Düsseldorf (SID) - North Rhine-Westphalia's Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) wants a "nationwide" with a view to admitting or banning spectators in the stadiums of the Bundesliga Regulation". The 59-year-old said on Tuesday, one day before the deliberations of Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the prime ministers on further anti-corona measures.
NRW Health Minister Karl-Josef Laumann (CDU) gave an insight into his "personal opinion" in Düsseldorf: The Bundesliga "should play without spectators".
In view of the overall situation in the most populous federal state, Laschet rates the situation as "very, very serious. The measures that have been in place so far are obviously not sufficient to stop this trend."
Laschet therefore spoke out in favor of extensive restrictions on private contacts, which would have to be "drastically reduced" with the help of a "stricter contact ban". The majority of new infections happen "in private life". He rejects a new lockdown with far-reaching restrictions on public life.
