Funerals and funerals in a different way

In the Corona crisis, undertakers have to come up with new ideas for saying goodbye to the deceased: Because not everyone can be there due to the current contact restrictions, some funeral services are now being broadcast or recorded via video stream on the Internet, for example, according to undertaker Markus Gebauer from Wolfsburg . “We only rarely accept the offer,” he said. However, he knows colleagues who have asked for streamed funerals since the beginning of the corona pandemic. There is also the possibility of digital pastoral care by phone or chat. Nevertheless, he is happy that people are allowed to go back to the chapels in many places, says Gebauer.

The debate on classroom teaching continues in Schleswig-Holstein

Because of the increasing Corona pollution in schools, the education union GEW and the state parents’ advisory council for high schools are demanding consequences for schools in Schleswig-Holstein. “The Ministry of Education is displacing instead of acting,” said GEW managing director Bernd Schauer of the German Press Agency. “But we cannot simply ignore the growing health risk for everyone involved in school.” The GEW calls for halved classes with high corona numbers. The chairwoman of the state parents’ advisory council for grammar schools, Claudia Pick, is in favor of more and better hybrid lessons, in which part of the class is taught on site and other students are connected via the Internet.

Corona crisis apparently also a danger for addicts

In the corona pandemic, the risk of relapse for former alcoholics to drink again is apparently increasing. “Many people who have been dry for several years have relapsed again in isolation, as reported by the addiction self-help associations in particular,” said Linda Heitmann, managing director of the Hamburg State Office for Addiction Issues, the German Press Agency. Above all, this is due to the great psychological stress caused by the pandemic. According to surveys, many people felt lonely. Then there is job insecurity and sometimes boredom, which leads people to consume more drugs and addictive substances.

Apparently free protective masks for risk groups

In the corona pandemic, the grand coalition wants to equip people from risk groups with protective masks free of charge. According to information from the German Press Agency, this emerges from plans that the Federal Ministry of Health has drawn up together with specialist politicians from the CDU and SPD. According to this, insured persons should be entitled to free masks if they have a significantly increased risk of a serious disease course after a corona infection. The federal government should bear the costs for this. The Bundestag and Bundesrat are due to pass the amendment on Wednesday.

Schleswig-Holstein reports 158 new corona infections

The number of confirmed corona infections in Schleswig-Holstein rose by 158 within one day – 43 cases are assigned to the Pinneberg district. The state government in Kiel announced. The day before, she had confirmed 296 new infections in the country, exactly one week ago 233. The number of deaths related to the Sars-CoV-2 virus rose by one to 219 since the pandemic began.

16,947 new cases confirmed for all of Germany

According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the health authorities in Germany reported 16,947 new corona infections within 24 hours. That is 5,514 fewer cases than the day before (22,461). The number of cases recorded is usually lower on Sundays and Mondays, partly because fewer tests are carried out on the weekend. Last Sunday, the number of new infections reported for the whole of Germany was 16,017. According to the RKI management report, the so-called seven-day R was 1.05 (previous day: 0.99). This means that 100 infected people theoretically infect a good 100 more people. The value represents the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. If it is below 1 for a long time, the infection process subsides.

XFEL Schenefeld: The riddle of the corona protein

At the XFEL research center in Schenefeld, an international team of scientists wants to solve a riddle: What is the structure of the protein that the coronavirus carries in its shell? The researchers want to use the X-ray beam at the XFEL to decipher the structure of this E protein. If the scientists are successful, this could pave the way for the development of a corona drug. If they fail, the protein remains a mystery for the time being.
