US News DOSB appeals to politicians: "Team Germany must remain active"
A new simulator is supposed to predict how many corona cases there will be in all federal states - and how difficult they will be
The number of infections with the coronavirus in Germany has been increasing for a few weeks. Several areas already exceed the risk value. How will it go on? How many cases do we have to expect by the end of the year? A research team from Saarbrücken has now developed an online simulator , which is supposed to predict exactly that. On the basis of various data, the researchers developed a mathematical model that can be used to create detailed forecasts for each federal state.
The German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) has appealed to politicians to allow top German athletes to continue training and competitions despite the announced lockdown. "We call on the responsible federal states to ensure in their ordinances that training and competition are guaranteed for the German Olympic squad, prospective squad and junior squad 1 and 2 using the existing good hygiene concepts," said DOSB competitive sports director Dirk Schimmelpfennig.
He also emphasized: "This also applies to the 1st to 3rd leagues in all Olympic and non-Olympic sports, the fourth league in men's football and national and international sporting events at which professional athletes participate. "
It is currently unclear to what extent the tightened corona measures announced for November affect the Olympic squad. These are not explicitly mentioned in the federal-state resolution of Wednesday.
The athletes from Team Germany "have to stay on course", said Schimmelpfennig. "As in the professional leagues, which are allowed to continue training and have their competitions held without spectators, an interruption in long-term performance is counterproductive and endangers our athletes' chances for the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2021 and Beijing 2022," he added.
