Significant decrease in the number of participants in the Corona protests in Lower Saxony
Lower Saxony police recorded much fewer demonstrations against coronavirus protection measures in April than in previous months. About 13,000 participants were counted in 242 meetings, the Ministry of the Interior in Hanover announced. That was 54 people per demonstration. A month ago, there were about 30,600 participants in more than 500 meetings. In February, more than 52,000 participants were counted, in January even nearly 90,000. For the month of April, the Ministry of the Interior estimates costs at just over half a million euros based on about 7,200 man-hours. In March, these numbers were even higher, with about 30 thousand man-hours and more than 2.1 million euros in personnel costs.
The infection rate in Lower Saxony drops to 833.6
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported 15,513 new infections in Lower Saxony today. The seven-day infection rate, that is, the number of new infections per 100,000 people in one week, is 833.6 and thus has decreased – yesterday the infection value was 892.9. The RKI index recorded 53 more deaths related to corona. The number of deaths since the beginning of the epidemic has reached 8,842 nationwide.

According to Hamburg’s social authority, the seven-day infection rate in the Hanseatic city was 885.7 yesterday.

The nationwide coronavirus infection rate has fallen below 600 for the first time since January
The nationwide seven-day infection rate for the novel coronavirus has fallen below 600 for the first time since January. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) gives the value for today 591.8 (previous day: 632.2 / previous week: 887.6). The RKI further reported, citing data from health authorities, that the number of new infections reported within 24 hours was 106,631. However, experts have been assuming for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to overwork by health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test. In addition, late registration or transmission problems can distort individual daily values. RKI also announced that 241 new coronavirus-related deaths were reported in the past 24 hours. The total number of corona deaths recorded in Germany reached 135,942.
DKG: The number of Covid patients in clinics is declining
According to the German Hospital Association, the number of Covid patients in German clinics has fallen to its lowest level since the beginning of the fourth wave of Corona with a delta variable. CEO Jas told the German editorial network that there are currently 1,300 Covid patients in intensive care units nationwide – fewer than in September last year. Gass stressed that with the number of infections declining, the situation with staff shortages is declining somewhat. According to him, clinics can now gradually catch up with previously postponed treatments.
Schleswig-Holstein: Short isolation, no further quarantine of contacts
In Schleswig-Holstein, people with coronavirus only have to stay in quarantine for five days from today. The state directs its decree to the new Robert Koch Institute (RKI) recommendations. So free testing after the deadline is no longer necessary, but highly recommended. In addition, the patient must be symptom-free for at least 48 hours before the end of isolation.
It is highly recommended for contact persons, eg from home and school, to reduce contacts independently and check them daily with a rapid antigen test. However, there is no longer a commitment to quarantine. Various rules apply to health care workers, nursing homes, nursing homes, and assisted integration facilities.
The state of Mecklenburg-Vorpomerania will implement the RKI’s recommendation from Friday, and Lower Saxony also wants to adjust its rules this week.
