DW, 13 Jan 2022

New daily cases have surged to almost 250,000 - the highest number of infections since late May. This despite nearly 70 percent of all adults having received at least one dose of a vaccine. Even though fewer patients with Omicron infections are being hospitalized, this new wave has hit hospital staff hard, with hundreds of hospital and other front-line workers falling ill.
