The initially controversial Corona warning app has now established itself and has many functionalities that make it a practical pandemic mountain guide. The developers continue to give the application new features, currently as of version 2.13.
These days, users of the Corona Warning app will receive version 2.13, which primarily includes a recycle bin function for certificates. As the Robert Koch Institute explains, vaccination, recovery, or test certificates that have been accidentally deleted, for example, are first moved to the trash. There they can be restored, the trash can only be completely emptied after 30 days.
In addition, users can now see the 7-day incidence of hospitalization at the local level, here the Corona-Warn-App automatically records the hospitalization of the respective federal state, if a city or a district has been selected.

Finally, the RKI writes that from version 2.13 there is a combined tile for the 7-day incidence values: “Both at local and federal level, the new infections and hospitalizations per 100,000 inhabitants are now displayed on one tile.”
Push with booster recommendations
Apart from that, the Corona-Warn-App has a function with which authorized persons are informed via push notification when a booster vaccination is recommended. As Caschy’s blog writes, this only applies to those who have been recommended by the Standing Vaccination Commission (STIKO).
On the one hand, these are people over the age of 70, in whom no Covid 19 infection has been detected and whose basic immunization was six months ago. The second eligible group is recipients of a Johnson & Johnson vaccination who were given more than four weeks ago. The basis for the detection is a comparison with the stored vaccination certificate.
