The end of the fourth wave?
Although the epidemic in Germany has remained fairly stable for several days, coronavirus forecast expert Thorsten Lehr cautions against jumping to conclusions, writes the RND. Lear does not believe that the stagnation in the number of new infections will end the fourth wave of the epidemic. He believes a jump in infections is possible. “We were able to observe this behavior from roughly the incidence curve up until today last year,” he points out.
A year ago, the number of new infections also decreased slightly and held steady, just below the current level, before rising again sharply in late September. “With the current status of the vaccination campaign and the easing of contact restrictions, a similar increase can be expected again in late September and early October,” warns Lear.
The expert explains the stagnation in the number of infections incl. The fact that there are fewer travelers on vacation, and therefore – the infections they bring.
In Germany, 66.6 percent of the population has so far received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, and 62.3 percent of the country’s population has been fully vaccinated.
