This measure, which appeared in the “Law on the Prevention of Infectious Diseases” passed by the Bundestag on Wednesday, has made many reservations in a country that is clearly under the federal system.
This is the first of Germany’s policies against Covid-19: a year after the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, a curfew will be imposed in the country. It is very controversial that this measure appeared in the new version of the law on the prevention of infectious diseases passed by the Federal Parliament on Wednesday, April 21 after heated parliamentary debates.
Initially, the German government hoped that the curfew would start at 9 pm. However, in the face of reservations caused by the project, most of its people, including the conservatives (CDU-CSU) and the Social Democratic Party (SPD), have amended the bill. Not only does the curfew start at 10 p.m., but it is still possible to go out for walks and participate in sports alone until midnight.
This measure will apply to all administrative regions (county) The incidence rate exceeded 100 new cases per 100,000 population for three consecutive days. Today, this is the case for the vast majority of people, and the average incidence in Germany is about 160, and the third wave of Kuwait-19 continues to sweep the entire Rhine.
Other provisions are included in the law passed by the Bundestag on Wednesday. Regarding the school, the course will have to switch to a distance of more than 165 (instead of 200 as originally planned). For non-essential businesses, the principle of “click and collect” will be imposed from an incidence rate higher than 150. Finally, in a private environment, you will only be able to invite others outside your home.
However, this new law will not interfere with the daily lives of Germans. In fact, in most states, many restrictions already apply. In recent days, some countries have also imposed curfews. This country has recently crossed the barrier of 80,000 deaths caused by Covid-19, and the utilization rate of resuscitation services has approached the highest level during the second epidemic wave. By the end of 2020.
