"This is a disaster," said Lanz.

Markus Lanz argued with Karl Lauterbach about the sense and nonsense of school closings in Germany. The SPD politician praised the measures taken so far and kept an unpleasant message ready for all troubled parents.

"I will stick to it: We would not have had the good results with the comparatively low deaths without the school closings," said epidemiologist and SPD politician Karl Lauterbach as a guest of the ZDF program "Markus Lanz" on Thursday. Previously, moderator Markus Lanz had described the closed schools as "unsustainable conditions", which he no longer understood. He referred to the dispute between "Bild" and the virologist Christian Drosten about his study, which is also controversial in scientific circles, on children's susceptibility to viruses. Countries like Denmark would do it differently, Lanz said. "What we're doing now is a disaster," he said.

HIV - positive people or seropositives are people who have the human immunodeficiency virus HIV , the agent of the currently incurable disease AIDS.

HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system . The virus specifically attacks a subset of T cells. These cells are responsible for fighting infection. When this virus attacks these cells, it reduces the overall number of T cells in the body. This weakens the immune system and can make it easier to

But his guest, who had always given the pessimistic warning in many talk shows over the past few weeks, preferred to point out that the number of cases in Germany was simply too low for meaningful studies. Many parents would not like to hear what he had to say instead: "I would do everything possible to train the students well with thinned-out classes and lots of ventilation and accompanying learning opportunities for at home. I would not, however, rely on us will be able to open full-size schools in the fall. "

Lanz did not want to accept this and referred to a recent study by Heidelberg University with the result: "Yes, we can open the schools again." Lauterbach disagreed: "This is not meaningful. We have very few cases in Germany, which means that most children are simply not contagious." This could change quickly in autumn when there were more people inside, and then many more children could become infected and pass on the virus in the classrooms. Lauterbach's advice: In order to avoid any risk, he would thin out the classrooms after the summer holidays, ventilate them sufficiently and continue to offer part of the lessons digitally in the next half of the year.

German engineer tested positive for virus after return trip to China

 German engineer tested positive for virus after return trip to China Beijing, May 31 (Reuters) - On the first return trip of German managers and employees to China, of all people, one of the travelers tested positive for the virus after the relaxation in the coronavirus epidemic . China announced on Sunday that there were two new infections and four asymptomatic cases of infection. One of these cases, in which the people show no signs of illness, is a German who entered Tianjin on a chartered Lufthansa aircraft.

The human immunodeficiency virus , HIV , is transmitted by bodily fluids transferred during sex. These migrate through the cell and carry the code to ribosomes where it is used to make proteins. This is called translation because the protein's amino acid structure is determined by the mRNA's code.

Der Epidemiologe Karl Lauterbach warnte auch bei © ZDF Epidemiologist Karl Lauterbach also warned "Markus Lanz" on Thursday about a second wave of infections. He said that schools should not go back to normal in the fall. "I do not want to be the lousy Peter with the bad news"

Unsurprisingly, Lauterbach had previously sharply criticized pictures of a happy, humorous mass rally from the Berlin Landwehr Canal, taken on Pentecost weekend. The recorded scenes, according to the SPD politician, gave the impression that the pandemic was over. However, this is "the completely wrong signal" and, moreover, it is "disrespectful to celebrate in front of the hospital, where there are still people who are being ventilated". Lauterbach: "If this continues, the second wave will clearly follow."

The moderator's objection that Lauterbach has often warned of a "second wave", but which has not yet come, is answered by the "Markus Lanz" series guest with new insights: "What we as epidemiologists did not expect is the importance of individuals that are very contagious. " It was a surprise for him and his scientific colleagues that the so-called "superspreaders" explain "such a large part of the pandemic". The effect of these "super spreaders" could be effectively contained by wearing a mask and banning large events. Lauterbach explained that he did not want to be "the lousy Peter" who brought only bad news. And yet there is also a downside: "The bad news is that if I have superspreaders in schools, for example, I have to close a lot at the same time."
