To the sea or to the mountains: Autumn vacation in Corona times

 To the sea or to the mountains: Autumn vacation in Corona times In the middle of the vacation season, there is confusion when dealing with vacationers from German Corona risk areas. Many people are unsure whether and under what conditions their autumn vacation is possible, for example, in popular destinations on the North and Baltic Seas or in Bavaria.

Governments must act now to stop 265 million starving, warns World Food Programme boss.

The federal government is announcing new policies each day, and specifics are changing quickly. These cuts would only help those still getting a paycheck, meaning people who have been or will be laid off because of the coronavirus would not benefit directly.

The patio heaters, which are banned in some cities and municipalities, are now even to be funded by the federal government in the corona crisis. “Even in the autumn and winter months, functioning outdoor catering is part of the solution,” said the Federal Government's SME Commissioner, Thomas Bareiß (CDU), to the “Handelsblatt”.

“That is why we not only want to enable patio heaters, but the acquisition is even financially supported in the ongoing bridging aid II.” This is intended to help the “badly battered” gastronomy in this difficult time.

In view of the escalation of the corona situation , Chancellor Angela Merkel and the heads of government of the 16 federal states want to try to curb the spread of the virus with a mix of tightening and more understandable rules.

The federal government is racing to ease the pain facing the U.S. economy as the coronavirus pandemic makes its swift pivot from public health crisis The Fed's first dramatic action, reminiscent of the 2008 financial crisis , came on a Sunday evening: The central bank cut rates to nearly zero and

Government ’s relative success in overcoming the pandemic and its economic effects will exacerbate or diminish security issues and the recent polarization within societies. In the United States, what is most at stake is the ability of the federal government to provide effective measures to stem the crisis .

Extension of the bridging aid

According to the latest plans of the Federal Ministry of Economics, the bridging aid for companies that will run until the end of the year is to be extended by six months to June 30, 2021. The ministry said on Saturday that outdoor catering in the winter months could be a way to keep operations going despite the increasing number of infections.

“That is why, with Bridging Aid II, we will in future also be promoting measures for the temporary relocation of business operations to the outside areas. This means that the purchase of outer tents, radiant heaters, etc. can be subsidized in the future. ”According to previous experience, the risk of contracting the coronavirus is significantly greater indoors than outdoors. This is why many guests prefer to sit outside under patio heaters than in the living room. Gas-powered patio heaters and electric heaters, however, consume additional energy.

The Greens are also calling for the ban on patio heaters to be suspended. "I'm not a fan of patio heaters, but in times of pandemics you shouldn't be more papal than the Pope," said the Green economic politician Dieter Janecek of the "Handelsblatt". "If the number of infections increases this autumn and winter, pubs, restaurants and cultural institutions are threatened with a massive wave of bankruptcies, so we should help very pragmatically."
