The chairman of the World Medical Association (Weltärztebund), Frank Ulrich Montgomery, believes that tough restrictive measures to combat coronavirus will last until the spring of the coming year. Despite the fact that the start of vaccination is expected earlier than planned, in the coming months this will not change the epidemiological situation in the country dramatically.
“Even if vaccinations in Europe and Germany start earlier than expected, the effect will only help improve the situation over time. We will have to live with different quarantine rules, at least until Easter, ”Montgomery told the Funke Mediengruppe.
Scientists modeled the situation and calculated that strict quarantine would help reduce the number of new infections across the country to less than 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days no earlier than by the end of January. Thus, the residents of the country are likely to face the extension of the strict quarantine after its planned end. “After January 10, isolation will be extended,” experts say.
