Coronavirus has reached a new level with mutations


The warning that the relaxation of restrictive measures to address it coronavirus At this stage, it is irresponsible because it will increase the number of cases, said the president of the World Medical Association, Frank Ulrich Montgomery.

According to Montgomery, “anyone who talks about relaxing meters in times of rising R values ​​it acts completely irresponsibly. For such steps it is too early. With each relaxation there will be a significant increase in cases».

“The seven-day R index per 100,000 inhabitants was 1.1 on Sunday afternoon, up from 1.07 the previous day, according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). “This means that 100 infected people can theoretically infect another 110 people,” he said in an interview published today in the newspapers of the Funke Journalists’ Group, as broadcast by the Athens News Agency.

Commenting on the recent increase in the incidence of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week and the once-high R-rate, the president of the World Medical Association said: “The number of cases shows where we are today. The value R indicates where we are going. With a value well above 1.0 exponential growth is threatened again and that is exactly what is happening now. The virus has reached a new level with its mutations. Not only is it more contagious, but it can also lead to more serious illness».

Health authorities in Germany reported RKI 4369 new coronavirus infections overnight, according to data released Monday. On Monday, the number of cases reported by the RKI is usually lower because fewer diagnostic tests are performed over the weekend.
