SAARSKA in western Germany was the first state in 16 countries to stand out from a closed state. Its leaders proved the rationality of mitigation measures with a low infection rate and extensive testing for covid-19.
From Tuesday, open restaurants, terraces, cinemas, theaters, gymnasiums and other public places are allowed for those who show a negative rapid antigen test for no more than 24 hours.
Negative tests in groups of 10 people will be able to gather outside.
Saarland Prime Minister Tobias Hans said: “One year after the pandemic, we need to consider more than just closure and containment.” He added, “No coronavirus infection will be detected. “
Compared with national conditions, the infection rate in Saarland is very low.
The incidence of new infections per 100,000 residents is less than 100 in 7 days, compared with 88.2 on Sundays.
