After the corona outbreak at the meat processor Tönnies, the authorities also imposed a lockdown on the neighboring district of Warendorf. Just like in the district of Gütersloh, there are contact restrictions, sports in closed rooms and numerous cultural events are prohibited, said NRW Health Minister Karl-Josef Laumann (CDU) on Tuesday. Schools and daycare centers in the district would also be closed from Thursday.

“You can’t make it sharp in the village. Social life is not based on village borders,” said Laumann. In addition, the 7-day incidence exceeded 50. “Germany also looks at this. Foreign countries also look at it. And I think if you have agreed to that, you have to stick to it,” says Laumann.

Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) had said at a press conference on Tuesday morning that the planned measures in the Warendorf district should not be “nationwide”, but should apply to places that border the Gütersloh district.

In the Gütersloh and Warendorf districts, the corona tests are also being significantly expanded. As Laumann further announced, residents and employees in the care facilities will be tested in the coming days. The same applies to employees of hospitals, employees in the food retail trade and kiosk staff.

The employees of companies and subcontractors who operate central shared accommodation or employ contract workers to a significant extent should also be tested. All citizens of the two districts should also be given the opportunity to have a test carried out free of charge.

Next Corona cases at a slaughterhouse in Lower Saxony

Several employees of a slaughterhouse belonging to the PHW group (“Wiesenhof”) in Wildeshausen, Lower Saxony, tested positive for the corona virus. The company announced on Tuesday. A series test carried out on Monday was positive for 23 out of 50 employees, said a spokesman for the district. According to the PHW Group, all more than 1100 employees of the slaughterhouse are to be tested for corona infection. PHW holds a majority stake in the Geestland turkey specialties slaughterhouse.

Together with the company, measures are now to be taken to curb the spread of the virus and work out the causes, said District Administrator Carsten Harings (non-party). More than 1100 employees had already been tested in early June, and an infection case was discovered. According to the district, 22 of the 23 currently infected had previously been tested negative. A new employee was not yet part of the tests in early June. To support the further establishment of contacts, the district administration requested additional containment scouts from the Lower Saxony State Health Office.

Contact restrictions lifted in Berlin

After Thuringia and Brandenburg, the contact restrictions in Berlin are no longer applicable. The Senate decided on Tuesday. Up to now, the Corona pandemic meant that a maximum of five people from several households or only members of two households could meet in public in the capital. In most other federal states, contacts are still limited to two households or up to ten people.

And there are also easing for Berlin businesses. Instead of one customer per 20 square meters, the stores are now allowed to admit one customer per 10 square meters of retail space.

Berlin is also imposing a fine on violations of the mask requirement on buses and trains. The obligation to wear mouth and nose protection has been in effect since the end of April. However, violations have not yet been fined.

RKI: Contagion rate has increased due to local outbreaks

The number of infections in Germany had gradually decreased since mid-March. They have risen again in the past few days. Since Sunday, the estimated value for the reproductive factor has been between 2 and 3. The goal is a value of less than 1.0, because then the number of infected people will decrease mathematically.

According to the RKI, the local outbreaks are responsible for the increased infection rate. After all, very few cases have recently been transmitted from many circles – no new cases were even transmitted from 137 circles. In Gütersloh, Göttingen and Berlin-Neukölln, on the other hand, series tests were carried out after the new outbreaks and many other infections were reported, as Ute Rexroth, head of the RKI Department of Surveillance, explains. Poverty and precarious living conditions in particular would greatly accelerate the transmission here. If the number of cases is otherwise low nationwide, this leads to high fluctuations in the R factor.

Regarding outbreaks in slaughterhouses, RKI President Lothar Wieler says that there are indications that in addition to the cramped living conditions of the workers, the cooling temperature and the formation of aerosols can also play a role in the company. So far, however, this has not been scientifically clarified.

Measures to contain viruses must be decided on site, said Wieler. Ute Rexroth emphasizes that the local authorities are very vigilant and cases are recognized relatively early. Which measures would be taken exactly has to be decided considering the overall situation.

According to the RKI, 503 new corona infections were reported on Monday. As a result, 190 862 people in Germany have demonstrably contracted Sars-CoV-2 since the beginning of the crisis. RKI estimates that around 175,700 people have survived the infection.

8895 people infected with the virus have died in Germany so far. However, the number of deaths reported has dropped sharply in recent weeks, said Wieler. The treatment capacities are also good. The measures taken so far in Germany have worked well, says Wieler. “We will have to keep mindfulness for months to come, I assume,” said Wieler when asked.

Laschet announces lockdown for the entire Gütersloh district

After the coronavirus outbreak at the meat processor Tönnies, the authorities are again massively restricting public life in the Gütersloh district. For the first time in Germany, a district will be traced back to the protective measures that had applied a few weeks ago due to the infection, said North Rhine-Westphalia’s Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU).

In the district of Gütersloh, it is the “biggest infection” in the state and in Germany. The new lockdown should initially apply for a week.

By June 30, there would be more clarity to what extent the virus might have spread to people who do not work at Tönnies, said Laschet.

According to the company, around 6,500 people work in the Tönnies meat factory in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, the largest slaughterhouse in Germany. More than 1,300 workers have tested positive for the corona virus. Production was stopped for 14 days. The case had fueled the debate over conditions in the slaughter industry.

According to a spokesman, around half of all employees in the entire Tönnies group of companies work for Tönnies via subcontractors. In total, people from 87 nations work for tonnies. By far the largest groups come from Romania and Poland. According to the information, around a third of the employees of foreign nationality live with their families in Germany.
