There will be no easing of existing restrictions in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic before April 20. Chancellor-in-chief Helge Braun (CDU) told the “Daily mirror“Older people would have to reckon with contact restrictions for much longer than younger people,” added Braun.

Braun sees the development of the infection rate in the Federal Republic as a yardstick for a turnaround and a decision-making basis for easing restrictions. “If we can slow the rate of infection so that we have ten, twelve or more days to double, we know we’re on the right track.” In the end, the number of cases doubled approximately every three days.

Braun added that he had the impression that Germany was on the right track because the population adhered to the rules in an exemplary manner. “And that’s why I am convinced that we will see success in a few days.”

In order to contain the virus in the medium term, Braun plans to use a mix of measures practiced in South Korea. “They used digital tracking, which you can find out about in a fully automated manner if you have had contact with infected people.” In addition, the country is testing consistently and extensively on Corona.

Braun did not mention that in countries such as Korea or China, where the number of cases has declined sharply according to public figures, many people in public spaces also wear respirators.

Here Meanwhile, more and more German virologists are advising to wear masks. Because many corona infected people, if at all, only develop symptoms after two weeks of incubation. During this time you could have unwittingly infected many other people.

According to experts, even simple fabric masks could significantly reduce such cascades of infection. According to a recent study by Cambridge University, they still protect about half as good as conventional surgical masks.
