The next Corona wave is rolling in and is currently hitting the youth in particular. Starting Saturday, people will be “vaccinated” against the virus.

Is the corona pandemic over now? “No,” would probably have to be the answer after just one look at the latest data and values. With testing levels significantly lower than a year ago, 1524 new Corona cases were reported Thursday. A total of 172 infected people are currently being treated in provincial hospitals. Most notable, according to the medical staff, is that 92.9 percent of Corona patients in intensive care units and 93 percent in standard units are not fully immunized.

The highest incidence of proven infection is among compatriots between the ages of five and 14. This also emerges from the most current report of the prognosis consortium, according to the daily newspaper “Krone.” “To what extent the increase in the number of cases can be attributed to a change in testing behavior, the end of the vacations or epidemiological reasons, however, is still unclear,” it continues.

Call for vaccination

“The pandemic is not over, even if we all wish it were. It is therefore important to pay attention to one’s vaccination protection and to take precautions to protect oneself against infectious diseases,” emphasizes Health Regional Councillor Ulrike Königsberger-Ludwig. To save more humans from a heavy course, therefore – once again – to the inoculation one calls.

The vaccine adapted to the dominant BA.4/BA.5 virus will be available starting Saturday. Those vaccinated three times who have also had a confirmed omicron infection and are under 60 years of age are recommended six months apart, and those of older age and risk are advised four months apart.
