Vaccinations protect more and more older people in Germany. According to experts, other groups are now particularly at risk. An analysis in the video shows how old the people are who die from or with the virus.
The number of infections in Germany has been rising significantly again since mid-February, the incidence values exceed the 100 mark, and the Corona emergency brake is threatening in many places. At the same time, however, the death rate is falling, especially among the oldest citizens. The main reason for this is likely to be the progress in the vaccination campaign, which prioritizes the elders.
Experts such as epidemiologist Karl Lauterbach warn, however, that in a third wave, people between 50 and 80 years of age are at risk. Many of them have not yet received a vaccination, but are considered too old for a largely mild or even asymptomatic course. t-online has evaluated current data from the Robert Koch Institute. The animation clearly shows that worrying trends are not only emerging in the oldest age groups.
