The chief executive of the association of cities and municipalities, Gerd Landsberg, has defended the federal and state governments against criticism of the few decisions of the conference of prime ministers.

"It is correct that the Chancellor and the Prime Ministers have not yet made a decision on whether the lockdown light must continue beyond the end of November," said Landsberg to the "editorial network Germany". It must be seen how the infection process develops in the next few days and whether the number of new infections can be reduced.

He welcomed the "highly recommended additional contact restrictions" as "correct". In this way, everyone could help prevent the extremely stressed health and regulatory authorities from being an additional burden. "Everything must be done to avoid overburdening the hospitals and intensive care units, as we see them in other European countries." With a view to protests against Corona measures, he said: "So-called 'lateral thinkers' and other groups are one a tiny minority whose media perception is out of proportion to their importance. "
