Lower Saxony: half of the funds for protection in schools called up

Of the 20 million euros made available by Lower Saxony’s Ministry of Culture for Corona protective equipment in schools, half have now been called up. As the Ministry announced in Hanover, applications with a total volume of 10.2 million euros have so far been received. This includes plexiglass protective walls, masks for students and teachers and, in exceptional cases, air filter systems. © The  education and science union (GEW) recently called for a tenfold increase in the corresponding funds. In addition to reducing the workload, numerous schools need FFP2 masks, air purification devices and technical equipment, according to state chairwoman Laura Pooth. In many places, the schools have made advance payments, which the country must now quickly compensate, said Pooth.

RKI: More new infections and deaths than a week ago

© The  health authorities in Germany reported 7,676 new corona infections to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within one day. In addition, 145 new deaths among infected people were registered, according to figures from the RKI. A week ago today, there were 6,114 new infections and 218 new deaths. On Sundays, 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 nationwide is 60.2 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants – and thus higher than the previous day (57.8). © The  RKI gave the nationwide seven-day R-value as of Saturday afternoon as 1.07 (previous day 1.01). That is the highest value in several weeks. This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect 107 more people.
