WUHAN, China — The Chinese authorities resorted to increasingly extreme measures in Wuhan on Thursday to try to halt the spread of the deadly coronavirus, ordering house-to-house searches, rounding up the sick and warehousing them in enormous quarantine centers.

You will recall that the Bat Corona Virus was 100% lethal, and that in order to cover-up that up, the government designated ALL variants of Corona Virus to be the same infection. By swelling up the number of “infected” they were mathematically bringing down the relative mortality rate.

His Saxon counterpart Michael Kretschmer (CDU) calls for voluntariness instead of coercion in the newspaper: "I rely on the personal responsibility of the people who are and have to be more disciplined in the autumn."

Perception of risk increases - nevertheless people are becoming more careless

The majority of the citizens are against tightening the corona rules. According to a survey by the Kantar opinion research institute for "Bild am Sonntag", 57 percent of those questioned want to keep the measures in their current form, eight percent are in favor of easing them, 33 percent for tightening them.

In a cross-border survey by the Hamburg Center for Health Economics (HCHE), the majority of the 7,000 respondents in Germany considered the risk of Covid 19 disease to be high or even very high. Their share increased again between June and September. However, compliance with the Corona measures apparently shows signs of fatigue.

Deviating from the minimum distance is permissible if a general hygiene policy of the relevant Senate Department allows it as an exception and other measures are in place to protect against infection. In addition, the Berlin Senate strongly recommends that the mouth and nose be covered in some way.

Some of those measures included building hospitals in days, rapid testing protocols, and technology that attempted to trace all 80,000-plus virus cases. Experts told Business Insider that some methods, like creating makeshift hospitals, might work for America, but others

In April, according to their own statements, almost every second person made sure to wash their hands for 20 seconds. By September the number had decreased.

Will there be a nationwide uniform border for celebrations?

Because of the increasing number of infections in Germany, doctors and districts had demanded nationwide uniform limits for private parties . From 50 participants in a private celebration, it would be "logistically extremely difficult to trace the contacts if a Covid-positive was among the company," said district council president Reinhard Sager (CDU). He calls for an upper limit below 50 participants.

In a SPIEGEL survey , the majority of Germans also spoke out in favor of a nationwide uniform upper limit. Whether the Prime Ministers Haseloff and Kretschmer will agree to this remains questionable after their current announcement.

In Saxony-Anhalt, up to 50 people are currently allowed to come together for private parties. If celebrations such as weddings, funerals or club meetings are organized professionally, up to 500 people can celebrate in closed rooms. From November 1000 participants should be allowed.

In Saxony, up to 100 people can take part in family celebrations in restaurants or rented rooms. For company or club celebrations, there is an upper limit of 50 people.
