(Fighting New Coronary Pneumonia) The number of mutated strains discovered in India has risen in Germany, experts call for vigilance against the risk of the fourth wave of epidemics

  China News Agency, Berlin, May 14 (Reporter Peng Dawei) The latest data from the German disease control agency show that among the newly confirmed cases of the new coronavirus in Germany, the proportion of infected mutated strains found in India is continuing to increase.

Virologists and epidemiologists in the country warned on the 14th that they should be alert to the risk of the fourth wave of outbreaks.

  The German disease control agency announced that the number of new confirmed cases and the number of new deaths were 11,336 and 190 respectively.

According to real-time data from Germany's "Times Online", as of 22:00 local time on the 14th, a total of 3,587,874 people have been diagnosed and 86,591 people have died in Germany.

Up to now, Germany has received 38.6 million doses of vaccine, and 8.82 million people have been fully vaccinated.

  According to data from the CDC, the current new cases in Germany are mainly infected with the B.1.1.7 strain first found in the United Kingdom, while the proportion of cases infected with the B.1.617 strain first found in India accounts for less than 2%. , But in the past few weeks, the proportion of the latter has continued to rise.

  German epidemiologist Lauterbach said on the same day that the risk of the B.1.617 strain should not be underestimated, because the strain is not limited to sporadic cases imported from India, but has already spread in the community in Germany.

  Lauterbach said that the current trend of the epidemic data in Germany is improving, but people should not relax their vigilance. "In order to avoid the fourth wave of epidemics in the fall, we must take preventive measures, especially for returning passengers."

  Streck, a virologist at the University of Bonn, said that the new crown crisis cannot be announced too soon, because this fall may also face a fourth wave of epidemics.

"We must make good use of the time between now and before autumn to optimize the anti-epidemic work."
