Chancellery chief Braun calls for tougher measures in corona hotspots
Chancellery chief Helge Braun has spoken out in favor of stricter corona rules in hotspots in view of the persistently high number of corona infections. Because a “lockdown of this kind” does not work in the long term, “at least in the hotspots, really clear tightening”, said the CDU politician on Sunday evening in the “Bild” talk “The right questions”. Every region, every federal state and every district must have a dynamic that quickly falls below 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week.
If there is a willingness on the part of the federal states to do something together against the hotspots, then the federal government will be there immediately, Braun said. Bavaria’s Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) had previously discussed another Prime Minister’s Conference before Christmas. One will “probably” need another conference before Christmas, said Söder on Sunday after a special meeting of his cabinet in Munich. One must talk again about what happens at Christmas and especially over New Year’s Eve.
So far, a new prime ministerial conference is planned for January 4th. At their last conference on November 25, the federal and state governments had only generally agreed that even more stringent measures would be taken in the event of particularly high infection levels with an incidence of over 200 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week. Several countries have already taken steps on their own.
Looking at New Year’s Eve, Braun said there should be no parties. The federal and state governments had agreed to allow ten people plus children to attend family reunions from December 23 to January 1. The head of the Chancellery emphasized that the leeway was intended for people who have to work over Christmas. However, this regulation should not be a gateway for millions of others to celebrate New Year’s Eve parties. Braun advertised Christmas visits until 27./28. December limit. The Bavarian cabinet has limited the planned easing to the period from 23 to 26 December.
Braun expects the 2021 pandemic to “gradually lose its horror”. “But no one can say how far we will really get.” If particularly vulnerable groups were vaccinated in spring, one could “get very, very far”. If summer continues to help get through this time, he is confident that autumn will no longer have to work with such restrictions.
