German officials officially launched the nationwide “Vaccine Action Week” on the same day, striving to increase the vaccination rate as much as possible before the fall.
The German disease control agency Robert Koch Institute announced that the number of newly diagnosed new coronavirus infections and the number of new deaths were 5,511 and 12 respectively. As of that day, the total number of confirmed cases was 4,083,151 and the total number of deaths was 92,618.

The highest number of new coronary patients requiring intensive care treatment issued by the German Interdisciplinary Association for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine appeared in January this year, when it exceeded 5,700. This number has since fallen sharply, but has rebounded rapidly recently. As of August 29, the number of severely ill patients had once again exceeded 1,000 (1008), a record high since June of this year. It was only two weeks after the breakthrough of 1,000 to 1,500. Among the current 1501 critically ill patients, 788 require ventilator intubation therapy, accounting for 52%.
In order to increase the national vaccination rate as much as possible before the autumn and winter seasons, German officials officially launched a nationwide “Vaccine Action Week” from the 13th, involving about 700 activities, aiming to provide convenient vaccination for people everywhere. People can go directly to nearby vaccination sites to complete vaccination without having to make an appointment or pay in advance. These vaccination points are located in places such as libraries and shopping malls, and mobile vaccination buses have also been dispatched to provide services for people.
The German Federal Minister of Health, Spand, stated that the government is committed to achieving a vaccination rate of more than 90% for people over 60 and 75% for people aged 12-59. He said that to achieve this goal, about 5 million doses of vaccinations need to be completed.
