Brave or wrong? Ramelows Corona-single-handedly splits the policy

In the rings the right way in the Corona-pandemic Thuringia is ahead and has also announced important relaxations. Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow (Left) wants to from the 6. In June, on a General, country-wide Corona-protection legislation without. Thus, the previous rules to the minimum intervals, the Wear of the mouth, nose and would no longer apply protection, as well as contact restrictions. The voices urging caution and to keep Thuringia, way this time is dangerous in the process. Another fear: It may cause a regional patchwork quilt.

Way out of the crisis

The new Normal – we must learn to live with the Virus

In Germany, crisis, contact, restrictions had been imposed in the Corona for the citizens in the public space. Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the Minister presidents of the Länder had agreed at the beginning of may, this to 5. To extend the June after that, Ramelow wants to change course in Thuringia now. On his website he wrote: “The Motto should be: ‘From to Offered, state compulsion to self-verantwortetem moderation.'”

Instead of the previous country-wide schemes, it should in Thuringia from 6. June to regional measures, depending on the infection happen at the site. A limit of 35 new HIV infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week of the interview.

The SPD criticized Ramelows decision

SPD-health politician Karl Lauterbach holds the inroads of Thuringia is wrong. “This is clearly a mistake,” said Lauterbach, the “Saarbrücker Zeitung”. “Because we have no news for in relation to the severity of the Virus.” Thuringia place the measures in question, “which one has to owe the entire success of the Moment”.

Michael Roth (SPD), Minister of state for Europe at the Federal foreign office, tweeted on Sunday that he wishes all the Thuringian interior and Thuringians, and those who visited the country, a lot of health. “Federalism makes it fun and shows what he’s made of. Who now protects the many Reasonable prior to the few Irresponsible?”

Ramelow was in the “Bild am Sonntag”, the scheduled end of the current infection situation, which justified such a loose law. “The success gives us right-with the hard action – forcing us now, but also to realistic consequences and to Act.”

40 Infected after worship

With a view to cases of infection after the worship service and the restaurant, visit the Green Bundestag group chief Katrin Göring-Eckardt, the countries called on to review their rules to protect against the Coronavirus on the effectiveness. “Many of you have driven the loose forward,” said Goering-Eckardt, the Newspapers of the Funke media group. “Now you can see that we are slipping away from the Situation.”

After a worship service in a congregation of Baptists in Frankfurt am Main infected more than 40 people with the Coronavirus. After visiting a restaurant in lower Saxony, Moormerland at least ten people were tested positive for the Coronavirus. The district assumes that the people have been infected in the restaurant attached.

“The cases show that We must continue to be vigilant,” said Göring-Eckardt. “It is crucial that the hygiene concepts are carefully adhered to, and also sufficient test capacities are available. The countries have a duty to check whether their rules are appropriate to protect the citizens or need to be adapted.”

“Successes in the fight against the disease is not negligent in the game”

FDP parliamentary group Deputy Stephan Thomae said on Sunday, Thuringia preceding “a bold step”. The further development had to be vigilant to be observed. “If an infection can be fixed to certain counties, places, or even only facilities limit, however, it is not mandatory to put a whole state with all the consequences into an artificial coma.”

From other Federal States at the end of reactions came back. “I think a complete fast easing is premature,” said Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the country’s interior Minister Lorenz Caffier (CDU), the “picture on Sunday”. Baden-württemberg’s Minister of the interior Thomas Strobl (CDU), told the newspaper: “I am grateful for any loosening that we can answer. But we must be prudent and careful.” The Virus is still among us, the danger is still not banned. “We must not put the achieved successes in the fight against the disease through negligence on the game.”

The Saar Prime Minister, Tobias, Hans (CDU) said the “world”: “Our Job in politics is now not alone, to satisfy longings – even if they are comprehensible, but more sober, responsible, and science directed to weigh and society to help this pandemic to get through”. In all of the relaxations would apply: “We need to continue to state-specified rules, so that the caution of the commandments to be adhered to, to avoid regional lock-downs, as well as increased death rates.”

In Thuringia, there are also critical voices. “This seems to me a trip to the minefield,” wrote Jena’s mayor Thomas Nitzsche (FDP) on Facebook. “Where it breaks, there’s a retaining locally a second Lockdown. Should it really be our strategy in Thuringia?” In the fight against the Coronavirus Jena was as Thuringia’s second-largest city nationwide pioneer in mask duty.
