In Berlin, the use of masks in trains and buses is still compulsory. The Senate reached the decision to extend the hitherto available Covid-19 regulations to 27th July. Some details show that hospitals are to continue documenting their infection numbers every week. Subsequently, they will skip public holidays and only make reports on working days. According to the Senate, the current condition doesn’t call for panic.
At the moment, the incidence rate of coronavirus in Berlin is 334.1. “Therefore, we’ll have a stress-free summer condition,” explained Franziska Giffey (SPD), the Governing Mayor of Berlin after the Senate sitting. Nevertheless, there is an increasing infection trend.
Berlin remains the epicenter of Monkeypox in Germany
According to Giffey, discussions on sanitary ideas and the timeline for the upcoming autumn are ongoing. Ulrike Gote (Greens), the health Senator is expected to present a proposal to the Senate in the coming week that will serve as a blueprint.
Giffey is also recommending the empowerment of federal states to take action on prevention as soon as the federal contagion protection regulation lapses in September. There are now over 300 monkeypox infection cases in Berlin. “This confers us the status of Germany’s monkeypox epicenter,” Giffey said.
