According to a media report, Berlin’s medical officers unanimously demand that loosening no longer be linked to general incidence values.
It is “not expedient to link containment measures to incidences of 20/35/50”, according to the “Tagesspiegel” in a statement by all twelve medical officers for the Berlin Senate Chancellery. Instead, the medical professionals propose “intensive measures of infection prevention” for the elderly and the sick and, at the same time, a moderation of the measures for other groups such as school children.
The incidences are dependent on test capacities and people’s willingness to test.
“This leads to fluctuations that do not reflect the infectious situation,” the “Tagesspiegel” quotes the doctors. An incidence analysis based on age groups is necessary as an “early warning system”.
In Berlin there are a total of twelve medical officers, each responsible for a district of the capital. You work in the health authorities and therefore fight against Corona on the front line.
From the circle of medical professionals it is now said that there is a “big difference” whether with a seven-day incidence of 50 people over 80 vaccinated and all infected children are symptom-free children – or whether risk groups are particularly affected.
The n you have to align the political measures.
So-called “NoCovid” strategies, as developed by leading scientists, are sharply criticized by the medical officers. It is said that these “do not do justice to the realities of life”.
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.
Today, Monday, in Berlin – as in many other federal states – classes one to three are returning to face-to-face classes. However, the compulsory attendance is suspended, the lessons take place in an alternating model.
The incidence in Berlin has not fallen for days, but has stagnated. On Sunday it was 56.5 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week.
