The seven-day incidence of coronavirus continues to rise.
According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) this Monday morning, it is now 17.8 nationwide.
The previous day the value was 17.5 and at the latest low on July 6th it was 4.9.
The health authorities in Germany reported 847 new corona infections to the RKI within one day.
For comparison: a week ago the value was 958 infections.
The incidence has so far been the basis for many corona restrictions in the pandemic, for example as part of the federal emergency brake that expired at the end of June.
In the future, other values such as hospital admissions are to be taken into account to a greater extent.
According to the new information, a death was recorded across Germany within 24 hours.
The number of people who died with or with a proven infection with the Sars-CoV-2 virus rose to 91,660.
The RKI has counted 3,772,109 detected infections with Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic.
The actual total number is likely to be significantly higher, as many infections are not detected.
The RKI stated the number of those who had recovered at 3,656,300.
Disadvantages for the unvaccinated?
In the discussion on how more people could be induced to vaccinate, the SPD parliamentary group leader Rolf Mützenich did not rule out disadvantages for unvaccinated people. "Private providers can of course grant benefits to those who have been vaccinated or recovered," he told the Rheinische Post. Government agencies would have to offer their services to everyone equally, but there too, hygiene concepts or corona tests could result in disadvantages for unvaccinated people.
However, these are not exclusive rights for people with a corona vaccination, emphasized Mützenich.
“I consider exclusive rights to be the wrong term because previously restricted basic rights are valid again.” He does not currently consider legal amendments to be necessary: “I consider it fair that people who behave in solidarity come closer to the normal situation more quickly”.
The Infection Protection Act gives this in its current version.
The Green Chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock had previously described disadvantages for unvaccinated people as legitimate.
If everyone has received a vaccination offer, it cannot be ruled out that people who have been vaccinated can do more things than those who cannot be vaccinated despite the possibility, ”said the Greens co-boss of the Tagesspiegel.
According to a survey by the opinion research institute Insa, only about one in four unvaccinated people in Germany still wants to be vaccinated against the corona virus. As reported by Bild am Sonntag, 54 percent of those who have not yet accepted a vaccination offer also generally do not want to be vaccinated. The main reason given by the majority of those who refused to vaccinate was a lack of trust in the vaccines.
