The incidence in Hamburg continued to grow
The seven-day incidence in Hamburg has quadrupled in a row and now stands at 1,130.9 (previous day: 1,094.5; previous week: 1,179.7). According to social services, 2,066 new infections have been registered in Hamburg by noon. That is 1,596 new cases less than yesterday, but 693 more than on the week ago. A high number of unreported cases can be expected, as fewer tests are performed due to the relaxed rules and many very mild infections are not detected. Another six deaths were registered.
According to social services, 2,066 new cases of coronavirus were registered on Sunday. There were six more dead. more
Newspaper: The Ministry of Health rejects funds for RKI reforms
According to a media report, the Federal Ministry of Health Karel Lauterbach (SPD) is blocking reforms at the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for financial reasons. According to the “Welt am Sonntag”, the ministry informally informed its subordinate office in recent weeks that the federal government would not provide any money or a fraction of the required amounts for the implementation of several project plans that have already been processed. modernize the office. The corresponding commitments were therefore made in the last legislature. Thorough preparations for reforms in recent months would therefore be in vain.
Specifically, these are projects to digitize and monitor the health of the population. The coronavirus pandemic has made it clear that the institute has a long way to go in terms of digitization. Data collection by the office, which was sometimes able to provide only incomplete data on the health crisis, has provoked criticism over and over again. Last year, a small survey in the Bundestag revealed that the RKI and other subordinate bodies of the Ministry of Health lacked more than 100 IT experts who could stand up in the future. Negotiations in the Bundestag on the current government budget are still ongoing. Improvements are possible until adoption in June.
Studies: Inpatients are often affected a year later
Only a few people who need to be treated in hospital for a coronavirus infection will fully recover from the disease within one year. This is the conclusion of a British study published today in the Lancet Respiratory Medicine Journal. Women recover less often than men. Overweight people and patients who had to be ventilated also have significantly worse chances of recovery. The study looked at the health of people released from 39 British hospitals between March 2020 and April 2021 and then assessed their recovery five months and a year later. Only 26 percent of patients reported fully recovering after five months. One year after discharge from the hospital, the proportion rose only slightly to 28.9 percent. The most common long-term symptoms of Covid were fatigue, muscle pain, poor sleep and shortness of breath. “Without effective treatment, long-term Covid could become a widespread new long-term disease,” said study co-author Christopher Brightling of the University of Leicester.
The occurrence value for Lower Saxony is not reliable
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reports a 7-day incidence of 1,122.5 for Lower Saxony. Yesterday, the value was 1,174.1. It should be noted: every day, the RKI publishes the figures reported by the Länder from the previous evening. However, since the beginning of April, the transmission from Lower Saxony only takes place on Monday to Friday, so the values published on Sunday and Monday are not reliable. According to the latest available data, the incidence is highest in the districts of Wittmund (2,042), Oldenburg (1,869) and Diepholz (1,653).
RKI reports a value of 1122.5. However, Lower Saxony only transmits data daily during the week. more
RKI registers 39-179 new coronaviruses – incidence at 807.0
The national seven-day incidence fell again after a short increase. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported today’s value as 807.0 (previous day: 821.7; previous week: 834.3: previous month: 1752.0). 39,179 new coronavirus infections have been reported. One week ago, it was 39,784. Experts have long assumed that there will be a large number of cases that RKI will not detect – due to the overwork of health authorities and also because not all infected people have a PCR test. Only these are included in the statistics. According to new information, 24 deaths were recorded in Germany within 24 hours. One week ago, there were 13 dead.
The incidence in Schleswig-Holstein has increased slightly
The incidence of the corona in Schleswig-Holstein has increased slightly. According to the state registration office, the value is currently 1,151.7. The day before, the seven-day incidence was 1,142. The number of newly reported infections is 1,263, compared with 571 a week earlier.
