The incidence in vaccinated is 70, in unvaccinated 1,100? According to one report, this difference in new infections may not have been that drastic after all.
According to a report, in addition to Bavaria and Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has also reported inaccurate corona incidences of unvaccinated people. On December 3, the state government announced in a press release that the corona incidence in the state was 70 among vaccinated people and over 1,100 among unvaccinated people. As the “Welt” now reports, newly infected people with unknown vaccination status were generally counted among the unvaccinated. The Mecklenburg-Western Pomeranian Ministry of Health confirmed this to the newspaper.
On December 3, there were 691 cases in which the vaccination status was unknown – more than half of all new infections. The ministry has now announced that at least 117 of the 691 cases occurred in vaccinated people and at least 403 in unvaccinated people. The status of the remaining infected is still unclear.
From December 9th, the State Office for Health and Social Affairs refrained from reporting the incidences separately for the vaccinated and unvaccinated. Due to the allocation made by Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the difference between the incidences was possibly higher than it actually was. Schwesig, like the Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder, had justified strict restrictions for the unvaccinated with these numbers.
FDP Vice Wolfgang Kubicki last week called for the resignation of Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder. “Either Markus Söder wanted to paint a crooked picture of the risk of infection posed by unvaccinated people and officially stigmatize a group of people – or he doesn’t have his shop under control,” said Kubicki of “Welt”. Both are reason enough to resign.
