how high the peak values ​​fail, depends on the modeling of the assumed vaccine ratio and the question of whether people change their behavior and reduce contacts : Higher vaccine ratios and behavioral changes make the curves clearly flatten. However, such modeling is subject to several uncertainties.

As a recommendations for action, the RKI lists a "successful vaccination campaign", "Classic Infection Precautions of Health Offices" and the targeted use of measures. This includes, for example, to plan up refresh vaccinations in particular for older and risk groups.

with a view to schools and kitas, the RKI points out, among other things, that structural, structural, organizational and technical measures "intensified and completed until the opening after the summer holidays".

The RKI pronounced the basic rules against Corona such as a distance, hygiene, mask, ventilation and corona warning app. The paper states through organizational measures such as the ability to work and subscriber limits for events should continue to reduce the number of "infectious contacts".
