China News Agency, Berlin, November 19 (Reporter Peng Dawei) The German disease control agency announced on the 19th that the new crown incidence index reached 340.7, which has been the 12th consecutive day since the outbreak of the country’s extreme value. On the same day, the state of Bavaria, where the epidemic was particularly severe, announced that it would implement measures to “close the city” in many counties with an incidence index of more than 1,000 in the state.

The German disease control agency Robert Koch Institute announced that the number of new confirmed cases and the number of new deaths were 52,970 and 201 respectively. As of that day, a total of 5,248,291 were diagnosed and 98,739 had died. Among them, the country’s official “accumulated number of newly confirmed cases per 100,000 people in seven days” (incidence rate index) used to monitor the severity of the epidemic rose to 340.7 that day. There are 78 new patients requiring ICU intensive care treatment, bringing the total number to 3509. As of that day, Germany had received 116.8 million doses of the new crown vaccine, and a total of 56.4 million people had been fully vaccinated, accounting for about 67.9% of the country’s total population.

Bavaria is one of the most severely affected states in Germany. The governor of the state Zede announced a series of measures to upgrade the state’s epidemic prevention efforts on the same day, including suspending the traditional Christmas market that was about to open, closing bars, clubs and other places, and requiring the catering industry to close early in the evening. For counties with a new crown incidence index higher than 1,000, the state will require these counties to implement “closure” measures, which means that local public life will be restricted to a minimum again.

As of that day, the prevalence index of at least eight counties including Rotar-In County had exceeded 1,000, and three counties including Altertin had approached 1,000. Rotal-In County, with the highest index, has reached 1423.6, which is more than four times the German average. The index of Berchtesgadenland County, where the famous scenic spot Königssee is located, also reached 1120.1.

Since Austria, the main neighboring country of the German-speaking region, has announced the implementation of a nationwide “city closure” measure on the same day, whether Germany, which has the same serious epidemic situation, will follow up has also aroused everyone’s concern. According to the German “Daily Mirror” report, the German Minister of Health, Spane, said at a press conference in Berlin that day that it is necessary for Germany to implement additional social restrictions, such as the targeted “cities lockdown” for those who have not been vaccinated. As for whether Germany will choose to implement a nationwide “city lockdown” again like Austria did, he responded: “The current situation we are in cannot rule out any possible options.”
