There is a judge a Berlin. One of those who don’t like tightness too much anti-Covid. The administrative court of the German capital upheld the appeal of a dozen restaurants who rebelled against the decision to close at 11pm. Disproportionate measure according to the court, given that the boys could still gather outside in places that do not respect the rules. rules of hygiene.
The German Health Minister regrets the decision, Jens Spahn. In large cities at night, alcohol consumption affects social behavior, both in private and in public – says the minister – and this is an engine of the infectious process. Therefore, large cities must be able to react, in the case of a high incidence of infections, because “if we want to keep schools and kindergartens running normally, as well as the economy, we must be able to introduce containment measures in other areas” concludes Spahn .
Seven Berlin neighborhoods have exceeded the threshold of 50 new infections per 100 thousand inhabitants.
