India has more than 5 million corona trap

India is the second country after the USA to have recorded more than five million known corona infections. In absolute terms, the number of known new infections in the sudasian nation has been rising faster than in any other country for weeks now.

In the past 24 hours, more than 90.000 new cases, around 600 in the past week.000, as official figures show. Also, unlike the U.S., which has the most known cases at 6.6 million, there is no evidence of a flattening of the curve.

Given the rapid spread of corona in india, local media in several regions had reported a shortage of medical oxygen for patients.

Flu doesn’t give corona pause

flu doesn't give corona pause

A raging fever, dry cough and severe headache – too severe for a normal cold. Up to now, with such symptoms, especially in the cold season, it was obvious that influenza, i.E. The real flu, was the culprit. In 2020, however, the coronavirus is still going around, which can manifest itself with very similar symptoms.

"It is not always possible, even for an expert, to distinguish between the two on the basis of the symptoms alone, says dr. Ullrich zuber, chairman of the coburg family doctors’ association with a practice in kaltenbrunn. "There are indeed these symptoms, which are already known through the media and can lead a layman to suspect covid-19. But the most sensible way is to have a consultation with the family doctor and to discuss the further procedure." Only a test swab can ultimately provide certainty.

Longer waiting times possible

In any case, at the moment it is imperative that you call the practice to make an appointment. Special infection consultations for people with symptoms minimize the risk for other patients. "These protective measures make a practice a safe place to be. No one has to be afraid of getting infected there." The time of full waiting rooms is over. "In the past, you sometimes went to the doctor and then went home cold again. That won’t be the case anymore."

A future for bischofsheim’s temple of engagement

A future for bischofsheim's temple of engagement

The fact that bischofsheim once had an engagement or love temple is hardly known to the younger generation. The building stood until about the beginning of the 1970s. Now the temple of love is being rebuilt on the old site. In the rhonstrabe on the outskirts of bischofsheim, many hard-working helpers are currently at work to revive this romantic gem.

The suggestion to rebuild the temple of betrothal was brought to mayor georg seiffert by a number of citizens, independently of each other, some time ago. Irene raimann was one of the first to campaign for the reconstruction of the building. But also fritz voll, manfred markert, matthias huttner and edgar korb, klaus kirchner and klaus richter made representations. The mayor invited to an information meeting, but the first attempt was not very encouraging – or the date was not chosen well.

Rough interest

But the subject was not forgotten. Steffi schoppner founded a whatsapp group. The interest group was formed and the mayor assured his full support. "It is advantageous that some are masons, carpenters and roofers. For them it is a matter of course that they themselves "hand, hammer and say" concerned", emphasized seiffert. "At the meetings, however, some people also reminisced about their own memories of the temple of love in intimate togetherness on balmy summer nights."

The viruses come back

The viruses come back

Kitzingen county the waiting rooms in family doctors’ offices are full, the wave of colds is rolling over germany. The robert koch institute reports a particularly high rate of respiratory illnesses for this time of year. The "real flu" (influneza) is also expected to rise compared to the previous year. What this development has to do with corona and who should think about a flu vaccination now, explains senior physician dr. Stefanie held from the kitzinger land clinic.

Question: distance rules and mandatory masks: have these corona decreases weakened our immune system??

Stefanie held: weakened is the wrong word, but in fact we are currently observing a kind of catch-up effect. After a year and a half without any significant infections, the viruses are now coming through again. This can be seen, for example, in the significantly higher number of seasonal sickness reports than in the previous year.
