The current Corona measures were heatedly discussed at Markus Lanz.

Baden-Württemberg's Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann was particularly pissed off on one topic.

  • A

    tough lockdown has been

    in place in Germany

    since

    December 16

    .

  • Recently, the number of

    infections has

    decreased significantly and the number of

    infections

    has eased somewhat

    in many federal states

    .

  • Due to the falling number of

    Corona

    cases, school openings are heatedly discussed.

Hamburg - In the last few days, the declining

corona infection numbers *

gave cause for hope again.

Therefore, the relaxation of corona measures is being discussed more and more often.

In the talk show with

Markus Lanz

, possible school

openings

and Baden-Württemberg's

going it alone were

heatedly discussed.

Especially the

green *

-

Prime Minister

Winfried Kretschmann

fell on his emotional reaction.

Markus Lanz: Winfried Kretschmann loses his composure in the talk

It's a topic that many quickly get emotional about - the

Corona *

measures

and the associated school closings.

For many parents, the current

restrictions are

an enormous burden.

A burden that will remain at least until February

14th

, because that is how long the current measures should apply nationwide.

But the state government around Prime Minister

Winfried Kretschmann

already

prepared a paper for

the extension of the

corona lockdown in

mid-January that provides a different path.

In

Baden-Württemberg

, the primary schools and daycare centers are to

be reopened

from February

1st

, regardless of the joint resolution proposed by the federal and state governments.

The final decision should not be made until January

28th,

but the schools are

expected to

open given the current infection rate (incidence of 86.9 as of January 27, 2021) in

Baden-Württemberg

.

Secondary schools and vocational schools are not due to reopen until February 14th.

Kretschmann's

solo effort in the matter of

Corona

met with a wide media response and a lot of criticism.

At

Markus Lanz *

, the Prime Minister seized the opportunity and defended the corona measures in his state.

Winfried Kretschmann at Markus Lanz: "Now I just have to be clear"

Kretschmann got

emotional when

Lanz

spoke to him about his plan to open schools earlier than agreed at the ministerial conference.

Kretschmann first emphasized that, apart from minor deviations, the Prime Ministers and Chancellor agreed and they would work together.

When

Lanz asks

him again about

going it alone

,

Kretschmann

reacts

somewhat angrily. "The Prime Minister's Conference has usually stayed together for the most part."

Kretschmann

reacted

blankly

to

the criticism of the premature opening of the primary schools

.

“I don't know why it's being exaggerated.” In addition, one shouldn't pretend that primary schools are the problem with this

pandemic

.

Above all,

Kretschmann

emphasized

that the

risk of infection

in primary schools is low and that the home office in particular

would play

a relevant role in containing the

infection

.

His plan “is only about elementary schools, all others will remain closed”,

Kretschmann

insists

staccato-like.

"You don't have to pretend that villains are at work with every small deviation."

It is personally important for

Kretschmann to

be weighed with the gold scales “with the children, with the little ones”.

"We owe it to them," said

Kretschmann

on

ZDF

.

Kretschman faces difficult election campaigns in Baden Württemberg

The emotional appearance at

Lanz

and the broad media response to his single-handed approach to school opening should come in handy for

Kretschmann

with a view to the upcoming

state elections *

.

The

Kretschmanns

Greens are

currently in

a head-to-head race with their current small coalition partner, the

CDU

.

According to a poll by the polling institute INSA on January 13th, 30% of the votes fall on the

CDU

and the

Greens

.
