The expert council of the federal government complains about the poor information situation in the fight against the Omicron variant. “At the moment, Germany is primarily using foreign studies, for example from Great Britain, Denmark and the USA, to assess the omicron variant,” says a new Corona paper from Saturday evening, which is available to the Handelsblatt.

Although these data are of great value for the assessment of the current situation and potential scenarios, their transferability to the local situation is limited, which implies the possibility of incorrect assessments, the experts write.

The expert council includes the virologists Hendrik Streeck (44) and Christian Drosten (49).
