1 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – Germany is on top of the class in its response to pandemic
1 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – In sharp contrast to Belgium’s relaxation of the measures to contain the pandemic, that become effective today, all of our neighbouring countries have introduced (or are planning on introducing) stricter measures to halt the rising figures of coronavirus infections and hospitalisations. Understand who can… One of the most important measures that the Netherlands took is that bars and restaurants are no longer allowed to let clients in from 9:00 PM, and have to be empty by 10:00 PM.In France, more than 10,000 new confirmed cases per day were reported last week, with a peak of almost 16,000 cases on Friday. France then called an enhanced alert for almost all of its major cities, meaning a closing hour of 10:00 PM for pubs and restaurants, and a total closure of festivity halls. In Germany, the government called the evolution of the pandemic very worrying and urged everyone to continue to follow the rules on face masks, quarantine and basic hygiene. Germany recorded an incidence rate of 14 confirmed infections per 100,000 inhabitants, the lowest of all of our neighboring countries. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Germany has always been seen on top of the class in its response framework to the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak. They are exceling in prevention, detection, containment and treatment. The picture on display today is taken on Trier’s central market square yesterday. Besides the fact that face masks were mandatory at the hotel life felt surprisingly normal… Hauptmarkt, Trier, Germany.
