Because of the

lockdown

,

the

hairdressing salons

in the state of

Bremen

are also

closed.

On Wednesday,

however

, the

public order office

surprisingly confirmed: Hairdressers are allowed to visit their customers at home and cut their hair there.

The local

Chamber of Crafts

is also amazed

.

Since the decree was issued on December 16, "it was assumed that all services in the field of non-medical personal hygiene are prohibited".

Corona in Germany: Home visits from the hairdresser in Bremen allowed

At the same time, the Chamber of Bremen's hairdressers is warning against taking orders for

home visits as

soon as possible

.

"Consider the health

risk

if you go into the private environment of the customer!" In addition, it is uncertain how long this exemption will exist.

A look at the Bremen Ordinance shows that at one point it has closed all non-medical body care businesses.

It's about “hairdressers, cosmetic studios, massage practices, tattoo studios and nail studios”.

Elsewhere, handicrafts and services are generally declared permissible.

Lockdown in Germany: After a hairdresser license in Bremen - Chamber of Crafts warns

Suitable

corona hygiene measures

Original article from January 27th

Osnabrück - The extended Corona * lockdown in Germany lasts until February 14th.

How it will proceed after that is still completely unclear.

Virologist

and epidemiologist

Alexander Kekulé

has now made a clear recommendation: Despite the

corona mutations

, he recommends a

lockdown end

from mid-February.

Corona in Germany: Virologist Kekulé recommends lockdown end from mid-February

“I think it is possible that

daycare centers, schools

, shops and

restaurants will

gradually

open again

from mid-February

.

Not everywhere at once, but initially only in regions with particularly

low case numbers

and well-established health authorities, ”suggests the director of the Institute for Medical Microbiology at Halle University Hospital in an interview with

Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung (NOZ)

.

“Gatherings of up to ten or 20 people would also be conceivable if new instruments were used at the same time.

“With this, Kekulé is alluding to

rapid tests

and online registration for participants at private events.

The virologist is certain: With consistent preparation

,

the corona lockdown *

can be ended from mid-

February

- "and switch to a less drastic strategy."

Corona mutation in Germany: virologist calls for more speed with vaccination

According to Kekulé, the

current

corona measures

are most likely sufficient to sufficiently reduce the number of cases for a lockdown to end.

Such a change in strategy is also necessary in order to regain greater acceptance for the measures in critical citizens.

In view of the

virus mutations

, Kekulé urged more speed with

vaccination

.

"We have to vaccinate as soon as possible because the virus is constantly developing." At the same time, he emphasized: "But no matter which variant is sneaking around the house: explosive growth will only return if we

carelessly

open

a door or a window

for

Corona *

Leave it open. ”It is also important that

Germany

“ does not fall into a permanent lockdown ”in

view of the new

Corona mutations

.

Lockdown in Germany: virologist Kekulé criticizes no-Covid strategy

On the other hand, the virologist criticizes the strategy of practically eradicating the coronavirus as completely exaggerated.

His argumentation: “With the timetable of the zero-corona advocates, we would be in lockdown for another two to three months.

Nobody can take that, and that is unworldly. "

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) 

received 13,202 new corona infections

 within one day.

In addition, according to the RKI, 

982 new deaths were

 recorded

 in

Germany

within 24 hours 

.

There was 

 a significant

increase

 in

new infections

compared to yesterday (6408) 

.

The 

7-day incidence

 for Germany was

101.0

on Wednesday morning 

.

The federal government also sees great corona dangers - even if the number of cases is currently falling.

Chancellor Angela Merkel is now focusing on travel.
