The medical officers in Germany are pressing for uniform and mandatory regulations on contact restrictions in the corona crisis.

“I would like to see quick and uniform decisions on the contact restrictions. If appeals are not enough, then there must be uniform, mandatory regulations to reduce contact: We are running out of time, "said the head of the association for doctors in the public health service, Ute Teichert, of the" Rheinische Post "(Tuesday edition).

The infected numbers are still "significantly too high", and the health authorities are not keeping up. “There has not yet been a comprehensive increase in the number of specialist staff there,” criticized Teichert. The doctor also considers uniform rules “such as a general mask requirement” to be sensible for schools. “The many different concepts make people feel insecure,” she said.
