Innovative companies came through the crisis better

The earlier companies responded with innovations to the challenges posed by the economic consequences of the corona pandemic, the better they weathered the crisis. It hardly mattered whether they initiated business model, product, service or process innovations. This is the result of the latest study by the Institute for SME Research (IfM) in Bonn. However, there were also negative effects on the innovation process: Innovation projects that were already being implemented when the crisis hit were often delayed – and in some cases they were even canceled. In their study, the IfM scientists therefore advocate flexible handling of existing programs to promote innovation in times of crisis.

BGH clarifies: Are insurance companies responsible for lockdown closures?

The Federal Court of Justice (BGH) is today dealing with companies that had to close during the corona lockdown. For further cases, the court wants to clarify whether a so-called business closure insurance must at least partially pay for the damage incurred. In this specific case, it is about a hotel in Hamelin. Whether the insurance company has to pay depends on the agreed insurance conditions. There is already a BGH judgment from January 2022 on a variant that was used in many contracts. Here the diseases that can lead to an officially ordered closure were listed individually – and Covid-19 was not among them. Those affected therefore receive no money. In the variant that is at issue now, the insurance conditions only referred to the diseases mentioned in the Infection Protection Act. Covid-19 was recorded there on May 23, 2020. The Higher Regional Court of Celle had therefore decided that the hotel was not entitled to money from the insurance company for a closure from March 2020, but for a second closure from November 2020. The BGH now has the last word and may announce its verdict immediately after the hearing.

Health Minister Drese visits the Long Covid outpatient clinic

Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania’s Health Minister Stefanie Drese (SPD) visits the long-Covid outpatient clinic of the University Medicine Greifswald. The minister wants to find out more about the status of research and new treatment options there. Experts assume that at least four percent of people fall ill with post- or long Covid after a corona infection. In order to expand research and treatment methods in the state, the state parliament decided last November to fund the university medicine in Greifswald and Rostock in the amount of 2.5 million euros. “With this initiative, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is taking on a pioneering role nationwide on the subject of Long Covid,” emphasizes Drese.

The seven-day incidence of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in Schleswig-Holstein is currently 58.7, according to data from the state registration office on Tuesday evening (previous day: 70.5; previous week: 108.6). 291 new corona infections were recorded.

RKI: Nationwide seven-day incidence falls to 80.1

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) states the nationwide seven-day incidence this morning at 80.1. Last Wednesday, the number of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week was 122.8.

Note on the current numbers: The incidence values ​​do not provide a complete picture of the infection situation. Experts assume a high number of cases not recorded by the RKI – mainly because not all infected people have a PCR test done. However, only positive PCR tests are included in the official statistics. In addition, late registrations or transmission problems can lead to a distortion of individual daily values. In general, the number of new infections registered varies significantly from weekday to weekday, since many federal states do not transmit them to the RKI, especially at weekends, and report their cases later in the week.
