Germany has a very high incidence of COVID-19

Germany has had the highest incidence of COVID-19 in a pandemic in recent weeks. The average spread of the coronavirus in Germany continues to rise. The Robert Koch Institute on Saturday, November 20, reported that it amounted to 362.2 cases per 100 thousand people in seven days. A day earlier, this figure was fixed at 340.7, and a week ago - 277.4 (a month ago - 80.4).

Politicians in talks to form a government coalition oppose mandatory vaccinations. As reported by RIA Novosti, the German authorities said that the Germans are either vaccinated against COVID-19, or will die before the end of this winter. The agency refers to AFP and quotes the head of the German Ministry of Health Jens Spahn: “Probably by the end of this winter, as they sometimes cynically say, almost everyone in Germany will be either vaccinated, or cured, or dead,” he said.

Spahn stressed that in Germany in many hospitals there is a "very, very difficult situation." According to the president of the Robert Koch Institute, Lothar Wheeler, there are now more than 500,000 active cases of coronavirus in the country. “All of Germany is a large outbreak region. This is a national emergency,” he stressed.

Earlier it became known that more than 70% of German residents are in favor of mandatory vaccination against coronavirus, this follows from the results of a survey conducted by Civey for the Spiegel publication.

Moreover, all age groups support such a measure. Citizens from 65 years of age are most active in favor of compulsory vaccination (87%), the measure enjoys the least support among the category from 18 to 29 years old (53%).
