Munich - The corona virus requires distance . Distance to our fellow human beings and public life in general. The federal government decided on a nationwide ban on rapprochement up to a maximum of 1.5 meters. In addition to other measures, the ban on contact is intended to slow down the spread of the virus .
Claus Kleber also reports in the Today Journal from 23.03. of these arrangements. They largely worked well, the news anchor said. Nevertheless, there were some places " tightly packed ". But not in a city or on the train. The pictures in the ZDF's Today Journal show people with little distance between them. "Two meters is not the space between, but the space for two people," says Kleber.

Corona virus: "tightly crowded" in an airplane
It is from Lufthansa photos that are shown in the ZDF news. The domestic flight is full of people. There can be no question of a safe distance here - the plane is obviously "sold out". Even after landing, the bus transfer from the plane to the airport building is nestled close together. Apparently, the Federal Government's measures do not apply to the airline to the same extent. Or is it? “Can they do that?” Claus Kleber asks a legal expert at ZDF. Sarah Tacke affirms and says that legally this domestic flight is okay.
There were no explicit regulations for airplanes and thus Lufthansa in the regulations of the federal government. Lufthansa responded to the broadcaster's request.

Nevertheless, it is surprising, according to the legal expert, to see two such opposing behaviors. On the one hand there are the regulations that bring a lot of restrictions in the private sector. On the other hand, there are such overcrowded means of transport .
