Corona virus in Bavaria: National holiday in Austria - Melanie Huml expresses concerns

Update from October 25th, 9.48pm:

Austrians

celebrate

their

national holiday

on Monday

.

Therefore,

Health Minister Melanie Huml

(CSU) has concerns that the Austrian neighbors could use the day off for a shopping trip in Germany.

But there are no exceptions to the

quarantine rules

, said

Huml

on Sunday.

"Even if we like to have our Austrian neighbors with us under normal circumstances -

cross-border travel

just for shopping trips is

not a good idea

with the current

corona infection

situation

and is not allowed", emphasized the

Minister of Health

.

The

quarantine

obligation applies to everyone who

enters

Bavaria

from a

foreign risk area

, underlined

Huml

.

A purchase, however short, is no exception.

The rule says that people who have been in an official

risk area

for more than 48 hours

are obliged

to go

into

quarantine

.

The Minister underlined: “And that is the case for people

living

in

Austria

.

As a result, the 48 exception rule does not generally apply to people who live permanently in a

risk

area and enter Bavaria from there. " 

Huml

appealed, “I ask everyone to use common sense.

Now is not the

time to

travel

and meet.

We want to prevent the

virus from

spreading

as much as possible. "

treated

again in the Bavarian hospitals

.

This worries me, even if

sufficient treatment

capacities are

currently

available for the patients. ”In the meantime, 20 Bavarian cities and districts have exceeded the threshold of 100 infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days.

The total number of infections reported since the beginning of the epidemic climbed over the

90,000 mark

over the weekend

Update from October 25, 11:40

a.m.:

The medical practices of the Association of

Statutory Health Insurance Physicians

(KVB)

in Bavaria have

reported

around

709,000 voluntary corona tests

since

the state government began

the

test program

three months ago.

The Bavarian Health Minister

Melanie Huml (CSU)

announced this Sunday.

The

voluntary tests

are

paid

for by the state government and not by

health insurers

, as they are intended for citizens without symptoms.

How many of the voluntary tests were actually

positive

has yet to be evaluated separately.

The offer was

particularly popular during the

summer holidays

, as many

returning travelers

had undergone

voluntary

corona tests

.

Corona in Bavaria: Hundreds of thousands of voluntary tests - Minister Huml (CSU) emphasizes the meaning of the procedure

Both politicians and doctors had repeatedly

expressed

criticism

of the

symptom-independent mass tests

.

However, Huml stuck to the statement that these are

enormously helpful

in identifying and preventing

possible

chains of infection at an

early stage.

Update from October 25, 11.20 a.m.:

After a

soccer game

, 23 people celebrated in front of a club house in

Illertissen

and therefore received a

complaint

 Infection

Protection Act.

"The

party

of players and fans was

in full swing

outside,

" said a police spokesman on Sunday.

“They set up

beer

table

sets in

front of the clubhouse, played loud

music

and 

consumed alcohol.

“The officials broke the celebration on Saturday evening.

According to information,

private celebrations

are currently

limited to a maximum of

five people

or

two households in

the Neu-Ulm district

Corona in Bavaria: new curfew senseless?

Landlord from Augsburg is suing against "dark red" measures

Update from October 25th, 10.30 a.m .:

curfew

in the

catering trade

from

9 p.m.,

which

should now take effect

in

Bavaria

when a city or a district has a

7-day incidence

of over 100,

senseless

?

The

Augsburg restaurateur

Bernhard Spielberger is of this opinion - and is

therefore

suing

the

“dark red” measure

announced

by

Prime Minister Söder

.

The landlord had already

successfully enforced

a lawsuit against the prevailing

corona measures

in May

.

Should he get right again, the

regulation would

probably have to

be adjusted throughout Bavaria

.

Update from October 25th, 7.55 a.m.:

The Bavarian capital Munich has

exceeded

the

7-day incidence value

of

100

new infections per 100,000 inhabitants

Robert Koch Institute reported

on Sunday morning (25.20.).

Accordingly, the value is now

100.6

.

The

corona traffic light,

which Prime Minister Markus Söder held at his press conference to introduce more stringent corona measures, now jumps to

"dark red"

for the state capital

.

On Saturday the incidence was 98.3.

Corona in Munich: Incidence value over 100 - curfew is brought forward

Munich: Corona numbers continue to rise - culture industry is hit hard

This is

a bitter blow,

especially for the already badly shaken

culture industry

, because the number of spectators admitted to concerts or theater performances was

200 people

and is therefore limited to only a quarter

.

Exceptions from the regulations are

demonstrations

, lectures at the

universities

and

church services,

where the strictest

distance

rules

and the

mask requirement still

apply.

The new regulations apply from next Monday until at least the end of the week.

Even if the state capital falls below the incidence value of 100 again, the

preventive

measures will remain

in force

for

five more days

.

Corona in Bavaria: "dark red" alert now in four districts and cities - Söder sends a video message

Update from October 24, 2020, 4:06 p.m.:

In the

coronavirus

pandemic,

fifteen Bavarian cities and districts have

now exceeded

the threshold of 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants

in the past seven days.

That is four more than on Friday, as can be seen from the overview published on Saturday by the State Office for Health.

According to the Corona traffic light, this threshold value means the status "dark red" and results in everyday restrictions for the residents of the respective municipalities: the curfew applies from 9 p.m. instead of 10 p.m., and alcohol is also prohibited in public places from 9 p.m.

The development in Swabia is particularly noticeable

: among the newly added municipalities are the district of

Augsburg

(104.16), the district of

Donau-Ries

(103.9) and the city of

Memmingen

(115.65).

The fourth new 100th municipality is the

Rosenheim

district

(103.32).

Corona is still spreading fastest in

Berchtesgadener Land

, where the 7-day incidence value is a good 282 according to the RKI and just under 257 according to the LGL. The difference is mainly due to the fact that the infection rates are calculated at different times.

The health system in Berchtesgaden is not currently overloaded either.

Currently, 10 Covid-19 patients are being treated as inpatients in the clinics in the district, two of them in the intensive care unit.

"There is no new death to complain about," reported the district office on Saturday.

Corona in Bavaria: Söder makes citizens responsible - values ​​in Munich are approaching critical levels

2136 people have been newly

infected

with the

virus

since Friday (October 23)

Upper Bavaria

.

In the meantime, 2,739 people have died of the disease in the Free State.

Corona in Bavaria: The number of cases is increasing extremely in Munich

The

Corona *

numbers

that

Munich

reported for Friday are anything but reassuring.

There are 223 newly tested positive people compared to the previous day.

This increases the number of confirmed cases since the start of the pandemic to 14,868.

The

7-day incidence

increases to 98.3.

Munich

is only just below the “dark red” warning threshold.

Also the number of

reproductions *

of 1.25 is still at a high level.

In # Munich, 223 new #coronavirus cases were confirmed for Friday, October 23rd.

Corona virus in Bavaria: Söder appeals to the discipline of the citizens

Meanwhile,

Prime Minister Markus Söder

(CSU), who has already been sharply criticized for his policy in the past *,

swears

the citizens of Bavaria to continue to adhere to the Corona * rules.

"Anyone who

adheres

to the measures

taken

can play a major role in achieving something for everyone," said the

CSU boss

in a video message on Saturday.

He knows that many

can no longer hear

the topic of

Corona

, but it doesn't help, you have to go through it now.

His credo is: "Less alcohol, less partying, fewer contacts and simply more mask".

Video message on Corona: If we all take part, we can get through the winter well.

We are better prepared than in the past.

Let us be considerate of each other, be patient and give others optimism.

"Everyone has to be considerate of each other,"

Söder implores the solidarity of the citizens

.

The Prime Minister is also positive.

We are much better prepared today than at the beginning of the

corona pandemic

.

The old people's and nursing homes are much better protected.

This is followed by a renewed appeal to the citizens: "If we do more now, we will have to live with fewer final consequences later."

Corona virus in Bavaria: Söder again defends the mask requirement in schools

“We don't want any economic damage.

We want to keep daycare centers and schools open, ”continues

Söder

.

But you have to do a lot for that.

"More

mask

creates more normality", is

the key to this goal

for the

CSU boss

.

At the end of the video speech,

Söder

is once again insistent.

“We can decide as much as we want.

That doesn't help if you don't all take part. ”And with

caution

and

prudence

, the citizens of Bavaria can best get through the coming months, is Söder's last call to the people in the Free State.
