Update from September 29, 9:40 p.m.:

Who pays for the

fine

that has now been decided

for incorrect information on contact lists

?

This question was

insufficiently answered

by the federal and state governments

at the press conference after the

Corona summit

.

Now a government spokesman specified: "False information about your person from guests in restaurants and bars will in future be subject to a fine of at least 50 euros, which

the guests have to pay

." are "asked to check the plausibility of the information".

First report from September 29th:

Berlin - In view of the increasing numbers in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel advised *

with the heads of government of the federal states about new rules in the

corona crisis

*.

It was already heard in advance that

Merkel

had declared at a meeting of the presidium of the CDU * that it had to be "brutally cracked down", especially in regions with many

new infections

. At a specially convened press conference

on Tuesday afternoon

,

Merkel

announced

the new measures to combat it of the

coronavirus

*.

Corona in Germany: fines possible for incorrect information

The basic rules were retained, said

Merkel

.

The

distance

requirement

of 1.5 meters

and the obligation to wear mouth and nose protection * in closed rooms

continue to apply

.

There is a new

fine

of at least

50 euros

for people who deliberately falsify personal information in restaurants and bars, for example giving their name incorrectly.

Restaurant operators should also check whether the information is plausible.

The data is collected to trace possible contacts with infected people.

Thuringia demands that it be stipulated nationwide that the information may only be used for


infection protection.

Corona in Germany: New rules after Corona summit - a maximum of 50 participants at celebrations

In addition, the federal and state governments have agreed to set

upper limits

for the number of participants in private celebrations, in two stages.

If there are more than

35 new infections per 100,000 people

in a district within seven days, a

maximum of 50 people

should be allowed to celebrate together

in public or rented rooms such as restaurants

.

For parties in private rooms, a maximum number of 25 people is "strongly recommended" - but not mandatory.

If there are

more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants

in a district within seven days

, a maximum of

25 people

should be allowed to celebrate in public or rented rooms.

For celebrations in private rooms, an upper limit of ten participants is "strongly recommended".

"Exceptions can be made for announced celebrations with

hygiene plans

approved

by the health department

." Stricter local or state regulations are possible.

In addition, the federal government announced a

subsidy program for ventilation systems

.

These should be designed for

virus protection

.

The program will be reviewed after a few weeks and possibly revised.

In addition, there should be a new test strategy for teachers and educators, as

schools

and

daycare centers should

be kept open.

Coronavirus in Germany: early warning system and AHA formula

If there are more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in a district or an independent city within seven days, "a consistent restriction concept" should be implemented immediately - possibly only for one affected facility.

The federal states should

“set up a suitable early warning system” in

order


to avoid

exceeding the 50-person threshold as far as possible

.

North Rhine-Westphalia Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) and Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) had proposed a corona warning light.

The

AHA formula

advises a distance of 1.5 meters, hygiene such as thorough hand washing and wearing

everyday masks

.

Now two new letters are to be added:

"C" for Corona warning app and "L" for ventilation

.

Regular ventilation is also recommended in the cold season.

Restrictions after Corona summit: Second shutdown should "be prevented at all costs"

"We know that we

are living

in a

pandemic

- and that for the foreseeable future," said

Merkel

at the press conference.

Much had been learned in the past weeks and months, but was aware that Germany was going to be a difficult time.

The economy should, however, be kept running as far as possible.

It is important to act “regionally, specifically and precisely”.

A second

shutdown

for the entire country must "absolutely be prevented."

For

Markus Söder,

Germany is at an “important fork in the road”.

The rules presented are under the motto "Caution instead of recklessness".

At the press conference,

Söder also

addressed a request he had made to the

Robert Koch Institute

.

The Bavarian Prime Minister wants a traffic light system * for travel warnings.

This is important for planning holidays, so far the RKI has always issued such warnings overnight.

Merkel

and

Söder

, however, also pleaded to the Germans that vacation at the moment - especially travel to

risk areas

- is not appropriate.
