Corona hotspot flensburg: lauterbach in favor of strict lockdown

Flensburg pulls the ripcord: Starting Saturday, curfew restrictions and a ban on contact will initially apply in the city for a week between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. SPD health expert Karl Lauterbach now called for even tougher measures on Twitter: "Flensburg is the first example of what we could be threatened with further spread of UK B117," he wrote there. The only thing that could prevent this is a strict lockdown until a target incidence of 35 is reached. "Then fewer clusters form, control possible."

Because of high Corona infection figures and the spread of the British variant of the virus, members of a household are also not allowed to meet other people, outside or inside, as of Saturday.

Flensburg: Karl Lauterbach demands strict lockdown

During nighttime curfews, the state government says people may only leave their house or apartment "for valid reasons," such as going to work. Failure to comply with the new regulation will result in fines.

At the same time, measures already in force are extended by the city of Flensburg to the entire area of the Schleswig-Flensburg district. These include, for example, the rule that only one person is allowed to go shopping alone, and the obligation to wear masks on playgrounds.

Throughout the district, unlike in the rest of the state, the schools will not be marked on 22. February open again. In the Kitas it also remains with emergency care.

Corona outbreaks with mutations – daycare center in quarantine

Flensburg Mayor Simone Lange (SPD) said the current situation in the city is "worrying". With the "constantly high incidence number and a share of mutations in the infections of well over 33 percent, courageous action is required".

The seven-day incidence in the city was recently 181.9, well above the national average; only six German counties or county-free cities currently have a higher incidence value.

In the Schleswig-Flensburg district, the figure was 84.5. The cause of the trend is thought to be the spread of variant B, which was discovered in the U.K.1.1.7 suspected.

Meanwhile, two Corona outbreaks were reported in Dusseldorf on Wednesday. According to the city, two children and five employees tested positive in a daycare center – in two cases it was the Corona variant B, which was first detected in Great Britain.1.1.7. The entire daycare center was therefore placed under quarantine.

In a nursing home, 27 residents and 15 employees also tested positive; however, in this case, no mutants were detected, according to city officials. It is now being investigated "how the virus was able to spread despite high infection control measures".
