1:25 a.m.: Hamburg's First Mayor Peter Tschentscher spoke out in favor of Bundesliga games with fans in the stadiums before the state health ministers' meeting on Monday. The SPD politician says "Bild": "Why shouldn't it be possible to open a football stadium with a few thousand spectators?" It must be about proportionality. "What is possible in view of risk protection should be done." In Hamburg it is already possible to watch concerts with up to 750 people live in the Elbphilarmonie.

Possible obligation to notify before planned trips to corona risk areas

00.55 a.m.: Interior Secretary G√ľnter Krings has proposed the introduction of an obligation to notify before planned trips to corona risk areas. "When traveling to risk areas, we should think about whether we introduce a prior notification requirement," said the CDU politician of the "Rheinische Post" (Monday). "Anyone who wants to travel to a risk area should report this to the health department beforehand so that it can be more easily checked afterwards whether the mandatory corona test was carried out upon entry and whether the quarantine was complied with."

There are currently two options for returnees from risk areas: Either they can be tested in the holiday country a maximum of 48 hours before departure and submit negative evidence in German or English. Or they can be tested after their return in Germany, which is possible for up to three days free of charge, for example at the family doctor.

The UK may only publish case numbers on a weekly basis

00.55 a.m.: According to a newspaper, Great Britain may stop the daily publication of the corona death numbers. An investigation ordered by Minister of Health Matt Hancock could make a corresponding recommendation in the course of the week, reports the Telegraph, citing government circles.

The background is the discovery that the authorities in England "exaggerated" the number of deaths. Perhaps the statistics should be published weekly instead.
