Rush to clubs after corona loosening

After two years of Corona and the ban on many entertainments, many people rushed to clubs and discotheques at the weekend. Sometimes the police and rescue workers had to move out.

Berlin/Oberndorf – With the end of the corona-related ban on dancing, many people stormed into clubs and discos on the first weekend. In Berlin, a large crowd in front of a club triggered a police operation.

Lockerungen für Clubs

Several people suffered panic attacks, a man fainted and a woman was taken to the hospital, police said on Saturday. In Austria, too, the end of almost all corona restrictions led to tumultuous scenes in front of a dance hall in Oberndorf near Salzburg, according to the police there. The restaurant was therefore also visited by many people from neighboring Bavaria.

Long queues and crowds

According to the police, around 1,500 to 2,000 people crowded in front of a club in Berlin on Friday evening. The police arrived with around 70 emergency services and cleared the yard in front of the club. Clubs and discotheques have been allowed to open their dance floors again since Friday. Those who have recovered and those who have been vaccinated must also be tested if they want to go on the dance floor.

According to the police, a few hundred night owls gathered in Oberndorf, Austria, hours before midnight – and thus before the relaxation of restrictions came into effect on Saturday – in front of the dance hall near Salzburg. Some visitors lost consciousness in the crowd, the police reported. Ten police officers had to intervene and let the club open early to defuse the situation. One injured person had to be treated by the Red Cross. In the end, only half of those waiting were able to go to the discotheque. Night gastronomy had been closed in Austria for two years due to the corona. dpa
