Germany tops 100,000 daily infections +++ Hong Kong culls hamsters | COVID latest ctm magazine

As the omicron variant spreads, the number of COVID-19 cases has also surged rapidly in Turkey. The country’s health ministry reported nearly 70,000 new cases on Tuesday – one of the highest daily figures since the pandemic began. The government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan now hopes its locally made “Turkovac” jab will convince vaccine-hesitant Turks to roll up their sleeves. “Turkovac” received emergency use approval from Turkish authorities in December and is now being administered to the public. But experts have serious doubts about the vaccine’s effectiveness.

Germany reported 112,323 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, the latest new 24-hour record and the first daily tally north of 100,000. The national disease control body, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), published the figures early in the morning. The country’s weekly incidence rate has now reached 584.4 new infections per 100,000 people over a seven-day period, the RKI reported. The institute registered 239 deaths connected to COVID, a reduction from the 384 reported on the previous Wednesday. The hospitalization rate rose, but only slightly, to 3.17 people per 100,000 per week, versus 3.13 one week ago.

Hong Kong health authorities on Tuesday said about 2,000 hamsters and chinchillas needed to be put down after COVID-19 infections were traced back to a pet store. At least 11 hamsters tested positive for the COVID-19, and a store employee was also infected with the delta variant, according to officials. People who purchased hamsters from the store after December 22 have been instructed to hand over the animals to be destroyed, and not to set them free on the streets. Those who had been in contact with the animals would also have to quarantine.

    Good job turkey

  • Zoran Davidović on January 19, 2022

    Justice for hamsters!

  • Dustie on January 19, 2022

    Maybe just cull all living creatures because they can all carry various diseases… problem solved !

  • Nelson Bartsch on January 19, 2022

    I got wodkavac sometimes but after too many boosters can be also dangerous…

  • lob lowry on January 19, 2022

    they should vax those hamsters first.

  • Thomas Jeremy Visser on January 19, 2022

    I wasn't sure if they were interviewing Turks or North Koreans. Nationalism is very dangerous. Pity they are so brainwashed.

    For the life of me, I can't understand why Germany's PCR capacity is so low. The commentator in this video says that the (PCR) testing capacity of Germany is 1.5 million per week, which means ~2.6 tests per day per 1,000 people. When the UK was in the same situation (a few weeks ago) they did ~9 PCR tests per day per 1,000 people, i.e. ~3.5-times more than Germany. Israel has been doing recently ~21.7 PCR tests per day per 1,000 people, meaning ~8.3-times more than Germany. Why is Germany being so inefficient/incapable when it comes to coronavirus PCRs?

    Hmmmmmm somethi

  • Life Is Good on January 19, 2022

    No vaccine mandates for Europe! Especially, for Deutschland! 🇩🇪

  • 3nien on January 19, 2022

    Nobody trusts the Americans anymore. India is starting it’s own vaccine despite AstraZeneca gave India the formula to produce. But India doesn’t trust AstraZeneca so it’s making its own.

  • fer na on January 19, 2022

    I believe China over the West. 😅 You ppl love to blame others.

  • Phenita Gomes on January 19, 2022

    All of a sudden theres a bunch of infections. Like we were living without all the worry now it's the focus of the decade. Smfh. What is really happening to the world that they don't want us to know

  • bob .fagg-bois on January 19, 2022

    Why won`t they just admit, it can never be stopped?

  • Sergei Anissimov-Pihl on January 19, 2022

    what an Utter Racist GARBAGE! not a news. DW is turning it into total cesspool!
    Had you brodcasted news about all the faked data in BioNTech Pfizer vaccine?

  • B C on January 19, 2022

    Let be honest, hamster is not an animal that go outdoor much. It's more likely the COVID spread from human to hamster.

  • KoSeKu on January 19, 2022

    Turkiye* not "Turkey" anymore

  • Prayukth K V on January 19, 2022

    People are being barred from bars…

    Here in the states it is probably over a million since Florida and other states just don't care any more.

  • TobotronPrime on January 19, 2022

    The reason Germany has 'lower cases' is that they perform around 200k tests a day and countries like the UK perform 1-1.5 MILLION tests a day! France also went from 300k tests a day in November to 1.6 million during December and January. Is it any wonder that their daily case numbers accelerated in line with this vast expansion in tests performed.

    You cannot compare country to country when there is this level of disparity between daily tests taken.

    It's not complicated, but of course DW and pretty much every news outlet ignores these simple facts.

  • Jake G on January 19, 2022

    Why don’t you report this with a semi-positive spin. Add that it’s the equivalent of that many fully vaccinated people. In 1 day

  • Centri Fuga on January 19, 2022

    Funny, in the beginning bat from Chaina spread the virus all over the world, and now humsters returns the virus again in Chaina, and it's low chance that animals can spread a virus 🤣 so how it is realy?

  • hadin apokalix on January 19, 2022

    why aren't the vaccines working?

  • Drake on January 19, 2022

    Be careful China! Covid is in the mail!! ✉
    From Canada with love ! 💖💋

  • Frank Artanis on January 19, 2022

    "Record infections in Germany that sound frightening. But is it?"
    Yes. Yes, it is.

  • Halfdan Ingolfsson on January 19, 2022

    Ironic – "Turkovac" is the SECOND Covid vaccine invented by Turks! The so-called "Pfizer" vaccine was developed by Turkish emigrants to Germany, only to be taken over my 'Murican Big Pharma. Let's hope Turkey's own personal leaders (Gollum's) judgement regarding virological issues is not as hopeless as his economic judgement.

    The more controlled and shutdown places and vxed..the more get sick. Free and happy people are healthier.

  • Kay Oss on January 19, 2022

    Yeah, okay.
    Turkovac, ha! You first!

  • Caren Ogalo on January 19, 2022

    Until China and her counterparts are held to account for deliberately manufacturing the virus in laboratories, this variants will keep reoccurring. This is crime against humanity period. If China has nothing to hide about the origin of Wuhan variants, then why can't they allow the investigation to go ahead?. Are they trying to get ride of evidence because they knew what they were doing was wrong but thought they might get away with it.

  • A K on January 19, 2022

    Funny how they're skeptical about Turkovac and not Pfizer who broken numerous policies with their trails and the efficacy is low because vaxxed people are catching COVID at higher rates than unvaxxed and whatever imagined protection it does offer only lasts a few months lol. Can't mess up at worse than Pfizer ,J&J and Moderna.

    To make money from vaccine by covid-19 is a disaster.

  • Stephen A on January 19, 2022

    I am sure the pfizer doctors union is objecting to a Turkish vaccine!!!

    Germany and Turkey , tied together . Maybe I cut that chain , and throw Turkey into the abyss.

  • pinit paibun on January 19, 2022
