The MEGA lockdown is just around the corner - but a number in the corona chaos gives hope.
Positive news is not the order of the day - but it does exist. Right before the impending MEGA lockdown, there is positive news, because a number finally gives people some hope ...
Before MEGA lockdown: number as low as not for a long time
The corona infection numbers, the R value or the seven-day incidence - despite all the measures, they have given us little hope of an improvement in the situation recently. After the infection numbers had been mixed up by the holidays at the end of 2020, the numbers - even if not entirely reliable due to late reports and test fluctuations - were still horrendously high. Depressing result: the lockdown was extended.

On Friday (January 15th) 22,400 new infections were reported by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). That is still a lot and in October we would have been shocked, but as is well known, the line of suffering shifts with the horror news. But as high as this number of new infections is - it gives hope.
Because in Germany there have not been so few new infections on a Friday - with the exception of Christmas and New Year - since November 6, 2020. Are we about to get better? An exciting question.
Does the hard lockdown work? This corona number is also falling.
Actually, the current numbers should tell us how the travel traffic around Christmas time and New Year's Eve affects infections. At the moment, it seems like at least there isn't going to be any deterioration. The seven-day incidence has also at least decreased somewhat in the last few days, but is still very high in Germany. So if the numbers give hope - why an even harder lockdown?
corona infections: how often long-term damage can be expected!

Despite the hard lockdown that has been going on since mid-December, the number of new infections every day remains at a high level. On Friday, January 8th, 31,849 new cases were reported, and there was a new high of 1188 deaths within 24 hours.
Very simple: It is the fear that the corona mutations from South Africa and Great Britain will spread. While the mutation from Great Britain was detected in Germany as early as December, the virus mutations introduced from South Africa could only be found in tests in the past few days - in the Zollernalb district (Baden-Württemberg, 6 cases) and in Bottrop (North Rhine-Westphalia, 1 case).
Should relaxations now be made, the virus mutations could spread faster - and because they are more aggressive, but the free intensive care beds in Germany are still rare and so the numbers will not rise again, the government will probably opt for even tougher measures. The next few days will show how this looks.
