 Corona outbreak after Party on Sylt: Police investigate against guests because of suspicion of fake vaccination passports in the case of a Corona outbreak after a party on Sylt determines the police as to whether several visitors had counterfeit vaccines. "Running the investigation into the fall," said the spokesman for the Police Directorate Flensburg, Christian Carhus, the newspapers of the Funke Media Group. It is therefore about the suspicion that up to three visitors to a Christmas party in Kampen have gained access to fake Corona vaccine passages.

while infectious numbers break a record after another, the debate continues to pass the appropriate pandemic rules. The Robert Koch Institut (RKI) gave the number of new infections over the past 24 hours on Wednesday morning with 112,323. This exceeded the value for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic the brand of 100,000. While federal health minister Karl Laudutbach (SPD) again for the vaccination obligation, Bundestag Vice President Wolfgang Kubicki (FDP) saw the infection wave as a "chance".

The Robert Koch Institut (RKI) gave the number of new infections over the past 24 hours on Wednesday morning with 112,323.

Corona vaccination obligation: Karl Lauderbach does not want to develop your own application

Health Minister Lauterbach could submit an application as a deputy - now he said to the mirror, why he will not do it. © Hannibal Hanschke / AFP Federal Health Minister Karl Lauderbach renounces its own proposal for a general vaccination. He will join one of a proposal developed by the Bundestag , but "not lead" himself developed one, he said to the mirror.

As the RKI announced on Wednesday, the seven-day incidence rose to 584.4 - also a new record. On Tuesday the value was still located at 553.2, a week ago there were still 407.5. Incidence quantifies the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants over the period of seven days. It was already the sixth day in a row with a new record incidence.

How the RKI continued, on Wednesday, 239 new deaths related to the coronavirus were counted. The development of deaths thus remains behind the explosion of infectious numbers.

Federal Health Minister Lauterbach believes that the figures of the RKI still underestimate the actual extent of infection events in Germany. The actual incidence is likely to be "about" about the "factor two" above the incidence reported by the RKI, he said to the transmitter RTL. Lauterbach first counted "in mid-February" with the highlight of the infection wave.

Berlin medicine: The clinic staff "can not"

 Berlin medicine: The clinic staff "we have already shifted almost all sliding treatments. That will continue. And this wave, which comes now, is hardly comparable to the past waves, "said Weimann, who coordinates the Save Berlin network in which the Berlin and Brandenburg intensive stations are represented. © Provided by Berliner Zeitung "Now we are intensive care from home but rather pessimists and prepare us in the worst," said Weimann. Seriously, do not say how bad it will.

The Minister of Health shares the view of experts as the Berlin virologen Christian is suffering that at some point everyone will become infected. But that does not mean that vaccination is superfluous. "There is still no basic immunity especially with old and sick," the minister warned, which therefore demanded a fast decision of the Bundestag to introduce a vaccination obligation.

The Chairman of the German Hospital Society, Gerald Gaß, in view of the seemingly less heavy disease courses, talked to the omikron variant in an infection with the omikron variant for a review of the need for vaccinations. The Ethics Council has oriented its vaccination recommendation to the no longer dominant, deadly delta variant.

"If the policy should come to the conclusion after weighing the scientific findings, that the pandemic is over and therefore no longer needs a vacuumability, then there is a new situation," Gaß said the "Handelsblatt". "If Corona is actually considered only as a flu, the virus must be treated as well - and there is no vaccination for medical staff against the flu."

The RKI announced the seven-day incidence on Sunday at 515.7. On Saturday it was 497,1 - on Friday at 470.6. The number of proven corona new infections gave the RKI on Sunday at 52,504. On Saturday she had stayed at 78,022 and on Friday was reached with 92,223 cases a new nationwide daily high.

Until then, however, the vaccination obligation continues to be needed because it preserves the company in the pandemic from major health and economic damage. "The danger of new variants is not finally answered," warned Gaß.

Bundestag Vice President Kubicki, on the other hand, was optimistic in the "Heilbronn voice" (Wednesday issue): "We are currently experiencing the omikron wave that the chance for a return to the pre-Corona life is greater than ever." He believes "that we see the first foothills of the endemic and that the carefree life returns in the course of the year." He reaffirmed his negative attitude of the vaccination obligation.

Since the beginning of pandemic health authorities reported, according to the latest data of the Institute a total of 8,186,850 cases of infection. The total number of registered Corona-dead in Germany rose to 116.081. The number of people from a disease through the coronavirus new people in Germany estimated the institute with around 7,098,400.

as decisive criterion for a tightening of the Corona-action federal and state governments had set the so-called of hospitalization in November. This value indicates the number of people per 100,000 population within seven days are due to corona infection in the hospital. According to the latest report from the RKI Tuesday of hospitalization was nationwide at 3.17.
