Delta variant: is the fourth wave imminent?

The delta variant is spreading in Europe. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has now calculated the necessary vaccination rate that could protect the population.

The virus variant first appeared in India and is already causing renewed restrictions in many EU countries. In order to prevent a fourth wave in Germany in autumn, hygiene measures and distance rules should continue to be strictly observed in addition to the continuation of the vaccination campaign.

Vaccination against the Delta variant

This vaccination rate should be reached to stop the spread of the Delta variant and prevent another hard lockdown with restrictions:

  • Age group of 12 to 59 year olds:  85 percent
  • Seniors aged 60 and over:  90 percent

So far, 56.5 percent of the population in Germany have received their first vaccination. 38.9 percent are already fully vaccinated.
