The effect of the previous measures which will be analysed relentlessly, announced in Seibert. At the same time, it is important to maintain the proportionality. “We act as a democracy,” he said. “This is true now, and will continue to apply.” To the question of a state of emergency Seibert said: “The term is not liked, and the reasons for it.”

The spokesman of the Federal interior Ministry, Steve old, said it would be irresponsible” to speculate now about which of the possible measures could be made in two or three days. All orders must comply with the principle of proportionality.

World medical President Frank Ulrich Montgomery, criticized the inconsistent approach of the Federal States in the fight against the spread of the Coronavirus. “Actually, the policy of the Federal government in the hands of Jens Spahn six weeks is excellent, but in the meantime, the Minister presidents of the länder into a competition-aggravating measures kicked in,” said Montgomery of the “Augsburger Allgemeine” (Saturday). The Berlin-based virologist Christian Drosten said in the debate about curfews to a lack of data. It is relatively hard to say whether an additional measure, such as a curfew a difference.
