Recently, the number of new crown diagnoses in Taiwan has exceeded 10,000 in a single day. Although more than 99% of the cases are mild, it still arouses the fear of the public, and the rapid screening is in short supply. A representative of public opinion in Taiwan called for the import of "German saliva quick screening at NT$30" and said that Germans "quick screening almost every day before going out", but this seems to be a certain gap from the truth.
According to Germany's new anti-epidemic law that came into effect in April, masks are no longer required to go to most stores, and restaurants no longer require proof of vaccination and negative test results, officially entering the post-epidemic era.
(DW Chinese website) On Thursday (April 28), the number of local confirmed cases of the new crown in Taiwan reached 11,353 in a single day, breaking the 10,000 mark for the first time.
Judging from German experience, at the end of 2021 and early 2022, the number of infections in Germany caused by the Omicron variant virus soared, and the number of confirmed diagnoses in a single day in March 2022 once approached 300,000. Despite record high infection figures, Germany's Bundestag decided after intense discussions to lift most coronavirus restrictions at the end of March, including removing the need for masks in shops, restaurants and schools.
German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach said at the time that restrictions on the movement of people across the country could not continue because of a small group of unvaccinated people. Other arguments in favor of loosening restrictions include increased vaccine coverage, high infection rates but low rates of severe illness.
After the outbreak of the new crown virus, a research project named "Cosmo" at the University of Erfurt in Germany regularly surveys German people's risk perception, protective behavior and trust psychology of the new crown virus. The latest survey report shows that although the number of new crown infections has increased, and most people believe that the number of infections will rise further, and even expect that they may be infected, people's risk perception and fear of new crown pneumonia have decreased, and they have taken fewer protective measures.
The research report pointed out that German society is beginning to become more and more relaxed, and fewer and fewer people feel the threat of the new crown virus. In general, "Omicron causes mild symptoms" has become a common view.
Germany's epidemic prevention does not pursue "zeroing", and the main goal is to avoid the collapse of the medical system. Three weeks after the lifting of the new crown epidemic prevention restrictions, experts assessed that the number of intensive care units and hospitalization rates in each federal state has decreased. "I think this is a sustainable effect," Helmut Küchenhoff, a professor of statistics at the University of Munich, was quoted by the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation (BR).
Still, the outbreak in Germany is still developing, and it is difficult for experts to make long-term forecasts for autumn and winter conditions. According to Robert. According to statistics from the Koch Institute (RKI), the number of infected people in Germany in 24 hours on April 28 was 130,104, with 246 deaths and a 7-day infection rate of 826 per 100,000 people. The policies of each federal government are different, and the epidemic prevention regulations and testing patterns are constantly changing with the ups and downs of the epidemic.

Germans go out and screen quickly every day?
According to DW reporters on the spot to understand the local situation, the Germans did not go out almost every day. At present, Germany usually has symptoms to "quickly screen at home"; before the relaxation of the epidemic prevention policy in April, people who go to restaurants other than supermarkets, eat in restaurants, take public transportation or participate in certain activities must obtain a "rapid antigen test certificate" at the rapid screening station. , especially those who have not been vaccinated or who have not received booster shots. Those who are more cautious will also be tested at home or at a rapid screening station before private gatherings.
Last year, Germany successively introduced 3G, 2G and 2G+ regulations to regulate the conditions people need to meet when entering public places, shops, restaurants, and taking public transportation. 3G stands for "vaccinated, cured or tested" certificate, 2G stands for "vaccinated, cured", and 2G+ requires booster shots or quick screening on the premise of 2G. Since April, the federal states have gradually loosened their regulations, and many places no longer require the production of 2G or 3G certificates.
