A few minutes


Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) stepped in front of the cameras and microphones in Munich.

Before that, he consulted with the CSU leadership on the question: Who will be the CDU / CSU's candidate for chancellor?

In the almost half-hour press conference with the focus on the power struggle in the two sister parties of the Union, there was also a short episode on the current Corona policy.

Söder said, “In addition to the K question, there is also the C question”.

Here the CSU boss once again used the stage to make a name for himself on this question of who the better corona fighter is.

It takes an experienced politician, but also a man with lots of ideas, to cope with the pandemic.

He was such a man himself, he affirmed again, and indirectly gave his competitor Armin Laschet (CDU) a swipe.

He also defended the plan to introduce a nationwide corona emergency brake.

He - and thus also Bavaria - will support and implement the decision that the Bundestag and Council will make this week.

Corona virus in Bavaria: Holetschek supports the curfew

Update from April 19, 10.11 a.m.:

While the Bundestag is voting on the Corona emergency brake in Berlin this week, Bavaria's Health Minister Klaus Holetschek (CSU) has commented on a central point from that catalog of rules.

In an interview with the ZDF morning magazine on Monday, he spoke out in favor of a curfew.

It was "proportionate to not be able to go out on the streets for a few weeks in the evening and to participate," said the minister.

Occupancy in the clinics will peak in two to three weeks.

"Now is the time to act."

Corona numbers in Bavaria remain at a high level

Update from April 19, 8:34 a.m.:

Bavaria is now in third place in the Germany-wide incidence comparison. The RKI reported a value of 187.3 for the Free State on Monday

(as of April 19, 3.09 a.m.)

. In contrast, the value for the entire Federal Republic is only 165.3. The RKI also reports 2151 new corona cases in Bavaria. However, the number of new infections reported is lower on Monday than in the middle of the week, as fewer tests are carried out on the weekend.

There are now only two rural districts in the Free State that fall below the incidence limit of 100. At the lower end of the incidence list is the former front runner in Germany, the Tirschenreuth district (68). Then comes the Forchheim district with 94.7. The top runner is the district of Dingolfing-Landau with a value of 349.6 cases in the past seven days. Just behind the district of Kronach with 349.1 cases. The incidence in the state capital Munich has fallen a little again. On Monday it was 161.3 (previous day: 163.9). 13 people have died in connection with Covid-19 disease in the past 24 hours.

Update from April 18, 6:38 p.m.:

The city of Munich can still not give the European Football Union any guarantee that the four European Championship games will be held in front of spectators this summer.

"At this point in time, it is simply not possible to make a statement about whether the infection process in June will allow spectators to enter the stadium or not," said Munich mayor Dieter Reiter of the

world on Sunday.

Corona in Bavaria: Munich continues without a guarantee for EM - "simply not possible"

The UEFA Executive Committee will decide during a meeting this Monday (from 10 a.m.) whether Munich can still co-host the tournament (11 June to 11 July).

According to the current Infection Protection Ordinance, events of this type with spectators are not allowed.

"We hope, however, that the pandemic situation will ease up by June and that we will be able to release at least a certain percentage of the seats in the Allianz Arena for spectators, including additional hygiene measures and possible test strategies, as the UEFA strives for," said Reiter.

Corona in Bavaria: Incidence in Munich is falling slightly

Update from April 18, 2:08 p.m.:

The city of Munich has published the current corona numbers.

1,148 people died in connection with the coronavirus.

Update from April 18, 1:29 p.m.:

The new regulations for opening retail stores in Bavaria do not meet with approval everywhere.

The fact that customers now have to show a negative corona test is preventing many from shopping, fear the retailers.

Therefore, some do not even open their shops despite permission.

Meanwhile, researchers from the University of Regensburg are reporting initial successes in their efforts to develop a drug against Covid-19 disease.

But Professor Gernot Längst, who is helping to advance the research, explains why it is still too early to be euphoric.

Corona in Bavaria: Stiko boss makes it clear - vaccinations cannot break the third wave

Update from April 17, 3:15 p.m.:

Bavaria's strategy for corona vaccinations is known: In order to increase the vaccination rate, the prioritization should be lifted. This is also what the general practitioners demand. However, there is now headwind to this decision from the head of the Standing Vaccination Commission (Stiko), Thomas Mertens.

The doctor urgently warns against this step. “This discussion is really of no use now. We must continue to protect people at high risk of severe Covid-19 disease such as those who have previously been ill with limited vaccine quantities. We use it to protect our intensive care units, ”Mertens told

RP Online

. According to the Stiko boss, the corona vaccinations are not enough to break the third wave. Mertens: “That is also shown by model calculations. That would have meant having a lot more vaccine much earlier. "

Update from April 17, 12.55 p.m.:

In Munich, the seven-day incidence makes another leap again.

According to the city, this value is 165.7 on Saturday.

- The negative corona development trend in the Free State continues: The numbers are increasing.

On Friday only the three districts of Miltenberg, Tirschenreuth, Lindau and the city of Bamberg were below the important limit value of 100. The city of Hof continues to be the unwanted leader in Bavaria with 386.3.

This is not without consequences: The Free State is heading for a tougher lockdown in schools and retail in the next few weeks.

Corona in Bavaria: The majority of students are taking distance lessons again - only for 30 percent face-to-face or alternating lessons

In plain language, this means: If the incidence is more than 100 on Friday, schools have to largely switch to distance teaching in the following week. According to the Ministry of Culture, this will affect 70 percent of the million students in Bavaria in the coming week. As a result, only around 30 percent could stay in classroom and alternate classes, confirmed a ministry spokesman. The only exceptions are the final grades, the fourth grades of primary schools and the 11th grades of grammar school.

The state capital Munich had already announced a corresponding regulation on Friday morning.

Here the incidence rises to 165.7 on Saturday.

Regardless of the ongoing discussion about school openings up to an incidence of 200 at the federal level, the 100 limit currently applies in Bavaria.

From this value, the emergency brake is pulled in schools.

In the affected regions in the Free State, the following rules initially apply from Monday, April 19 to Friday, April 25: Day-care centers, day-care centers and organized play groups only offer emergency care.

Distance learning takes place in all schools.

As an alternative, the children can take a self-test * at school under supervision. The test obligation * applies at least twice a week. "In order to effectively break the third wave with dominant mutations, the closings of schools and day-care centers are unfortunately essential," explains Munich's third mayor Verena Dietl (SPD) of the 



The retail sector will also have to adjust to the tightening again.

On Friday, a total of 23 districts in the Free State met the retail conditions for a complete closure in the next week, with the exception of the "Click and Collect" procedure.

This applies from a seven-day incidence over 200 for at least three days at a time.

On Friday, three districts - Starnberg, Miltenberg and Tirschenreuth met the conditions for opening the retail trade with an appointment ("Click and Meet").
