To this day, no important German politician has spoken openly about this: The second corona wave started in West Germany, but the wave that came from the Czech Republic to Germany developed much greater force. Initially affected - and to this day mainly affected - are districts in the immediate vicinity of the Czech Republic, especially in Saxony, but also Thuringia and Bavaria. Getting the dynamics under control there is also difficult because it is constantly getting new food: across the open border with the Czech Republic. The third wave is now raging there, with an incidence value of 829 the Czech Republic has the second highest 7-day incidence worldwide.
