The head of the Association of Intensive Care Physicians in Germany, Christian Karajianidis, called for a strict two-week lockdown, and for an immediate stop to all scheduled reopening steps, in light of the sharp increase in the number of coronavirus infections.
“The decisions of the model projects for the post-Easter period are totally inappropriate, and the federal government and state governments must immediately withdraw from them,” Karagiannides said in statements to the German newspaper “Reinishe Post”.
“It takes a combination of strict lockdowns, a lot of vaccinations and tests,” he added. This is the only way to prevent the expansion of the capacity of the intensive care units », explaining that such a closure must be applied at the level of Germany for a period of two weeks.
“I ask the politicians not to fail the hospital staff,” warned Karagianidis, who is also the scientific director of the “Divi” registry of intensive care beds in Germany.
At the beginning of the week, the federal and state governments decided that individual areas of public life could be opened on a pilot basis in selected regions and “temporary pilot projects.” And some states announced that they would open several model areas at the same time.
