Now the RKI speaks of stagnation. "In the coming weeks, after the end of the holiday season, a seasonal increase in respiratory diseases as a whole can be expected," says the COVID-19-week report on Thursday evening. Accordingly, older people in particular could be severely affected.

within 24 hours, the health authorities in Germany have registered 106 further deaths in connection with the coronavirus. A new study shows a possible consequence of a contagion.

At the beginning of autumn, the infection cases according to RKI now seem to rise again. Is a new wave ahead of us? In view of the season, awaits the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) more respiratory diseases in the near future.

Even after a supposedly surviving infection, long -term consequences can occur according to a current study. According to a corona infection, significantly more people suffer from chronic exhaustion syndrome than people who were not in contact with the virus. Most of the exhaustion syndrome are affected by young women, as the Berliner Charité and the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein announced together. The research team evaluated data from around a thousand patients whose corona infection was at least six months.

A comparison group was formed from around a thousand people without previous infection. Around 19 percent of the previously corona -fitted meadows showed relevant symptoms for chronic exhaustion syndrome. In contrast, it was only eight percent in the comparison group. According to the researchers, chronic exhaustion also occurs more than twice as often as in the general population. In particular, she meets younger women between the ages of 18 and 24.

Lauterbach warns countries to act against new Corona wave

 Lauterbach warns countries to act against new Corona wave Federal Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach (SPD) has asked the federal states to respond to the currently increasing Corona infection figures in good time. Germany is "clearly at the beginning of an autumn and winter wave," he said in Berlin on Friday. At the same time, Lauterbach appealed to the population, especially older people, to have their corona vaccinations refreshed. Overall, he sees the country better prepared than in the previous autumn.

Disease connected with personal suffering

"In direct comparison with the general population, we had not expected such high numbers and no clear difference," said one of the co-authors of the study, the Charité neurologist Carsten Finke. The post -infectious chronic exhaustion syndrome, also known as fatigues syndrome, is according to the information due to long -term and strongly pronounced physical weakness.

According to Finke, the disease is associated with great personal suffering, also leads to failures in the workplace and represents a significant burden on the health system. Suitable therapy options are therefore missing. In addition, there have so far been no reliable figures for the frequency of late and long-term consequences like this after a corona infection.
