The political magazine “On the matter of Rhineland-Palatinate!” reports on the increasing corona numbers and their possible consequences on Thursday, January 20, 2022, from 8:15 p.m. on SWR television and then in the ARD media library / Moderation: Britta Krane

Every day more people are infected with the corona virus. For the first time, the number of newly infected people was more than 100,000 in one day. The incidences are going through the roof in the cities, such as in Bad Kreuznach and Kaiserslautern. But could that also indicate an end to the pandemic?

Will the clinics deal with it and what about Long-Covid, i.e. possible corona complications? The “Zur Sache Rheinland-Pfalz” reporters Luisa Szabo and Jörg Armbrüster looking for answers.
