The Robert Koch National Institute of Epidemiology said today that in Germany, the seven-day incidence has fallen below 100 for the first time since the end of March.
Throughout Germany, a total of 11,336 new coronavirus cases have been reported in the past 24 hours, and the incidence has dropped from 103.6 yesterday to 96.5.
In events below 100, stricter measures will no longer be implemented, such as prohibiting going out at night.
Despite the positive trend of reducing new infections, German Health Minister Jens Spahn (Jens Spahn) warned that the epidemic has not yet been defeated.
Spahn said on Friday: “The next six weeks will be decisive for the situation in July or August.”
He warned of the trend of opening up terraces for dining facilities and the dangers of other concessions announced by the federal provinces.
Today, after Bavaria and other northern federal states (such as Schleswig-Holstein), the city of Berlin also announced the opening of the terrace from the long weekend of Pentecost until the end of next week.
Spahn recommends opening business only when the incidence rate is below 50, which currently applies to a few areas in Germany.
The federal states not only called for a steady decline in the incidence rate, but also called for progress in the vaccination process.
In Germany, 35% of citizens received the first dose of the vaccine, and 10% of both doses were vaccinated.
Foreign Secretary Heiko Maas (Heiko Maas) made a recommendation to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday. He said that this year not only can cross-border travel for vaccinated people, but also cross-border travel for people who have not yet been immunized .
At the same time, he ruled out the possibility of reorganizing the return of German tourists from disturbed countries, just like the first wave of pandemics in 2020. The country deteriorated drastically. “Mass said.
As of yesterday, an effective regulation stipulates that people who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus and those who have just been tested for coronavirus no longer have to comply with the ten-day quarantine after returning to the country.
This only applies to countries that are known to be at risk. For high-risk countries that still include Croatia, quarantine obligations are still required after returning to Germany. After five days, if the coronavirus test result is negative, the 10-day quarantine can be terminated.
