Germany warns of Covid-19 winter wave

Germany warns of Covid-19 winter wave

Berlin, Nov 24 (Prensa Latina) The German Health Minister, Karl Lauterbach, predicted today an increase of Covid-19 infections in the winter, in declarations to the regional radio station BR.

Luaterbach expressed his disagreement with ‘the rush of the federal states to relax regulations in the fight against the pandemic’.

The minister also referred to the thousand people dying every week due to the disease and criticized the intention of Bavaria and Schleswig-Holstein to abolish, within a few weeks, the obligation of wearing masks in public transport .

The figures provided by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the government’s infectious disease control agency, show an unstable infection curve. Experts say there is a high number of unrecorded cases, mainly because not all infected persons undergo a PCR test, and only positive tests are included in the statistics.
