For the second day in a row, the total number of Covid 19 intensive care patients in Germany increased slightly.

Berlin – For the second day in a row, the total number of Covid 19 intensive care patients in Germany increased slightly. According to the daily report from the Divi intensive care register, 2,438 patients infected with the coronavirus were in intensive care treatment on Monday – 12 more than the day before. At the peak of the fourth wave in the first half of December 2021, around 5,000 corona patients were in intensive care. Then the number fell continuously for a long time. On Sunday she then grew again for the first time by 28.

“We are currently seeing a trend reversal in the normal wards, but not yet in the intensive care unit,” said the head of the Divi intensive care register, Christian Karagiannidis, on Monday when asked by the dpa. Traditionally, few patients would be moved away from the intensive care unit on Sundays. “I wouldn’t overrate this.” The week will show where the trend is going.

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the number of corona patients admitted to clinics nationwide per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days has already increased again in the past few days: on Monday it was 3.87, on Monday of the previous week it was 3 ,14. There are big regional differences. Since hospital admissions are often reported with a delay, the RKI also provides an estimate: This curve (so-called adjusted hospitalization incidence) has been rising more significantly since around mid-January, to values ​​over 7.

Experts had warned that there should again be more seriously ill people from Covid-19. Although the omicron variant, which is now dominant, leads to severe courses less often than its predecessor Delta, this advantage can fizzle out if the number of cases is very high. (dpa)
