Corona Deaths In Germany Completely Out Of Control

I mean the numbers.

Corona

What’s a panic monger to do? How can a media mind manipulator control the numbers when the numbers at your disposal are only 1 or 2 or 0? All you can do is not report this unfortunate fact and emphasise the number of infections instead – infections that stubbornly refuse to lead to death, but still.

Immer weniger Corona-Tote in Deutschland – Fewer and fewer Corona deaths in Germany.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Vs. Coronavirus Anxiety Syndrome

Which syndrome has Germans more disturbed?

Trump

Like, duh. TDS wins hands down.

Germans fear Donald Trump more than coronavirus – Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump tops the list of things Germans fear the most, a new survey found.

Trump ranks number one this year on Germans’ list of fears at 53%. The US president has topped the R+V fear scale as early as 2018.

Warning: Nationwide Warning System Doesn’t Work

No sirens sounded all throughout Germany yesterday as the country conducted its first nationwide emergency warning system test since 1990.

Warning

Nor did the apps that were supposed to send alerts to people’s phones during the test function.

An anonymous spokesman for the German government was satisfied with the reuslts, however. “Let this be a warning to us all,” he said.

One Twitter user added: “Anyone who didn’t hear any sirens will receive a warning signal by fax or mail in the next 14 days.”

 

V-Shaped

You know, V. Like V are having the worst economic downturn since World War II.

But whether the German stimulus measures “have bucked the Corona crisis” or not remains to be seen.

It can’t be too much of a crisis anymore though. Not if all the brothels are being allowed to open again. Come what may.

Several states in northern Germany are set to lift or ease pandemic restrictions on prostitution, with North Rhine-Westphalia now allowing sex workers to resume their business. The decision comes in the wake of several court cases filed by sex workers, who argued the restrictions unfairly discriminated against them.

But If We Stop Nord Steam 2…

We’ll be agreeing with Donald Trump!

Nord Stream 2: Why Germany may pull plug on Russian pipeline – For the first time since building began almost a decade ago, the future of the pipeline looks threatened.

Ironically, one reason that many Germans support the pipeline is because its greatest critic is US President Donald Trump. He is disliked in Germany and his rants against the pipeline only serve to boost its popularity.

Many voters suspect he wants it scrapped in order to sell American fuel to Germany instead. Mrs Merkel has to avoid the impression that she is giving in to pressure from Mr Trump.

 

More Debt Is The New Normal

In Germany too.

Schulden

The govenment might not directly admit it but the days when they at least strove to reach a balanced budget (black zero) are over.

Germany’s spending to counter the coronavirus crisis and modernize its economy means the country shouldn’t return to a balanced budget anytime soon, according to a senior Finance Ministry official…

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government abandoned its balanced-budget policy this year and is set to borrow about 218 billion euros ($258 billion). A deficit of more than 80 billion euros is set for next year to fight the fallout from the pandemic, people familiar with the matter have said…

Germany’s constitutional debt brake obliges the government to keep debt under control. In good times, the rule allows for a structural deficit of 0.35% of gross domestic product. In times of recession, new borrowing can go up in proportion with the economic decline.

“A balanced budget isn’t obligatory.”

Germany joins space race as Munich start-up begins rocket production – Isar Aerospace bets on boom in small satellites and aims for launch by end of 2021.

Germany will join the commercial space race on Monday as production begins on what could become the first privately built rocket developed in the country to be fired into orbit…

The first German rocket to reach outer space was a version of the V2 in 1942. It crossed the Kármán Line, where space begins 100km above the earth’s surface, but did not reach orbit.
