Listen to the news
A second wave of corona virus is spreading in Germany. This time the situation is more serious than March-April. In many German cities, the ICU capacity of hospitals is 90 to 95 percent full. In such a case, the German government will implement a strict lockout in our country so far. The government has asked all residents to buy all the necessary items before timber, just two days before hard timber is introduced in the country.
Chancellor Angela Merkel and the governors of Germany agreed on Sunday to impose a strict lockdown from Wednesday to January 10 to prevent Kovid 19.
All shops, schools and day care will also be closed
Strict lockouts will continue in Germany from December 1 to December 10. This literally means that a big event like Christmas and New Year can pass this time. Germany did not impose a night curfew during the March-April ban, but this time there is talk of a night curfew. In Germany, all shops, schools, etc. will be closed during the lockout and strict adherence to the two yard rule will be ensured.
The country’s finance minister, Peter Alter, said late Sunday night, “I hope people will buy more essentials, such as groceries and essential medicines. We can control the infection as soon as possible. It will be good for us.”
There will be serious economic consequences
The new lockdown will have serious economic consequences. Christmas and New Year’s times are generally considered shopping time. During the Christmas and New Year holidays, a large number of people go on vacation and spend this time with family and friends. Because of the restrictions, only five members of more than two families will be able to celebrate Christmas together.
You will have to isolate yourself for a week
Merkel has appealed that anyone wishing to celebrate Christmas with their family should set themselves apart less than a week in advance.
So far 1,33338,483 in Germany. People have been infected with the corona and more than 22,400 people have died. The rate of corona infection in the second wave of corona is higher than in March-April.
