Doctors warn: take a course on the rules of the crown this fall | News

BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – Leading medical representatives called on the federal government to speed up the definition of corona discharge protection measures in the event of a fall. Faced with the rising number of cases and the new wave expected in the fall, politicians must act quickly, said Frank Ulrich Montgomery, president of the World Medical Association. The medical association Marburger Bund has called for a course to be set for the new version of the crown rules in the Protection Against Holiday Infection Act. In line with the FDP’s will, the bill is to be discussed in the summer, but it will only be corrected after a break in the Bundestag, which ends at the beginning of September. Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) also mentioned this schedule on Friday.

“It would be irresponsible if we fell into the loophole at the end of September,” said Susanne John, president of the association Marburg, of the “Neue Osnabrcker Zeitung” (NOZ). There is a real danger of simultaneous corona waves and flu in late summer or early fall. To prevent health risks, the new infection protection legislation must allow stringent measures to be taken. “We don’t believe in closing schools and kindergartens,” said John. “All other measures, including contact restrictions and the possible closure of bars and clubs, are instruments that belong in the box.” Montgomery warned in Passauer Neue Presse (Saturday): “There can’t be another long, exhausting party-political debate on this subject until the child falls into the well.”

Strong criticism of the current corona policy also came from the Federation of German Industry (BDI). A new corona wave is becoming more and more likely, and there will also be mutations in viruses, BDI chief Siegfried Russwurm said in a newspaper for the Funke media group. “Politicians have entered this situation wide-eyed and have been standing still for two years. It stunned me.

The FDP is initially looking to wait for a report by the expert council on existing corona protection measures to date, due on June 30. “It would be nonsense if politicians would decide to take protective measures before the recommendations of non-party experts are available,” FDP parliamentary group leader Christian Drr. Told Tagesspiegel. However, the chairman of the expert panel, Stefan Huster, warned in “Spiegl” against too high expectations regarding the final report of the commission. Politicians will not be issued any recommendations.

According to Welt am Sonntag, one of the few possible proposals for adjusting the law on protection against infections within the traffic light coalition is the so-called from October to Easter.

There is already a dispute about this. Federal Justice Minister Marco Buschmann apparently does not yet believe that the benefits of the mask requirement have been scientifically proven. “If the state wants to prescribe masks, for example indoors, it has to be evidence-based and proportionate. We will discuss if this is the case when all reports are available,” an FDP politician told the Rheinische Post (Saturday). “Evidence-based,” as Buschmann puts it, that is, based on compiled and assessed scientific knowledge. Montgomery vehemently denied Buschmann: “The scientific evidence for the meaning of mandatory masks and vaccinations” was “overwhelming,” the Funke media group headlines (Saturday).

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported a nationwide seven-day Saturday morning incidence of 445.1. The day before, the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week was 427.8 (previous week: 348.9; previous month: 407.4) was noticeably low because on Corpus Christi (Thursday) some federal states did not send any data to the RKI. Experts have assumed for some time that there will be a large number of cases unregistered by the RKI – mainly because not all infected people have a PCR test performed. Only positive PCR tests count in the statistics. In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to a distortion of the individual daily values./jed/and/mi/DP/men
