Germany in 'very worrying' situation as unvaccinated drive surge in Covid cases

ベルリン German health officials have warned the country is in the grips of A “とても心配” スパイク COVID-19 cases and that unvaccinated people face severe risks, after it registered a new record in daily infections for the second day running.

より多い 37,000 new infections were reported on Friday, 3,000 more than the mark on Thursday which had, にとって 24 時間, been the worst rate registered since the pandemic began.
The sharp upward trends come amid a vaccine rollout that is slower than many other large European nations.
    Late on Thursday the Robert Koch Institute (以上の増加), 以上の増加, described current developments as ”とても心配” and raised its risk assessment for unvaccinated people from “高い” に “very high.
      The situation has also changed for vaccinated people, レポートは言った. “For the fully vaccinated, the risk is assessed as moderate, but increasing due to rising infection rates.
        周り 67% of Germans have been fully inoculated against the virus, while a third are either unvaccinated or have received only one dose.
        Germany’s new wave mirrors a surge of Delta variant cases across Europe, with the situation especially worrying towards the east of the continent, where vaccination coverage is generally lower.
          A World Health Organization (WHO) executive said Thursday that Europe’s battle against the virus is awarning shotfor the rest of the world.
          It’s very important to reflect that Europe represents over half of the global cases in the last week, but that trend can turn,” Mike Ryan, executive director of the agency’s health emergencies program, said in Geneva. “We only have to look at the roller coaster epidemiologic curve to know that when you’re coming down the mountain, you’re usually about to go back up another one.
          I think it’s a warning shot for the world to see what’s happening in Europe despite the availability of vaccination,” 彼は言った. “And I think we all have to double down and recommit ourselves to doing everything we can to be the last person in the chain of transmission.
          The agency’s regional director for Europe had earlier on Thursday outlined out a potentially dire winter for the continent. Hans Kluge warned Europe isonce again the epicenterof the virus and said that, according to one projection, the region could see 500,000 more deaths by February.
          We are at another critical point of pandemic resurgence,” Kluge said. He blamed two factors for the new wave: the relaxation of Covid-19 measures, and a lack of vaccination coverage in the Balkans and towards the east of the continent.
            German Health Minister Jens Spahn on Wednesday warned that stricter measures are needed for those who refuse to get vaccinated. Spahn also told reporters at a press conference on Thursday that he was asked for his vaccination certificate in Rome during the G20 more often in one day than in Germany in four weeks.
            Spahn added that Germany was facing a “大規模” pandemic among unvaccinated people.
