Status: 02/23/2021 1:00 p.m.

 The  Corona crisis team is currently providing information about the current developments in the pandemic in Lower Saxony at the weekly Corona press conference. broadcasts live at this point.

At the weekly press conference, Claudia Schröder, deputy head of the Corona crisis team, presents the current Corona numbers. Government spokeswoman Anke Pörksen sits at her side. After a downward trend that lasted for weeks, the seven-day incidence per 100,000 population rose last and is falling very little, if at all. This is also likely to be related to a large outbreak in the Osnabrück ice cream factory Froneri and increasing numbers of infections in a few counties.

How big is the proportion of mutations in Lower Saxony?

In this context, the crisis team may also return to the question of what role virus mutations are currently playing in Lower Saxony. According to a random sample, 40 percent of infections in the Hanover region are due to the British mutation B.1.1.7. © The  mutant also dominates the outbreak at the ice cream maker Froneri.

Again criticism of appointments for vaccinations

In addition, the press conference should also be about vaccination again. How fast are the counties making progress? When can the second priority group vaccinations begin? In the meantime, there is renewed criticism of the appointment allocation: © The  Nienburg district wants to inoculate thousands of AstraZeneca cans, but cannot give appointments to under 65-year-olds because the country’s hotline rejects all callers who are younger than 80 years old. In addition, some hospitals had recently suspended vaccinations with the AstraZeneca vaccine because several employees had called in sick after being vaccinated with flu-like symptoms.
