Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Ministry: Corona increase in care "on the screen"

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) recently reported more corona outbreaks in old people's and nursing homes. There are also signs of an increase in MV - albeit at a low level.

Schwerin (dpa/mv) - The corona summer wave is also making itself felt in the care facilities of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania - albeit at a low level so far. According to the latest report from the State Office for Health and Social Affairs (Lagus) from this week, there were 18 active cases of infection and 126 cases in the facilities. A week earlier there were 7 events and 48 cases. "We have that on the screen," said the spokesman for the Ministry of Health, Alexander Kujat, of the German Press Agency.

In the short term, there is a development that calls for mindfulness. "Although we can already see that this is at a very low level." You have to see if the numbers continue to rise. Elsewhere in Germany there is sometimes a fairly sharp increase, said Kujat. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) recently reported, among other things, on increased outbreaks in old people's and nursing homes. The Greifswald bioinformatician Lars Kaderali also pointed out that although the seven-day incidence is plateauing, infections are increasingly being carried to older population groups.

According to Kujat, from the end of August, or at the latest from the beginning of September, more and more mobile vaccination teams will be traveling to care facilities again. In addition, test and mask requirements have never been eliminated here. And the vaccinations paid off. In view of the many infections in the population and the high number of unreported cases, it shows that protective measures in the facilities have an effect. According to the ministry, the northeast has over 500 outpatient care services, more than 220 day care facilities and over 250 full-time care facilities.

The seven-day incidence of registered new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the northeast was given by Lagus on Tuesday afternoon at just under 592.9. A week earlier, the reading was 576.7. Because not all infected people can be tested for a long time, the numbers are only meaningful to a limited extent. According to Kujat, he is also starting from the tip of the iceberg. The seven-day incidence of hospitalizations was 5.7 on Tuesday and 5.4 a week earlier. According to the information, 26 corona patients were last treated in an intensive care unit (previous week 23). In addition, the Lagus reported three more deaths related to the corona virus on Tuesday.
