Thursday, May 12, 2022, 6:03 a.m .: The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the nationwide seven-day incidence on Thursday morning as 502.4. This is evident from numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5 a.m. The day before, the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week was 507.1 (previous week: 566.8 previous month: 1087.2). However, the incidence does not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. Experts have been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to overworked health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test done. Only these count in the statistics. In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to a distortion of individual daily values.

The health authorities in Germany recently reported 88,961 new corona infections (previous week: 96,167 registered infections) and 197 deaths (previous week: 183) to the RKI within one day. Here, too, comparisons of the data are only possible to a limited extent due to the test behavior, late registrations or transmission problems. In general, the number of registered new infections and deaths varies significantly from weekday to weekday, as more and more federal states do not transmit to the RKI, especially at weekends, and report their cases later in the week.

The RKI has counted 25,592,839 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections go undetected.

2.10 p.m .: Around five months after it was set up, the Corona crisis team in the Federal Chancellery to coordinate nationwide vaccinations against the virus is dissolved. There is now a completely different situation with infections and vaccinations, said deputy government spokeswoman Christiane Hoffmann on Wednesday in Berlin. The tasks of the crisis team headed by Major General Carsten Breuer would now be processed in the usual working structures of the federal government. The government’s Corona Expert Council, on the other hand, is currently in the process of preparing an opinion on the situation in autumn and winter.

The crisis team started at the end of last year with more than ten employees and had around 30 members at its peak. It included experts from the responsible ministries as well as experts from the Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance. The peak in vaccinations was a day in December 2021 when 1.6 million vaccinations were administered. Then the vaccination figures flattened out again.

The Corona Expert Council, which was also founded by the then new government at the end of 2021, is concerned with advising the government. The composition of the Council is diverse.

1:58 p.m .: The responsible EU authorities have started to relax their corona measures for air traffic. Among other things, the recommendation to wear medical masks in airports and on board aircraft will no longer apply from Monday, as the European Aviation Safety Agency EASA and the EU health authority ECDC announced on Wednesday. For passengers and crew members, this is a big step towards normalizing air traffic, said EASA boss Patrick Ky. At the same time, the authorities emphasized that wearing a mouth and nose protector is still one of the best protective measures against the transmission of the corona virus.

The reason for the easing is therefore the latest developments in the pandemic. These include, in particular, the number of vaccinations, the immunity created by infections and the associated lifting of restrictions in a growing number of European countries.

Lufthansa boss Carsten Spohr had already announced that the measure might fall in May. Which should then leave it up to the passengers whether they want to wear a mask or not.

9:27 a.m .: According to media reports, Japan wants to gradually open its borders to foreign tourists again after more than two years of isolation. The government is considering allowing the first small travel groups into the country for test purposes later this month, as reported by the Japanese media on Wednesday. It is uncertain when Japan will also open up to individual tourism. The number of corona cases in intensive care units has fallen. But first the government wants to examine the effects of the “Golden Week”, a series of public holidays, which has just ended on the infection process. For the first time in two years, millions of Japanese were on the move again during this time.

Wednesday, May 11, 7:36 a.m .: The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the nationwide seven-day incidence on Wednesday morning as 507.1. The day before, the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week was 522.7 (previous week: 591.8 previous month: 1080.0). However, the incidence does not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. Experts have been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to overworked health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test done. Only these count in the statistics. In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to a distortion of individual daily values.

The health authorities in Germany recently reported 97,010 new corona infections (previous week: 106,631 registered infections) and 231 deaths (previous week: 241) to the RKI within one day. Here, too, comparisons of the data are only possible to a limited extent due to the test behavior, late registrations or transmission problems. In general, the number of registered new infections and deaths varies significantly from weekday to weekday, as more and more federal states do not transmit to the RKI, especially at weekends, and report their cases later in the week.

9.40 a.m .: The federal government was allowed to close restaurants and other restaurants in the third wave of the pandemic in spring 2021 via the so-called Corona emergency brake. This measure was also constitutionally justified, the Federal Constitutional Court announced on Tuesday. The constitutional complaint of a restaurant operator from Berlin was not accepted for decision. (Az. 1 BvR 1295/21)

The judges had already approved central measures of the federal emergency brake in two fundamental decisions in November. At that time it was about contact and exit restrictions and the closure of schools. The new decision makes reference to this. Formally, it is about the former catalog of measures of paragraph 28b, which was inserted into the Infection Protection Act on April 22, 2021 and remained in force until the end of June 2021. The federal government wanted to ensure that the same measures take effect everywhere in the state as soon as the corona situation in a region worsens. This triggered a wave of lawsuits. There are now very few Corona requirements.

5:10 a.m .: The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the nationwide seven-day incidence on Tuesday morning as 522.7. This is evident from numbers that reflect the status of the RKI dashboard at 5 a.m. The day before, the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants and week was 499.2 (previous week: 632.3 previous month: 1097.9). However, the incidence does not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. Experts have been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to overworked health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test done. Only these count in the statistics. In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to a distortion of individual daily values.

The health authorities in Germany recently reported 107,568 new corona infections (previous week: 113,522 registered infections) and 218 deaths (previous week: 240) to the RKI within one day. Here, too, comparisons of the data are only possible to a limited extent due to the test behavior, late registrations or transmission problems. In general, the number of registered new infections and deaths varies significantly from weekday to weekday, as more and more federal states do not transmit to the RKI, especially at weekends, and report their cases later in the week.

The RKI has counted 25,406,868 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic. The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections go undetected.

9.32 a.m .: The corona measures in the Chinese capital Beijing have been further tightened. The Chinese capital’s city center was largely deserted on Monday after authorities mandated working from home and closed non-essential shops. Residents feared that even stricter regulations, like those that have been in effect in Shanghai for several weeks, will also be enacted in Beijing.

Beijing had reported hundreds of corona cases in the past few weeks. On Monday there were 49 in 24 hours – a relatively small number, but enough to ensure a harsh response from the authorities.

Monday, May 9, 4:30 a.m .: The nationwide seven-day incidence of new corona infections has fallen below 500. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gave the value on Monday morning as 499.2. On Sunday the incidence was 514.0, compared to 639.5 a week ago. The value quantifies the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants over a period of seven days.

As the RKI further announced on Monday, citing data from the health authorities, the number of new infections reported within 24 hours was 3350, after 8488 the day before and 4032 a week ago. The total number of recorded cases of infection in Germany since the beginning of the corona pandemic has increased to 25,299,300.

According to the RKI, five more deaths related to the corona virus were registered within 24 hours. The total number of corona deaths recorded in Germany rose to 136,538.
