“The rules are clear: If, as in Coesfeld, a circle exceeds the limit set for the number of infections, we take quick, targeted and consistent action against it,” Laschet told our editorial team. “This agreed emergency mechanism is a central building block on the way to responsible normality,” emphasized the head of the NRW government. There must be no compromises when it comes to protecting people.

Minister of Health Spahn calls the Corona outbreak in Coesfeld “exemplary”

Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU) has meanwhile described it as “exemplary” that the easing measures in Coesfeld are postponed due to the high number of corona infections. “If we want to go the way into the new everyday life with fewer national restrictions, then outbreaks must be acted quickly and consistently on site,” said Spahn to our editorial team. The authorities in NRW and in the district of Coesfeld showed this necessary consequence. “This sets standards, for example,” emphasized Spahn.
