A new multilingual flyer on the topic "10 questions to ask yourself when considering vaccination: Vaccination works – why I should get vaccinated against COVID-19 now" is available for download from the DGUV publication database, emphasizing the importance of vaccination against the coronavirus.
This new booklet contains an overview of extent and current development of key figures. It includes among other things information on the number of member companies, hours worked and persons insured. There is also data on reportable and fatal accidents at work and on the way to and from work given as well as new accident pensions. A list of all occupational diseases (OD) with current figures is included as well.
In 2020 and 2021, a total of 120,398 COVID-19 illnesses were recognised as occupational diseases in Germany. In just under 3 per cent of the recognised cases, the diagnosis of long or post-COVID was documented. The DGUV offers support for those affected to cope with the long-term consequences of COVID-19.
