It is therefore taken for granted that Omikron will replace Delta as the dominant variant. The only discussion is whether this will be the case before Christmas or not until January. By then at the latest, all those who have to make political decisions will be confronted with a completely new dynamic. If you then want to deal with questions in rounds that come together 14 days later, you have to expect a 32-fold increase in the number of infections during this time. The federal government’s Corona crisis team headed by General Carsten Breuer is facing an unexpected challenge. The rate of spread is one thing. The crucial question, however, remains how sick Omikron makes. After such a short time, there is little that can be said about it.
