Chairman of the World Medical Association warns of easing | Free press


After many weeks of the corona lockdown, there are plans for a cautious opening. But at the same time the R-value increases again with the infections. A threatening situation for the head of the World Medical Association.

Berlin (dpa) –  The  chairman of the World Medical Association, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, warns of further easing of the Corona rules: “Anyone who talks about easing in times of rising R values ​​is acting absolutely irresponsibly”.

It is too early for such steps. “With every loosening there will be a significant increase in the numbers,” said the doctor to the newspapers of the Funke media group


 The  nationwide seven-day R-value was 1.10 according to the management report of the Robert Koch Institute on Sunday afternoon (previous day 1.07). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 110 more people. ©

 The  value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago.

With a view to the seven-day incidence, which has recently increased again, i.e. the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week, and the again high R-value, Montgomery warned: “©

 The  incidence value shows where we are currently. ©

 The  R-value shows where we are going. If the value is well above 1.0, there is a risk of exponential growth again – and that is exactly the case now. ” ©

 The  virus has reached a new level with its mutations. Not only is it more contagious, it is also likely to lead to more severe disease processes.


 The  health authorities in Germany last reported 4369 new corona infections to the RKI within one day, according to figures from Monday. On Monday, the number of cases reported by the RKI is usually lower, among other things because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend. ©

 The  seven-day incidence was according to the information on Monday morning nationwide at 61.0 – and thus higher than the previous day (60.2).
