Other special rules in Lower Saxony prisons

While the mask requirement has dropped in many places in Lower Saxony, it still applies in many places to employees and inmates of correctional institutions, said a spokesman for the Ministry of Justice in Hanover. Detainees who are outside their cells must therefore wear FFP2 masks for the first 14 days following their first admission. All prisoners in Lower Saxony must also wear masks during transport, the spokesperson explained. Masks are also mandatory for visitors. In addition, there are different rules for vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors in the JVA Hannover, for example. Due to the infectious situation, visits are not yet possible in all prisons.


Lower Saxony: RKI gives an incidence of 733.2

Lower Saxony did not transmit any current data to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for four consecutive days over Easter. The seven-day incidence is currently given as significantly lower than before the holidays due to the lack of new infections. According to the RKI, it is currently 733.2 in Lower Saxony. The last significant figures before Easter were published on Good Friday: on that day, the seven-day incidence in Lower Saxony was almost twice as high, at 1,327.3. A spokesman for the Lower Saxony National Health Office (NLGA) said at the start of the weekend that the Easter figures “could not be interpreted meaningfully”. That won’t change until Wednesday.

Intensive care doctor: No one knows how Corona will develop

The head of the intensive care clinic at the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf, Stefan Kluge, considers the further development of the corona virus to be uncertain. “No expert can currently say with certainty which variant we will have in the fall,” said Kluge, who is also a member of the presidency of the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (DIVI), the Funke media group. “However, we need to be prepared that another variant may emerge, leading to higher disease severity than is currently the case with the omicron variant.” Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) drew criticism over the Easter weekend by warning of a possible “killer variant” of the corona virus. Kluge said: “It is inappropriate to describe a corona variant as a ‘killer variant’.” There are other infections where the death rate is significantly higher than was the case with Covid-19 so far.


RKI: 22,483 new corona cases recorded nationwide – incidence at 669.9

National seven-day incidence continued to decline. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) this morning gave the value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week at 669.9. The day before the value was 808.8, a week ago it was 1,087.2 (previous month: 1,735.0). The German health authorities have reported to the RKI 22,483 new corona infections in one day – yesterday there were 20,482, last Tuesday 162,790. According to reports, another 7 deaths were recorded throughout Germany within 24 hours. According to the RKI, the number of people who have died or been involved in confirmed Sars-CoV-2 infection since the start of the pandemic has risen to 132,960.

When considering the values, it should be taken into account that individual countries do not report their data (in full) every day of the week – weekends and holidays, for example. Lower Saxony, Baden-Württemberg, Brandenburg and Saxony as well as Bremen at Easter. This leads to late registrations on the following days. A comparison of Daily Values ​​is becoming increasingly difficult. Experts have also assumed for some time that there will be a high number of cases not registered by the RKI – due to the overload of work of the health authorities and the fact that not all infected people undergo a PCR test. Only these count in the statistics.
