tourists return to Egypt

 tourists return to Egypt sunny morning in a beach club in April, somewhere two hours drive south of Hurghada at the Red Sea. The high dining room of the hotel, where you can take hundreds of breakfast at the usual times, lies in the dark. A few guests sneak around the stainless steel warm holder. Outside at the pool with slide: No children in sight. Below on the beach leans a promoter, which otherwise organizes diving and snorkeling trips, on one of the empty berths.

The seven-day incidence continues to rise to 10.0 out of 9.4 the day before. Despite the increase in positive tests, Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier excludes a renewed Corona-Lockdown in Germany.

"New Lockdown would be devastating"

Despite the increase in the Corona incidence, Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier excludes a new Corona-Lockdown in Germany.

The Minister of Economics currently does not see any need for further action against the coronavirus: "As long as no overload of the health system threatens, there is no reason for new measures or even a lockdown." Vaccinated or younger people usually have no symptoms at an infection. Also, the intensive care capacity in Germany is far from its utilization border.

However, Altmaier holds the course of the vaccination campaign for too slow. "We have to speed up the vaccination campaign again," he asked. "Wherever people meet publicly, whether in the beer garden or pedestrian zone, vaccinations should be offered." The CDU politician also pleaded that "mobile vaccination teams appeal to people in cafes and restaurants and vaccinate directly on site".

completely vaccinated against the virus were 45.9 percent of the population until Friday in Germany according to the RKI. At least one vaccine dose was therefore 59.7 percent.
