The epidemic situation report released by the German Interdisciplinary Association of Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (DIVI) in cooperation with the German disease control agency that day gave the above-mentioned number of critically ill patients. The defined critically ill patients refer to those infected with the new coronavirus who need to enter the intensive care (ICU) ward for treatment. Since the end of March, this number has continued to rebound rapidly. On the 4th of this month, the number of severely ill patients with the new crown in Germany exceeded 4,000, the highest value since February this year. Experts from the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine had issued a warning at the time that if the epidemic continues the current development trend, the German medical system may be overloaded in less than four weeks.
German Minister of Health Spahn said in an interview with German TV 1 that the current decisive role in the fight against the epidemic is not to argue that “the Federation should play a greater role, or the coordination of the states is more important.” “The key is to achieve results.”
Spain said that the federal government and all 16 states now need to act in unison and unite as much as possible, on the one hand, to ensure that the country’s “average number of new diagnoses per 100,000 people in seven days” can be reduced to Below 100, on the other hand, when the value exceeds 100, it can ensure that strong epidemic prevention measures are taken. Shi Pan emphasized that vaccinations and large-scale testing alone are not enough to contain the current raging third wave of the epidemic. (End)
