To survive, she sells the chocolate cakes bought by her father. In this miserable village, where some 15,000 Ethiopian refugees are crowded near the border, she approaches the people by asking them timidly: "Do you want to taste one?".

Ensure that sick leave policies are flexible and consistent with public health guidance and that employees are aware of and understand these policies. Improve central air filtration to the MERV-13 or the highest compatible with the filter rack, and seal edges of the filter to limit bypass.

Even during the lockdown in spring, the postmen were among the people who had kept the country running. Despite exit restrictions, they delivered letters and parcels every day.

In view of the increasing number of infections in Germany, Deutsche Post is continuing to arm itself against the corona risk - and, according to Business Insider's research, is taking unusual paths: According to this, a kind of hygiene police will in future ensure compliance with the corona rules. This emerges from an internal mail to executives that Business Insider has received.

It literally says: "In addition, we use health protection security to regularly check compliance with distance and hygiene rules". On request, a Swiss Post spokesman explains the tasks: "This includes, for example, keeping your distance at critical points such as canteens, break rooms or turnstiles as well as the correct wearing of mouth and nose protection."

There should be a minimum fine of 50 euros for violations of the mask requirement. The federal and state governments have agreed on a series of tightenings in view of the increasing number of corona infections.

Those in violation face the threat of a €206 (£179; 5) fine for breaking the rules or even three months in prison. On Monday, French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said 100,000 police officers were being deployed to enforce stringent new measures to limit social contact.

It added that President Cyril Ramaphosa and his deputy, David Mabuza, had been "working remotely and not from the Union Buildings since the start of the lockdown", suggesting they weren't in contact with the employee. "In line with government’s guidelines on the management of Covid-19 cases

"Looks with great concern at the current development"

The background to the introduction of the Corona watchdog is that, in view of the increasing number of infections across Germany, the Post also worries about illnesses of employees. "However, I am currently looking at the current development of the corona infection in Germany and Europe with great concern. Although the situation in our company has stabilized this week, we are still at a significantly higher level than in August or at the beginning September ", writes the head of production of the letter and parcel division Thomas Schneider in the mail.

Specifically, the shifts would be divided into fixed groups, "those who come, work, take a break and leave". In addition, the company is planning "the installation of HEPA filters in the parcel centers as well as the use of so-called CO2 detectors. This will enable us to measure the air quality and, if necessary, ensure better ventilation in the short term."

In another mail it is stated that in addition to event-related PCR tests, antigen tests should also be carried out. A total of 20,000 of these sets are to be procured by the company doctors and "which can be used on site and enable a test result within 15 minutes via an analysis set".

Larger sources of infection would have a significant impact on operations.

The intensive precautions against possible corona infections among employees are also necessary because Deutsche Post is expecting a significant increase in letter and parcel volumes in the next few weeks. From November to Christmas is traditionally the most labor-intensive time for the group, for which hundreds of extra employees are hired every day and week.

In addition, the work processes in the distribution centers, which used to be largely separated into letters and parcels, are now much more closely interlinked. Small-format parcels are now also processed in the letter centers. "In total, we will process over 900,000 parcels a day in the mail centers. That corresponds to a share of 20 percent - based on the average daily amount of parcels outside of heavy traffic," according to an internal forecast. If employees were suddenly absent due to corona, this would have a significant impact on postal operations in all areas.
