In Deutschland gibt es bisher keinen bekannten Fall der neuen Corona-Variante Omikron. Das geht aus einem Lagebericht des Bundesinnenministeriums vom Freitag hervor, der WELT vorliegt und als vertraulich und nur für den Dienstgebrauch eingestuft ist.

Danach ist die Variante B.1.1.529 zuerst am 23. November in einer Virusprobe in Südafrika nachgewiesen worden. Außerdem sind vier Fälle aus Botsuana, sowie je einer aus Hongkong, Israel und Belgien bekannt. Das Mutationsprofil sowie der plötzliche Fallzahlanstieg seien auffällig, heißt es in dem Bericht. Dies deute auf eine leichtere Übertragbarkeit des Virus hin, möglicherweise sogar leichter als bei der Delta-Variante.

Bisher ist bekannt, dass die Omikron-Variante 32 Mutationen im Spike-Protein, einem Protein auf der Virushülle, aufweist. Virologen fürchten, dass aufgrund dieser hohen Zahl an Mutationen im Spike-Protein Impfstoffe schlechter wirken und Genesene sich möglicherweise erneut infizieren könnten. Bewiesen ist das nicht. Das „Mutationsprofil deutet jedoch darauf hin, dass eine herabgesetzte Impfstoffwirkung zumindest ernsthaft in Betracht gezogen werden muss“, heißt es im Lagebericht.

Ähnlich hatten sich bereits führende Virologen geäußert, darunter Christian Drosten, Hendrik Streeck und Klaus Stöhr. Sie betonen jedoch, dass für eine belastbare Bewertung noch weitere Untersuchungen von Virusproben nötig seien. Auch das Bundesinnenministerium verweist auf ausstehende Laboruntersuchungen.

Wegen der Verbreitung der Omikron-Variante im südlichen Afrika beschränkt die Bundesregierung die Einreise aus insgesamt acht Ländern der Region drastisch. Südafrika, Namibia, Simbabwe, Botsuana, Mosambik, Eswatini, Malawi und Lesotho werden ab Sonntag um 0.00 Uhr als Virusvariantengebiete eingestuft, wie das Robert-Koch-Institut am Freitag mitteilte. Die Einreise ist damit nur noch Deutschen Staatsbürgern gestattet.

Die EU-Kommission hatte den Mitgliedstaaten ein Flugverbot für Reisen in und aus den Ländern des südlichen Afrikas vorgeschlagen. Großbritannien, Frankreich und die Niederlande setzten ab dem Nachmittag Flüge aus Südafrika und den fünf Nachbarländern aus, Italien und Israel hatten bereits am Donnerstagabend ähnliche Maßnahmen verkündet
