Berlin, Feb. 6 (CNS) — Germany’s disease control agency on Tuesday announced 133,173 new cases of COVID-19.As of today, the cumulative number of confirmed cases in the country had exceeded 11 million.In response to calls from some of the country’s federal states to relax quarantine measures, German Federal Health Minister Lauterbach and Economy Minister Habeck said on the same day that “unsealing” should not be taken too early.The Robert Koch Institute of Disease Control and Prevention in Germany announced on Friday 133,173 new confirmed cases and 41 new deaths.The number of confirmed cases in Germany has reached 1,1022,590 and the death toll has reached 118,717.The incidence index, which is used by the government to monitor the severity of COVID-19, rose to 1,400.8, the highest since the outbreak.As of Friday noon local time, the total number of patients in intensive care unit was 2,311.As of Monday, Germany has received 166.4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine, and 61.8 million people, or 74.4% of the country’s total population, have been fully vaccinated.45.1 million people, or 54.2 percent of the total population, have received booster shots.As many European countries announced the relaxation of quarantine measures, there are growing calls in Germany to “lift the quarantine.”On the eve of a new round of consultation between the federal government and the states on February 16, Bavaria premier Zede has called for a “phased unlockout” plan, and Raffa premier Delaire also believes that the time has come to discuss “unlockout” at this consultation.The Liberal Democratic Party (FDP), one of the three coalition parties in the current Federal government, also called for an “exit plan” for the quarantine policy.In this regard, Health Minister Lauterbach and Economy Minister Habeck respectively in the German media interview expressed different opinions.Lauterbach told Bild Am Sonntagh that Germany’s strategy had so far been “well executed”, “but if we relax too soon now, then we put the gains at unnecessary risk and could face the risk of new infections and even a further continuation of the current outbreak”.For his part, Harbeck told Funk Media Group that Germany certainly needs a “reset” vision, but it has to happen at the right time.He said the current outbreak, caused by a mutant strain of omicron, had not yet been contained and “we have to watch where it goes.”Disclaimer: This article is reproduced for the purpose of passing on more information.If the source is wrong or violated your legitimate rights and interests, please contact the author with proof of ownership, we will promptly correct, delete, thank you.Email address: newmedia@xxcb.cn
