The federal states with the highest utilities are the city-states of Berlin (2.87 euros), Bremen (2.79) and Hamburg (2.75), followed by Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia. In the East German federal states and Rhineland-Palatinate, the utilities are cheaper: In Rhineland-Palatinate they were on average at 2.29 euros, in Saxony-Anhalt at 2.27 euros and in Thuringia at 2,22 euros per square meter.

Vaccine hesitancy is a global crisis. Research suggests that declines in trust are to blame.South Africa, the country where the variant was first reported, did receive vaccines far too late, partly because wealthy countries did not donate enough doses and pharmaceutical companies refused to share their technology.
