German Of The Day: Ungewöhnlich, Aber Mild

That means “unusual, but mild.” You know, like the symptoms of those infected with the latest Covid Omicron variant?

How did the Media Brain Police let this one slip through? Where’s the hysterical spin?

Omicron patients in South Africa are not in mortal danger so far – Body aches, extreme fatigue: these are the mild symptoms – so far known – of South African Omikron infected patients. Cases of the new virus mutant are also increasing in Europe.

And you call yourselves serious news people over there at Der Spiegel? That’s just not enough. Where’s the beef? How are you going to get your customers to panic with that?

Infectious Number Variants Increasing Numbers More Infectiously

COVID numbers in Germany seem to have mutated and are now on the rise again. Thank goodness. They had been dropping for weeks.

School

Germany’s COVID infections rise again – The increase comes just as schools are scheduled to reopen. The rise has been driven by new, more-infectious variants of the coronavirus.

The Robert Koch Institute for infectious diseases reported 7,676 new cases on Sunday, up 1,562 from one week ago. The key seven-day incidence rate increased to 60.2 across the country, up from 57.7 a day earlier.
