Corona infections among politicians: as positive as Donald Trump

 Corona infections among politicians: as positive as Donald Trump Donald Trump has contracted the corona virus - he is not the first politician: the disease led to a change of political heart for some, while others reacted with a show. © Alan Santos / dpa Donald Trump has been infected with Corona. 32 days before the US election, this topic will determine the international news. But the US president is by no means the first powerful politician whose illness makes headlines.

Beyond the individual level we can join forces to achieve even more. Cooperation is the strength of our species and our most promising strategy to make progress against the pandemic is the global collaboration in science, technology, and political organization.

After the National Cabinet announced a three-step plan on May 8 to relax COVID-19 restrictions, States and Territories eased regional containment measures. A regional COVID-19 resurgence triggered a renewed lockdown in metropolitan Melbourne from July 9. This was further tightened

According to a survey, having one's own car is likely to remain a preferred mode of transport for many people even after the Corona crisis - bus, train and sharing services, on the other hand, have a hard time.

The consulting firm PwC Strategy & determined in a survey of around 2,600 consumers in Germany, the USA and China that following the pandemic restrictions, individual mobility on the daily commute to work will become more important. For example, 31 percent of the participants in Germany stated that they wanted to use their car more often than before. For 45 percent nothing changes, while 24 percent want to use the car less often.

 criticism from the Federal Audit Office: is the railway getting too much money for coping with corona? The damage estimate was made in May - and, according to the auditors, is long out of date. Aid should only be paid out gradually. © imago images / Sven Simon The train should get back on track. Just not with too much tax money, demands the Federal Audit Office. Deutsche Bahn AG is to receive five billion euros in tax money this year as compensation for Corona losses .

In several surveys the domestic industry says it’s planning for a recovery of 70 percent over the next six months, according to Dr. Wolfgang George Arlt, director of the China Outbound Tourism Research Institute . But that recovery largely rests on domestic tourism

Most Popular . In a survey conducted by Nihon Keizai Shimbun on nearly 140 leading firms in Japan , about 50% of businesses say they have switched to teleworking partially or in principle. Can Japan prepare for the post- corona era? That is the important question each individual should think about

Bicycles (33 percent) and walking (32 percent) are also mentioned more frequently as options for the time after Corona in Germany. At the same time, however, many respondents announce that they are less used than a car. The losers are local public transport (minus 64 percent), taxi and driving services such as Uber (-76 percent), car sharing (-77 percent) and other sharing services (-79 percent).

The US and China show similar patterns. There, the more frequent use of the car in the future, at plus 67 or plus 60 percent, is even more pronounced than in Germany. However, Chinese consumers are also seeing greater opportunities for sharing services.

PwC industry expert Christoph Stürmer explained: "It is too early to say that everything will change due to Corona." But the effects of the pandemic on mobility behavior have "not gone unnoticed". One reason to avoid public transport is to worry about getting infected with the Covid-19 pathogen. More than half of the respondents in Germany (58 percent) stated that they were generally open to use; Regular cleaning and disinfection or lower fares are a prerequisite.

traffic light should slow down Europe's Corona patchwork quilt

 traffic light should slow down Europe's Corona patchwork quilt The EU states want - in principle - a Europe-wide traffic light system to mark Corona travel restrictions. But before it can be realized, many (political) traffic lights have to switch from red to green. © picture alliance / dpa / J.Büttner Provided by Deutsche Welle After weeks of negotiations, the EU member states have agreed on initial guidelines against the European patchwork of corona travel restrictions.

In another survey , one in four said someone in their family had skipped a doctor-recommended test they could not afford, and one in six said that someone in their family had skipped prescribed medication. Health experts fear that these costs will accelerate outbreaks, particularly as stories

Our randomized treatment shows pessimistic information about mobility and increases support for redistribution, mostly for “equality of opportunity” policies. We nd a strong political polarization. Left-wing respondents are more pessimistic about mobility , their preferences for redistribution are correlated

In China and the USA, in principle, more people are willing to switch to public transport under such conditions. Environmentalists point out that the setbacks for local transport due to the virus crisis are likely to lead to higher CO2 emissions.

In Germany, 21 percent of those surveyed want to buy a new car, in the USA 44 and in China 76 percent. When it comes to the interest in new subscription models, China is clearly ahead (65 percent), only 8 percent of Germans consider something like that.

The consultants also checked the customers' perception of central technology trends such as e-mobility, networking and autonomous driving. Only in China - especially among younger people - are electric or hybrid motors the most popular type of drive, in Germany and even more so in the USA, however, gasoline or diesel engines continue to be.

More Internet in the car is in demand everywhere, also because of the push for digitization during the crisis. But so far consumers have not wanted to spend much money on it. When it comes to autonomous driving, Chinese customers are more open than Germans and Americans - but the latter show interest if the risk-associated technology is limited to low speeds. Overall, the development of technology is slower than many car manufacturers assumed.
