From Sunday with the exception of some overseas areas, France will no longer be managed by the Federal Government as a Corona high risk area.As the last French region in Europe, the PROVECE-Alpes-Côte d'Azur area popular with tourists will be deleted from the risk list, as the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) announced.This eliminates all quarantine rules for those who travel from this region.

The EU country Slovenia, on the other hand, is now classified as a high-risk area.Those who are not completely vaccinated or recovered from there will have to quarantine for ten days from Sunday.A liberation is only possible after five days with a negative test.Slovenia currently has the Council Presidency of the European Union and is organizing a western balcangic summit in early October, in which Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) is also to take part.From Sunday, the small Balkans will be the only EU member that is classified as a high-risk area.

Other new high -risk areas are Ethiopia and Burundi in Africa as well as St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean.Japan and the West African Senegal are also deleted by the risk list.

The countries and regions with a particularly high risk of infection are classified as high -risk areas.But not only the number of infections are decisive.Other criteria are the pace of spreading the virus, the burden on the health system or missing data on the Corona situation.

According to official corona statistics, more than 202,200 people have died of Covid-19.However, a high number of unreported cases is assumed.Other statistics from the authorities also allow this conclusion.According to the Interfax agency, the Kremlin had only excluded a nationwide lockdown - restrictions at the regional level.

Nationwide, the RKI indicated the number of hospital admissions per 100,000 inhabitants and week at 1.58 - a decline by 0.3 compared to the previous week.This incidence is particularly high in Bremen (3.38), Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate (1.88) and Bavaria (1.84).Low values report the Saarland (0.81), Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Brandenburg (both 0.87).It should be noted that these values underestimate the actual situation somewhat because some patients are still registered.

This 7-day incidence has also been declining for two weeks.However, since more and more people are vaccinated, the meaningfulness of this value decreases.Therefore, the focus should be on the position of the clinics.In the Infection Protection Act it says: "In particular, the number of persons recorded in a hospital in a hospital in a hospital in terms of the Coronavirus disease-2019 (CORONAVIRUS INSCIALIENTIONS in each 100,000 inhabitants within seven days."It is up to the federal states to determine critical thresholds from which further restrictions apply.

10.48 p.m.: WHO recommends preventive therapy for covid-risk patients for the first time

For the first time, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a medication as a prevention against a severe Covid 19 disease in infected risk patients.She refers to studies that the antibody combination of Casirivimab and Imdevimab from the US company Regeneron and the Swiss company Roche can improve their chances of survival.The WHO published its new recommendation in the "British Medical Journal".

In Germany, this antibody combination is already used in special cases for corona patients.Many countries that cannot make any risk reviews themselves are waiting for such WHO recommendations.Aid organizations usually only use funds recommended by the WHO.

The WHO now recommends the administration of the funds in Corona patients with previous illnesses, which therefore run the risk of falling hard to develop covid-19 and then treated in intensive care units.Likewise, seriously ill people should be treated with this who have no antibodies against Covid-19.

The Munich Knigge trainer Petra Marzin believes little of the widespread "ghetto fist" as a Corona-compliant greeting."I find the ghetto fist that you can now see with many politicians terribly," Marzin told the Evangelical Press Service (EPD).The fist has something aggressive and somewhat exaggerated young people: "It just doesn't fit everyone and not for every situation."

Marzin was also not convinced of the elbow or foot check.She could imagine that a lot will be made about eye contact and a smile in the future.The big question is now which welcome form will now prevail as "normality" at the end of the pandemic."We are currently in a transition phase," emphasized Marzin.Whether shaking hands comes back in the form like before Corona - Marzin is not so sure.You could imagine that it would be less.

By the way, shaking hands can be rejected politely and with a clear conscience, emphasized Marzin.About the form of greeting is all still unsure.In order to dissolve the embarrassment, you can react with humor or simply ask in the group how to handle it: "You just have to improvise a bit, because: rules are not everything."

07.03 p.m.: Spahn expects to comply with quarantine even without continued wages

Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) has again defended the expiry of the continued payment of wages for unvaccinated in Corona quartanta: "Vaccination protects health. And now it also saves money. Many should convince," said Spahn of the "Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung".

It cannot be assumed that the quarantine requirements would now be broken in many ways, which the SPD health expert Karl Lauterbach warned against others: "Anyone who does not follow quarantine requirements commits an administrative offense. And this is checked and punished with sensitive punishments," said Spahn:"I can't imagine that many will risk that."

The health ministers of the federal states had agreed on Wednesday that unvaccinated in quarantine should no longer receive compensation for the loss of earnings at the latest from November 1st.There should be exceptions for those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons and have a certificate for it.For citizens, for whom there is still no public vaccination recommendation, they should continue to be paid.

06.24 a.m.: US authorities argue about admission of refresher vaccinations

In the United States, two authorities have made contradictory recommendations to admit refreshment vaccinations.An expert committee of the US health authority CDC recommended refreshing with the vaccine from Biontech/Pfizer for people over the age of 65 and people with a higher risk of serious illness - but not for employees in professions with a high risk of infection.

The CDC boss Rochelle Walensky still has to encourage the recommendations, but it is expected to give it green light.On Wednesday, the Medicinal Authority FDA had approved the Pfizer vaccine for refreshing even in employees with high infection risk such as "Employees in the healthcare system, teachers and daycare staff, employees in grocery stores and in homeless homes or prisons".

However, the CDC committee voted nine to six votes against the admission of this group of people in the vaccination campaign.This reflects the split expert opinion in the question of the meaningfulness of refresher vaccinations for younger groups of people.

According to the FDA permit, around 13 million people in the United States, who are at least 65 years old and receive Pfizer vaccine more than six months ago, are now entitled to a refreshing vaccination.This is significantly less than the government of President Joe Biden originally intended for the refresher campaign.This actually wanted to start booster vaccinations at the beginning of the week with all recipients of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine.

One reason for the sluggish recovery from the consequences of Corona pandemic is the still dramatically low vaccination rate of only around five percent.For example, this leads to severe impairments in health care and continuing school closings, which also worsens the career prospects of people in the long term.Overall, the pandemic drove almost 30 million people into extreme poverty.

Our world has never been in greater danger and never split. We are facing the greatest cascade of crisis of our lifetime."

The unequal distribution of vaccine against the coronavirus, for example, described Guterres as obscenity."A majority of the richer world is vaccinated. But more than 90 percent of Africans are still waiting for their first dose. This is a moral charges of the state of our world," said Guterres."We passed the scientific test. But we failed in ethics."

In view of crises such as pandemic and climate change, the world is not sufficiently together, the UN chief complained."Instead of humility in view of these epic challenges, we see a presumption. Instead of the path of solidarity, we are in a dead end of destruction."

Nevertheless, he still has hope, said Guterres."The problems we have created are problems that we can solve. Humanity has shown that we can achieve great things when we work together."

8:41 p.m.: Epidemiologist from Kries against the obligation to vaccinate: Would be "ineffective"

The pediatrician and epidemiologist Rüdiger von Kries spoke out against the introduction of a corona vaccination on BR television. There are both doubters and hardliners among the people who were not at the moment. The hardliners will never be convinced. But those who are doubts would be offended with an obligation to vaccinate, said von Kries in the evening in the BR24 Rundschau. "The decisive factor is convincing. A vaccination is something that, frankly, is never justified. Not because it would be unethical, but because it is ineffective in a freedom society in which we fortunately live." The epidemiologist who himself is a member The constant vaccination commission (STIKO) recommends that young people are vaccinated against Corona. However, he also emphasizes that vaccination is even more important for adults. The epidemiologist believes that parents were generally afraid of long -term further effects. This is very unlikely. "We saw a problem at the time when the flu shot that we had not expected. Now it is the case that the vaccination against covid has been done with the mRNA vaccines for a good six months. If something really burned, we should have noticed that. "
