RKI expects more corona intensive care patients

-

According to the Robert Koch Institute’s weekly report, pressure to contract corona remains high across all age groups. An increase in intensive care patients is expected.


The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) expects an increase in corona patients who need to be treated in the intensive care unit. The RKI weekly report said that even though the nationwide seven-day incidence has dropped slightly recently, the pressure of infection remains high across all age groups.

For this reason, “hospitalizations, increase in intensive care treatments and deaths can be expected in the coming weeks, especially in advanced age groups”.

RKI: Older people are still particularly at risk

The number of people treated with the diagnosis of Covid 19 in intensive care units continued to increase. On Wednesday, the number of cases rose to 1,587. According to the information received, there were still 1330 in the previous week. The death toll is now just over 400 per week.

People over the age of 80 “continue to be most affected by severe disease progression,” according to the report. Here, too, the incidence is increasing. The number of Covid-19 outbreaks continued to increase, both in medical treatment centers and in elderly and nursing homes.

RKI: Sideways move instead of downtrend

RKI announced that the omicron sub-variant BA.5, which has been dominant in Germany since mid-June, has almost completely replaced other variants with 89 percent last week. Shares of BA.2 and BA.4 variants continued to decline.

Meanwhile, RKI is still not making a clear statement for the Corona summer wave. “Furthermore, a sideways movement rather than a downward trend can be observed,” the weekly report says.

The RKI also calls for “strictly” adherence to recommendations to avoid infection. Values ​​for acute respiratory diseases in the general population, such as the number of doctor visits, are still higher in this period than in previous years.
