Practice phones run hot - doctors: please don't argue

Who these days has a Family doctor wants to speak, must be persistent and exercise patience. The author of this article is no different Vaccination or acutely ill patient. Whoever calls the practices gets to hear the busy signal again and again. No passage. In case of illness this is a real problem. And there is no easy solution in sight.

Doctors' nerves are also on edge. "The situation is dramatic," says Carsten Gieseking, chairman of the Braunschweig GP association. One reason for the rush is the autumn-typical accumulation of infections. Add to that the large number of people who Corona vaccination dates want to agree. In Gieseking's view, the fact that so many are coming to practices at once is a "politically homemade" problem: The call from Health Minister Jens Spahn to all vaccinated persons, whose vaccination was six months ago, to get "boostered" had triggered the rush.

But now it turns out that not enough vaccine is available: "An absolute catastrophe," summarizes Gieseking. Thorsten Kleinschmidt, district chairman of the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, also uses drastic words: "Spahn screwed up." He asks those willing to vaccinate for patience and forbearance: "All everything immediately – this can not work."

Vaccine commissioner: this is how he wants to overcome the shortages

His appointment was meant to be a signal: The Federal government wants to get a grip on the bottlenecks in the supply of vaccines. In an interview, the vaccine commissioner Christoph Krupp However, it is clear that he is aiming more for long-term successes.

The federal government has appointed you – a climate scientist with a doctorate – as vaccine commissioner. How did it come to this?

Christoph Krupp I spent seven years in Hamburg running the Senate Chancellery for First Mayor Olaf Scholz. In this position, I have dealt with everything that is at hand. I guess that's why they came up with the idea for me to do it now.

Sick trump puts others at risk in bizarre appearance

Anyone who had a glimmer of hope that Coronavirus, experienced firsthand, would Donald Trump teach a little humility and, after eight months of chaos management, set America on a more innocuous course in dealing with the pandemic, has been bitterly mistaken.

What the White House has been releasing to the public since the president was hurriedly transported to a military hospital near Washington on Friday night is inadequately described by confusion and deliberate misdirection.

From the timing of the diagnosed infection to the actual severity of the disease symptoms to the prospect of recovery, America knows nothing from official sources that it can rely on one hundred percent a month before the presidential election. It will be hourly lied and Concealed.

Bvb pro mats hummels leaves dfb future open

Bvb pro mats hummels leaves dfb future open

Defense routinier Mats Hummels Has not clearly commented on his DFB future after the European Championship exit of the national soccer team. "I'll do that sometime in a few weeks," said the 31-year-old Borussia Dortmund professional on Tuesday night in London after the 0:2 against England. He wants to sort out his thoughts first, after he had not dealt with the topic during the EM. "All in all, I must now unfortunately tick off the tournament as a disappointment," returnee Hummels said.

The central defender had been brought back to the national team for the European Championship by national coach Joachim Low, just like attacker Thomas Muller (31) from FC Bayern Munich – not too late for the Dortmund head of defense, who had been out of action in 2018: "We had a super spirit and a super team feeling. It was much better than it has been written for days and weeks," said Hummels.

Official final results: now it comes down to absentee voters

That on election night no quick final result would give, was clear. There has never been. What TV viewers, Internet users and newspaper readers are being served at an early hour in Europe is based on projections and projections of the major TV stations, which are supplied by two different opinion research institutes.

In the past, too, it sometimes took weeks from state to state in America until the official results were available in a legally binding form. Everything normal. And legal. If Donald Trump says – "I think it's terrible that we can't know the results of an election on the night of the election" – the president deliberately distorts reality.

US election: Trump deliberately discredits high number of absentee voters

Trump's aim is to reduce the extremely high number of Corona-related Absentee voters to discredit. Trump has been using the tried-and-true method, which nearly all states use, under suspicion of fraud for weeks – without solid evidence.

Staffed into six-point game

Staffed into six-point game

Valerien Ismael had to read from a piece of paper on the podium at the press conference who will be absent for today's match against Bayer Leverkusen. In addition to Jannes Horn, Christian Trasch, Vieirinha, Bruno Henrique, Jeffrey Bruma and Carlos Ascues, the VfL coach will also have to do without Daniel Didavi. At the same time, they had placed a lot of hope in the creative left-footer at the Bundesliga soccer club. But: "It's getting too tight," says Ismael. "Daniel is expected to train with the team in the next week." Didavi's goal is the game in Freiburg. At least Julian Draxler is fit now. The world champion had to take a break recently due to slight problems in his ankle, but gave the green light.

Before the six-point game plague the Wolfsburg poor personnel problems. Especially in the defensive chain it's getting thin. But no one at VfL wants to complain about it, as became clear yesterday. Ismael: "There are two ways to deal with our situation. First, you start to cry. Or two: I tell my players who are fit that they are the most important. And that we want to defend against what happens. Full of verve, full of energy and full of conviction."

Ismael's pithy words are getting through. Maximilian Arnold, Yannick Gerhardt and Mario Gomez from the team recently expressed their praise for the former top defender's gripping manner. And also with the superiors it is positively received. Klaus Allofs says: "What the players have said and how I experience them in training and in the games indicates that good work is being done here."
