Covid-19 Cases May Peak in Mid February
In a statement, German Federal Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach stated that it is important that the Corona virus vaccination obligation is decided by the federal parliament and comes into force quickly, and said, “In order to make an application that still works in the fight against the epidemic and to be successful against a new wave that will come in the autumn, the vaccination obligation will be announced in April. It should be put into effect on or in May,” he said.
Expressing that he expects the Omicron wave to peak in a few weeks, Lauterbach said, “I believe that the Omicron variant will peak in mid-February, and then the number of cases may decrease again. However, we have not reached the peak yet.”
