Germany in the Corona-crisis has been significant, Although infected more than 150,000 people with Sars-CoV-2, but the number of the Corona of the dead is something more than 5500 relatively small. Virologist Christian Drosten warns, however, against too great carelessness, and the further loosening of the lock downs and is now looking with concern to Germany.
In a television Interview with the ORF, a virologist Drosten of the Charité hospital in Berlin, emphasized that he was speaking in his assessments, always as a Bio-scientist and not as a citizen or politician. Further relaxations of the restrictions in the public life of the 48 warns-Year-old strongly. He also takes the citizen to the visor. The infection numbers would rise again slightly and this was “may be seen in connection with the Easter weekend”, “where perhaps in spite of contact block some people have taken it so strictly”. Take this for the next few weeks a lot of uncertainty, because the effects of relaxations after Easter not to pay even in the current Infection are priced.

The virologist warns therefore before the effects that were not intended by the policy. “Whether it will now pay a second wave, as I has been shortened, or an Increase of the Infection to a non-acceptable level is: We have to expect something like that now, unfortunately,” says Drosten. The virologist, stressed that he was well aware that it is very harmful for the economy, if one takes measures very hard. But he was speaking as a scientist.
Relaxation in the summer, but no immunity

To a vaccine virologist believes, but not in the next time – at the earliest in a year, Drosten expects. “The question is, how’s it going up there.” He also relies on the unknown effects of the still underdeveloped lung disease, a so-called background immunity, could have built people of previous cold corona viruses.
