It is noted that over the past seven days, 201.1 new cases of coronavirus per 100 thousand people have been registered in the country. This figure exceeds the previous maximum (197.6) set on December 22, 2020.
Meanwhile, the number of new hospitalizations is now slightly less than 4 per 100 thousand inhabitants per week, while during the peak period, namely last Christmas, that number in the Federal Republic of Germany stood at 15.5. However, the government points out the overcrowding of hospitals in particularly affected regions.

According to official figures, at least 67% of the population of 83 million people are fully vaccinated. However, according to the authorities, this is not enough. The rate of vaccination in the state is now slowing down. By the way, Germany, unlike other European countries, refused to make vaccinations mandatory for any professional group.
However, there are a number of quarantine restrictions on the territory of the state. In most regions, only vaccinated, cured, or tested citizens have access to some public spaces and events. “These rules are often poorly enforced,” the newspaper notes.
Free rapid tests for all comers were canceled almost a month ago to encourage people to get vaccinated. Also, officials are now in favor of revaccination of all who received the vaccine at least six months ago.
