Shanghai tightens the reins soon after the end of the lockdown

Just one week after a two-month lockdown ended, the Chinese city of Shanghai announced new mass testing and a curfew. After discovering 11 new infections on Thursday, authorities decided to temporarily close eight districts and test them over the weekend. This means that about 15 million people are no longer allowed to go outside or can move around their surroundings only to a limited extent. The affected areas will be placed under “closed management” for the testing period, China’s state newspaper Global Times reported. After mass testing is complete, neighborhoods in which positive cases have been found are usually cordoned off for an extended period of time. After two months, Shanghai’s economic and financial hub lifted the controversial and at times chaotic full lockdown last Wednesday.

The Lower Saxony State Student Council wishes to retake the compulsory test

The Lower Saxony State Student Council (LSR) supports the reintroduction of compulsory exams in schools after the summer break. This does not have to start at the end of the holiday, but early enough to recognize a possible new wave of infections in the fall, LSR chief Malte Kern of the German news agency said. Suggest one compulsory test per week. Recently, there was a daily obligation to take exams in schools after the Easter holiday, and exams were transferred to electives at the beginning of May. Kern explained that in the current situation, voluntary testing is also sufficient. However, the past two years have shown that the number of infections rises again in cold seasons. Kern warned that schools could also be sources of infection again due to the close contact between many people. The student political representative also called for avoiding distance learning for as long as possible.

The Ministry of Culture indicated that it knows the Corona measures that are working and will use them if necessary. However, it is currently completely open if that is the case and to what extent it will be necessary. “From our point of view, it does not currently make sense to speculate on the details,” a ministry spokesman said. The federal government must first put states in a position to use the tools if the situation changes.

Students continue to seek psychological help

Despite the return to face-to-face teaching, the need for psychological counseling among students remains enormous. “The demand is huge, we can’t really meet it,” says psychotherapist Christian Maurer of the Center for Psycho-Therapeutic Counseling for Universities in Hannover. After two years of teaching online during the Corona pandemic, the majority of students are simply relieved to see fellow students and teachers, using libraries and canteens. A small group that not only fell into a depressive mood, but also fell into an illness, still needed help. In addition, there is a group of socially anxious people, for whom the Internet has been a relief. “They find it especially difficult to go back,” Maurer asserts. For her, college life with lecture halls sometimes full is a challenge. Especially since in some places, such as Leibniz University in Hanover, mask requirements fell after Pentecost. The 3G rule is still in place, but it is no longer under control.

Pandemic and inflation: clinics anticipate high additional costs

Due to the pandemic and high inflation, the German Hospital Association expects additional costs in the billions for clinics in the country. The association expects an unscheduled cost increase of about 1.45 billion euros nationwide for the current year, the “Augsburger Allgemeine” newspaper reported. Clinics have suffered from massive increases in prices for energy, medical products, pharmaceuticals, EDP products as well as foodstuffs, CEO Gerald Gass said. Additionally, clinics lost revenue due to failed treatments in the waves of the pandemic. The hospital company also referred to the tense economic situation caused by inflation and the epidemic, which has also increased treatment costs, in a joint letter with the Verdi union and the Marburg Bond Medical Association to Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD). “The economic situation of hospitals is currently tragic and there is a risk of marked short-term limitations in patient care and additional burdens on staff,” the German editorial network quoted from the letter.

RKI records 2,388 new infections in Hamburg

According to the RKI, 2,388 new cases of coronavirus were recorded in Hamburg (prev.: 651). Thus, the seven-day incidence of new infections rises to 331.2 (previous day: 265.6). Experts have been hypothesizing for some time that there will be a large number of cases not recorded by the RKI – due to the stress of health authorities and because not all infected people have a PCR test. Deaths are not recorded.

Since the social authority in Hamburg stopped publishing Corona data on a daily basis at the beginning of May, the NDR now publishes the current figures from the RKI in the Corona Index every day. The Hanseatic City Health Authority only gives an update on the occurrence of seven days and hospital use once a week – on Tuesdays. These data and values ​​may differ from those of RKI.

The infection rate in Lower Saxony has risen to 454.3

Another 19 people died of the virus in their bodies.

When interpreting the current number of cases, it should be noted that there are fewer tests and reports due to the holidays.

Consequences of COVID-19: UNICEF fears more child labour

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) fears that internationally banned child labor will increase dramatically around the world. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said that, according to estimates, the economic consequences of the Corona epidemic may force another nine million girls and boys into child labor by the end of this year. According to the information, 160 million children around the world already work instead of going to school – the number increased by 8.4 million from 2016 to 2020. The increase is due, among other things, to the global economic disruption as a result of dealing with the pandemic, which also leads to lower wages.

The Federal Council votes on the tax assistance for corona and the care bonus

A week ago, the number of new infections recorded per 100,000 inhabitants was about 458 within seven days. According to the RKI, Schleswig-Holstein still has the highest rate among the federal states. 3,823 new cases of Schleswig-Holstein were registered within 24 hours.
