On Wednesday, Germany recorded 112,323 new COVID-19 cases, a new single-day high, as the health minister stated that the peak had not yet been reached and that mandatory vaccination should be implemented by May.

The news: The number of COVID-19 infections in Germany has already reached 8,186,850, according to the Robert Koch Institute for Infectious Diseases (RKI). On Wednesday, the dead toll increased by 239 to 116,081.

  • The highly contagious Omicron variety increased Germany’s seven-day incidence rate to 584.4 cases per 100,000 individuals, according to Health Minister Karl Lauterbach, who predicted the wave will peak in a few weeks.

What he said: “I believe we will hit the high of the wave in mid-February, and then the number of cases may reduce again, but we haven’t reached the peak yet,” Lauterbach said late Tuesday to RTL television.

  • Lauterbach estimated that the current number of unreported cases could be two times higher than previously estimated statistics.
  • He believes that mandatory vaccination should be implemented as soon as feasible, in April or May, to avoid another wave of diseases with new variations in the autumn.
