koch Institute * (RKI) also announced on Tuesday that there were 6771 further infections with the pathogen * within one day. A week ago the incidence was 65.8.
