Söder: “We have to decide”

On Monday evening Söder claimed in a television Interview that the Federal government and the countries now need to act more quickly. “I think we need a bit more pace in the German policy.”

The challenge was “greater than intended”. But: “We can’t debate endlessly about it, we have to decide.” With a view to responsible politicians and representatives of authorities, Söder said there was in the countries of “the one or the other, you have to convince”.

He was glad that in the end everything flap “and that we are now in unison,” said CSU chief.

The recommendations of the experts will act immediately

Output from the lock as in some other European countries, Söder castle again. “I can give you no guarantee what is in a week,” he said. At the same time but stressed: “We will always act reasonably, we always act according to the recommendation of the virologists.”

Italian scientists criticize hesitant Federal government

The late Intervention of the German government had criticized on Monday, several Italian scientists. Roberto Burioni, one of the most famous virologists in Italy, warned against the impending danger to underestimate. “Italy has done that for a week,” said Burioni, this error should not make other countries.

Similarly, Stephan Ortner, Director of the research Institute at Eurac Research in Bolzano said. Germany’s need for “a full braking, a Lockdown, at least, as Italy has now” demanded the scientist. “If Germany does not do that immediately, they will not receive you there the Numbers in the handle.”

At the same time Ortner warned of further hesitant to take Action: “half-hearted measures now can harm more than you benefit. The longer you wait with the curfew, the more people will then, be when she comes, already infected and in homes for more to infect.”

Ortner and Burioni both calling for a coordinated strategy of the EU member States to contain the Virus. Without strict measures in Europe, a country could achieve, although at times success, said Burioni. But then the exciter will return from a less strict neighbouring country.

EU Council President Charles Michel also spoke to this: He demanded from the member States and more coordination for protective measures against the Corona of a pandemic. Also at the border of “locking, we have to harmonize the measures as far as possible,” said Michel in a French Radio France Inter in front of a Video-conference of the EU heads of state and government on Tuesday. In Detail, the countries could approach quite different, but it should always be to slow down the spread of the Virus.
