BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – According to the Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Aid (BBK), a fifth corona wave will not lead to a collapse of critical infrastructures in Germany. “A fifth wave could lead to restrictions, but not to a collapse,” said a spokesman for the office of the editorial network Germany. “There is no reason to assume that. There are reserves. We are not at our wits end.”
In any case, it will probably take until the beginning of the year for Omikron to take full effect in Germany, said the spokesman. He also praised the preparation for the waves so far. “We mastered four waves, which were already powerful, without restrictions – with the exception of the intensive care units.” This is due to the fact that those responsible are prepared for something like this because corresponding plans exist. “The companies were also prepared.”
The corona numbers in Germany have recently fallen, but experts fear an imminent trend reversal due to the more contagious Omikron variant. Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) wants to continue vaccinating over the Christmas holidays and the turn of the year./seb/DP/he
