Minister of Education Anja Karliczek (CDU) has spoken out in favor of a mask requirement in school buildings. It is understandable “if countries want to forego distance rules in schools, because the spatial conditions would otherwise only allow classroom instruction to a limited extent,” she said Welt am Sonntag. “Nevertheless, face-to-face classes will only work if further regulations on hygiene, wearing protective masks and keeping clear in the schoolyard and in the hallways are strictly observed.”

Berlin, Bavaria and Baden-Wuerttemberg have already announced a mask requirement in school buildings. This should apply to hallways and the school playground, but not in class. North Rhine-Westphalia relies on voluntary mask bids. Hesse and Saxony want to leave it up to the schools to decide whether or not to introduce a mask requirement.

Karliczek’s demand comes before Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is the first federal state to start the new school year on Monday. Hamburg follows on Thursday. The following week it starts in Berlin, Brandenburg, North Rhine-Westphalia and Schleswig-Holstein. Despite the corona pandemic, schools are expected to return to normal operations after the holidays.

Altmaier calls for tougher action in the event of corona violations

Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier advocates harsher penalties for violations of the corona rules. “Anyone who deliberately endangers others must expect that this will have serious consequences for them,” said the CDU politician at the German Press Agency in Berlin. “We must not jeopardize the recovery that is just beginning by accepting a further increase in infections.”

Despite rising numbers of infections, thousands demonstrated in Berlin on Saturday for an end to all corona requirements in Germany. According to the police, up to 17,000 people marched through the city on a demonstration, followed by a rally of 20,000 people. The hygiene rules were not observed during the demonstration. The police filed criminal charges against the head of the gathering and documented violations among participants for possible later persecution. The subsequent rally ended the police because most of the participants ignored the distance rules and did not wear masks. Several representatives of the organizers were brought off the stage under protests from rally participants. When one person resisted, the officers used their bodies.

Health Minister Jens Spahn criticized the protest march in Berlin. “Yes, demonstrations must also be possible in Corona times. But not so,” wrote the CDU politician on Twitter. Distance, hygiene rules and everyday masks served to protect everyone. The pandemic can only be mastered “with reason, perseverance and team spirit”.

Since mid-July, the number of coronavirus cases in Germany has been rising again. As the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) announced on Saturday morning on the Internet, the health authorities reported 955 new corona infections within one day (data status as of August 1st, midnight). This is the highest reported daily number of cases since the beginning of May – apart from the local corona outbreak at the meat manufacturer Tönnies in mid-June.

“A further exacerbation of the situation must be avoided,” wrote the RKI in its current management report. “This will only succeed if the entire population remains committed, e.g. by consistently complying with distance and hygiene rules – even outdoors -, ventilating interiors and, where appropriate, wearing a mouth and nose cover correctly.”

The vast majority of the population is still extremely responsible, Altmaier praised. “What we are currently experiencing in terms of risk increases is largely due to the careless and sometimes irresponsible misconduct of a very small number of people,” said the minister. “We have to prevent this more effectively than before and act effectively in cases where there are infections and outbreaks: This includes fines and penalties if it is a matter of intent or gross negligence.”

There are different catalogs of fines for violations of corona rules in the federal states, for example if the minimum distance is not observed, no mouth-to-nose protection is worn in public transport or “corona parties” are celebrated.

“I strongly advocate that you can only get on buses and trains if you can show a protective mask, or acquire one when you get in, provided you have forgotten your own,” said Altmaier. “If you drive a bus or train without a mask, you are not endangering yourself, but others. If a party in a narrow cellar pub becomes a super-spreading event in violation of all spacing and hygiene regulations, this is not trivial and must also be punished if necessary . ” A super-spreading event is an event in which a particularly large number of people become infected.

The board of the German Foundation for Patient Protection, Eugen Brysch, initially called for the consistent implementation of existing rules. Local authorities, state and federal police looked away so that the situation did not escalate. “This creates legal-free spaces and the spread of the virus is picking up speed. This is extremely dangerous for the high-risk group,” warned Brysch.

Corona demonstrations: How rights use the corona crisis

Economists warn of the consequences of a second wave

Leading economists are warning of the economic impact of rising corona infections. “A second wave could be economically more damaging than the first wave. Because many companies are hit, have high debts and hardly any reserves,” said Marcel Fratzscher, President of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) Rheinische Post. The director of the Institute of German Economics (IW), Michael Hüther, warns the federal government against hastily imposing a second nationwide lockdown. This is currently not the responsibility of the social and economic collateral effects.

According to current figures from the Robert Koch Institute, the number of people infected last increased by 955 in one day, the number of deaths increased by seven and is now 9148 in Germany.

Seehofer: “Large majority behaves absolutely correctly”

Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer (CSU) is convinced that the vast majority of citizens in Germany are still behind the rules for containing the corona pandemic. “The vast majority are absolutely correct and disciplined,” said Seehofer the Passauer Neue Press. “Of course, there are always other opinions when it comes to interfering with fundamental rights and restrictions on freedom. First, however, this is normal and second, I don’t think the majority.” In protest against the restrictions in the Corona crisis, thousands of people want to take to the streets in Berlin this Saturday. Despite increasing numbers of infections, they want to end all conditions.

Seehofer drew a positive conclusion from the previous corona policy. “It is fair to say that Germany managed the Corona pandemic very well this six months,” he said. The number of new infections and deaths is far lower than in many other countries. The discipline of the people, the protective measures of the federal and state governments, but also the quality of the health system would have helped to successfully contain the pandemic. Seehofer did not want to comment on a possible second wave. “I will not take part in all the daily predictions about a possible second wave. Forecasts are and will remain difficult,” said the minister. He appealed to the population to continue to follow the Corona rules.

Economics Minister Peter Altmaier (CDU) made a similar statement. He also pronounced them for harsher penalties for violating corona rules. “Anyone who deliberately endangers others must expect that this will have serious consequences for them,” said Altmaier. “We must not jeopardize the recovery that is just beginning by accepting a further increase in infections.” And: “What we are currently experiencing in terms of risk increases is largely due to the careless and sometimes irresponsible misconduct of a very small number of people.”

Esken calls for corona tests to be expanded

SPD leader Saskia Esken calls for a significant expansion of the corona tests in Germany in view of increasing numbers of infections. A strategy is needed that allows early detection of infections through comprehensive and targeted tests, thereby reducing further infection risks, said Esken der Rheinische Post . “There is now a need for responsibility in the federal, state and local authorities.” Especially those who have pushed ahead with the question of easing should now take all necessary precautions to prevent a second wave. “The undisputed need for a Europe-wide strategy must not prevent anyone from taking responsibility here and now.”

Federal Foreign Office warns of trips to three Spanish regions

The Federal Foreign Office has issued a travel warning for tourist trips in three regions due to the rapidly increasing number of corona infections in Spain. According to a statement by the Federal Foreign Office on Friday, Catalonia, with the tourist metropolis Barcelona and the beaches of the Costa Brava, as well as the Aragon and Navarra regions to the west of it, are affected by the formal travel warning, but not Mallorca and not the Canary Islands either.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) had previously opened the Spanish regions the list of corona risk areas added. According to the Federal Ministry of Health, the threshold of more than 50 newly infected people per 100,000 inhabitants has been exceeded in the three areas in Spain in the past seven days.

Corona testing will be mandatory for returning travelers from regions officially classified as risk areas from next week. Already applies: If you come back to Germany from a risk area, you have to be in quarantine for 14 days, unless there is a negative test result. From next week onwards, all immigrants from abroad should be able to have them voluntarily tested for free.

Around 50 guests tested positive for Corona after a party in the district of Kleve

After a private party, another outbreak of coronavirus has occurred in the district of Kleve. More than 50 guests tested positive for the corona virus after the celebration. The district administration announced on Friday.

The event was a celebration in the neighboring district of Wesel, said a spokeswoman. The guests came from Geldern in the district of Kleve with a few exceptions. A guest was infected with the corona virus. After he reported to the local authorities, 111 people were immediately tested and quarantined. By Friday morning, 98 laboratory results were available. Accordingly, 54 people were tested positive and 44 negative for the corona virus. “The health department contacts the people who tested positive for more information,” said District Administrator Wolfgang Spreen. The contact person determination is ongoing.
