The Greens health expert Janosch Dahmen has called for a more precise collection of corona data. Criticism of the federal government that not enough has been done so far is justified, said the member of the Bundestag on Monday in the RTL / ntv program “Frühstart”. “We can’t duck that, we have to face this criticism.”

You have to know how heavy the burden in the healthcare system is and how many beds are available in the hospitals in intensive care and normal wards.

In this context, Dahmen pointed to the high burden on employees in the health authorities after more than two years of the pandemic. With a view to the upcoming autumn, the Green politician expressed “very worried”. One must expect that influenza viruses will spread parallel to new coronavirus strains.
