You know, as in Berlin court bans anti-lockdown protests?
These Querdenker (people who think outside the box) keep thinking outside the box so it’s time to box them up and move them out.
Judges in the German capital have moved to ban a number of weekend demonstrations amid fears they will lead to a rise in coronavirus infections. Police expect protesters to travel to Berlin nonetheless…
The upper court said the Querdenker movement was characterized throughout Germany “by the fact that the participants used them to violate legal norms created to contain the risk of infection in a way that attracted public attention, in particular by disregarding the social distance requirement and the mask requirement.”
To the drop in covidvirus infections in Germany. The 7-day incidence nationwide is below 35 Covid-19 infections per 100,000 people, and dropping.
BUT what is not expressly allowed is verboten! We’re still from the government and we’re still here to help. Drop that beer and raise your hands!
Germany: Hamburg police clear neighborhood after thousands show up to party – Police closed streets in a popular Hamburg neighborhood after partygoers breaking coronavirus restrictions were cleared from a city park.
“A lot of alcohol was being consumed and there were numerous breaches of coronavirus regulations.”
In Germany. And no, it’s not the COVID-19 Grinch who did it. It was that other one with her evil elves below.
Germany set for nationwide hard lockdown from Wednesday: report – Germany is set to close most shops from Wednesday as it tightens lockdown curbs, according to a draft government proposal. Chancellor Angela Merkel is to meet with federal and state leaders on Sunday morning.
“Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more.”
Coronavirus: German ICUs see 40% more patients than in April – Intensive care units (ICU) at some German hospitals are reaching full capacity with seriously ill COVID-19 patients, the country’s hospital federation said. A high percentage of nurses are off sick or in quarantine.
COVID-19-wise. It’s good to be the Klassenbeste (top of the class).
Sure, the number of infections keeps climbing here but at least the German populice is doing as it is told = everything right.
Germany Passes 1 Million Coronavirus Cases As Merkel Warns Of ‘A Tough Winter’ – Germany officially passed 1 million confirmed cases of the coronavirus on Friday as the country’s daily totals remain high through the first month of what the government calls “lockdown light.” Since the beginning of November, schools and most shops have remained open, but bars, gyms and other indoor leisure centers have closed, with restaurants only open for takeaway orders.
On Wednesday, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the country will have to live with these restrictions through at least Dec. 20.
A fresh coronavirus high of 20,000. The Germans are still high on their last coronavirus high (thinking that their restrictions will get this under control), but still.
New cases in Germany climbed to a fresh high, while unprecedented numbers of Covid-19 patients are in intensive care in Belgium…
Germany registered a record increase in new cases, days after the government imposed the toughest restrictions since a national lockdown in the spring.
Europe’s biggest economy had 31,480 new infections in the 24 hours through Thursday morning, bringing the total to 608,611, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The figures have fluctuated wildly in recent weeks, with daily infections falling to the lowest in almost two weeks on Wednesday.
Remember: Corona only spikes in the United States because, well, we do everything wrong.
Not so in ze Europe. Take Germany, for example. They’ve done everything right so far (face masks, social distancing, strict restrictions, etc). The Germans even did a big lockdown already, just a few months back. And now, because the first lockdown worked so well and was so much fun, I guess, Germany is going to lockdown again. Only this time they refer to it as a “lockdown light.” Light as in restaurants, bars, hotels, gyms etc. will no longer have any guests and professional sports events will be held without spectators. And everybody stays home, of course. Sound vaguely familiar? It should. It is. But maybe this light lockdown will be more effective than that heavy one they did first. It’s all a question of having a positive attitude. Something Germans are world famous for.
Germany to go into circuit-break lockdown as coronavirus surges – Germany will impose an emergency month-long lockdown that includes the closure of restaurants, gyms and theatres to reverse a spike in coronavirus cases that risks overwhelming hospitals, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday.
Not. Keep those face masks on while watching the numbers climb, Germany.
14,000 new Covid19 infections a day, and climbing.
Germany grapples with coronavirus spike months after it was hailed for good practice.
After being lauded for its response to Covid-19 after Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government flattened the curve this spring, Germany is now grappling with more than 10,000 daily coronavirus infections, the most it has seen since the outbreak started, and admissions to hospital intensive care units have doubled in the last two weeks.
“There are already speeches being held praising the German success, but it is not quite clear where it came from.”
Corona-wise, I mean (around 12,000 new infections a day now in Germany these days – highest rate here yet). You know, face masks, social distancing and all that?
Germans Are Panic Buying Toilet Paper And Disinfectants As Covid-19 Surges Again – Unlike the April lockdown, where massive hoarding led to empty store shelves, German retailers claim that they are better prepared this time.
“After the events we saw earlier this year, we are monitoring changes in demand more closely than ever to ensure that nothing is in short supply.”
“Will Germany’s effective Covid strategy work again as it enters a second wave?” It didn’t work the first time, folks (they’re up to 7,000+ new infections a day now, and climbing). Even though the Germans, as Klassenbeste (best in class), did everything right. Right? Face masks, social distancing, etc.
It could almost make one think that these face masks don’t help.
“The first wave taught us that if politicians and scientists work together, they have more chance of beating this virus.”
