  • This news ticker is updated regularly.

Update from February 14, 7.44 a.m .: The seven-day incidence* in Bavaria has fallen again – although the validity of the data is currently limited. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI*) gave the value on Monday morning as 1772.0 (as of 3:19 a.m.). The previous day the value was 1798.3. It is difficult to judge whether this really means a turnaround in the infection process. It could also be that the decline in incidence does not reflect the actual occurrence of infection, but is the result of an overloaded reporting and testing system.

The number of newly infected people as of Monday stood at 17,457, adding 3 deaths linked to the virus. The seven-day incidences were highest in the districts of Eichstätt (3539.1), Straubing-Bogen (2858.1) and Regen (2705.9). Six cities and counties were below an incidence of 1000.

The number of corona patients in the intensive care units has increased slightly in the past few days: the Divi intensive care register reported 351 corona patients in intensive care units in the Free State on Monday (as of 6:05 a.m.), a week earlier there were 328. 163 of them had to be invasive be ventilated.

End of contact restrictions? Söder calls for a gradual exit strategy – CSU boss with clear demands

First report from February 14, 6:36 a.m .: Munich – is the Omicron summit soon over, can the Corona * rules actually be relaxed now? On Wednesday, the federal and state governments will again discuss the current situation in the pandemic. Markus Söder has clear ideas about how to proceed – and clear demands on the traffic light.

Federal-state round on Corona on Wednesday: Söder calls for “entry into the exit”

Bavaria’s Prime Minister is calling for a gradual exit strategy from the corona restrictions before the federal-state meeting on Wednesday. “If the omicron peak is reached and the health system is still intact, it is necessary to start exiting,” said Söder of the German Press Agency in Munich. He had already made a similar statement at a press conference exactly a week ago.

The CSU boss advocated a phased plan to gradually reduce the corona rules. At the same time, he called for a longer-term legal basis for protective measures such as the obligation to wear masks and distance rules, as well as an emergency strategy for possible new waves.

“Decisions cannot be postponed on Wednesday. Now the time has come to set the course – not in a hurry, but gradually,” said Söder. The traffic light must now disclose its plans.

Corona measures: Söder calls for a phased plan

“A step-by-step plan is required for the exit,” emphasized Söder. “First of all, 2G can be abolished nationwide in retail and switched from 2G plus to 2G in gastronomy. In addition, more spectators should be allowed nationwide: 50 percent in sport with a limited maximum number and 75 percent in culture. ”In Bavaria, Söder had recently relaxed the corona rules accordingly.

End of the Corona contact restrictions? Söder has a clear opinion

He also called for an end to the contact restrictions – so far, a maximum of ten people have been allowed to come together privately, provided that everyone has been vaccinated or recovered. As soon as an unvaccinated person is present, only a household with two other people is allowed to meet. “The contact restrictions in the private sector can now also be lifted,” emphasized Söder.

Then a schedule is needed “how and when to switch from 2G to 3G”. Söder, on the other hand, does not see the opening of clubs and discos as a first step. “The areas that can be opened last are certainly clubs and discos with 2G plus,” he explained.

Basically, Söder called for a revision of the entire Corona regulations. “Unfortunately, Germany has become entangled in a jungle of different regulations. We therefore need fewer rules and instead need clear and understandable principles.”

But now: Söder wants to implement compulsory vaccination earlier

Söder calls for exit strategy and emergency plan: “Adjournment does not apply this time”

In his opinion, the federal government is the first to have a duty: it must now make a clear statement on how things should continue in March – there is a heated debate about this within the traffic light. However, the federal government needs to have a unified position before the federal-state meeting.

In fact, according to the will of the FDP, the legal basis for the corona protection measures, which is limited to March 19, should be completely eliminated. Should this happen, “at least protective measures such as masks and distance are needed,” said Söder. “But there needs to be a legal basis for this. All of this needs to be decided and planned now. In addition, an emergency strategy against possible new waves and mutations is required. Adjournment does not apply this time.” (kam/dpa)* is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
