The weekly incidence due to novel coronavirus` rate has now reached 584.4 new infections per 100,000 people over seven days, the RKI reported.


Health Minister Karl Lauterbach said that the variant would peak around the middle of February. Omicron infection has increased over 70% across Germany.

Germany has further tightened restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, limiting access to bars and restaurants to people who have booster vaccines, tested negative of COVId-19 and fully vaccinated or recovered.

Other European countries are also battling against rapid Omicron, including neighbouring countries, infections figures around three lakh daily cases.

The omicron variant was comparatively slow to start spreading in Germany by European standards. Still, in recent weeks, the country has experienced an increase in case numbers similar to those seen in several nearby countries such as France, the Netherlands and the UK.

Protestors are also demanding financial securities as they
face a lot of monetary crisis during the Covid tenure and seeking health and financial guarantees from the government.
