20, 35 or 50? Not expedient !: Berlin medical officers call for a move away from easing the incidence value – Berlin


Berlin’s medical officers are calling for loosening to be no longer linked to general incidence values. It is “not expedient to link containment measures to incidences of 20/35/50”, according to a statement from all twelve medical officers, which is available exclusively to the Tagesspiegel.

 The  paper was sent to the Senate Chancellery over the weekend. In preparation for the Prime Minister’s Conference on March 3, work is currently underway there on opening scenarios. “© www.de24.news

 The y are dependent on test capacities and people’s willingness to test. “This leads to fluctuations that do not reflect the infectious situation.”

It makes a difference whether incidences are caused by cluster outbreaks or widespread contamination and also which age groups are infected, argue the doctors. Instead, they suggest aligning measures with the possible consequences of an illness.

 The  age group for which the incidence applies is decisive

From the circle of medical officers it was said that there was a huge difference whether there was a seven-day incidence of 50, all infected children were symptom-free children and those over 80 years of age had already been vaccinated, or whether at an incidence of 50 risk groups were primarily affected be. Accordingly, one would also have to adjust the political measures accordingly.

 The  heads of the district health authorities are also calling on the Senate to provide financial resources to provide information “in particular on the scientific status of vaccinations”. A high level of vaccination coverage is “a crucial pillar” in order to be able to afford relaxation.
