Munich. Söder wants to enable corona tests for everyone who wants to. The criticism from other countries and from Health Minister Spahn does not challenge him. Because he had already experienced initial rejection with other measures, which later turned into approval.

Despite the massive criticism from the federal government and other countries, the Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder sees his country as a role model for all of Germany in the voluntary corona tests for everyone. "I think it has an impact far beyond Bavaria," said the CSU chief of the "Augsburger Allgemeine". The criticism of the Bavarian approach is not medically justified. "The actual background is something completely different: these are the costs."

Beijing - Up to one million corona tests possible daily

 Beijing - Up to one million corona tests possible daily Beijing, Jun 21 (Reuters) - After the recent Corona outbreak, Beijing has significantly increased its test capacities. The Chinese capital with its 20 million inhabitants can now carry out almost a million corona tests daily, as the Health Commission said on Sunday. Since the recent outbreak, capacity has more than doubled to over 230,000 tests a day in 124 facilities, commission spokesman Gao Xiaojun said at a press conference.

States can offer so-called extended benefits in times of high unemployment, and each state has its own formula. The number of weeks offered by each state varies, but it’s usually half the length of the standard benefit. Other materials tested included layered coffee filters and scarves and bandannas.

Driving tests in Northern Ireland will be suspended for three months as part of the effort to slow the spread of coronavirus. Driving examiners are in close proximity to members of the public, in a confined space, for up to 40 minutes on each driving test .

In the future, all people in Bavaria should be allowed to have the corona virus tested free of charge, even without symptoms. The cabinet of the Free State wants to decide on the corresponding test concept this Tuesday. Basically, the plan is based on an agreement with Bavaria that comes into force on Wednesday with the statutory health insurance association. This provides testing options for private practice doctors. Söder told “Tagesspiegel” that Bavaria wanted to “offer up to 30,000 tests a day”. The Free State has tripled its capacity since the end of March.

In addition to the tests for people with and without symptoms - tests are already free for both of them - the concept also provides for voluntary tests in institutions with vulnerable people, for example in nursing homes and old people's homes as well as expanding in hospitals. The same applies to tests by teachers and educators. Anyone who has symptoms should be tested within a day and have their result 24 hours later. Without symptoms, it takes a little longer: a test in 48 hours and a result in a week.

Both Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU) and other federal states had massively criticized Bavaria's announcement of large-scale tests and warned of a deceptive feeling of security. Söder had rejected this.

The Bavarian Prime Minister told the "Augsburger Allgemeine" that he had also been attacked "when we were talking about school closings". After that everyone did it. At the beginning there was also criticism of the Bavarian exit restrictions, shortly afterwards each federal state imposed contact bans. Likewise, all federal states of Bavaria have now followed the restrictions for vacationers from Corona risk areas.

On the other hand, medical president Klaus Reinhardt advised against corona tests for everyone. "Mass tests for everyone would certainly provide interesting scientific knowledge, but as long as the capacities are limited, I think quick and targeted tests of clearly defined population groups make more sense," he told the Rheinische Post (Tuesday). "We need the test capacities so that sufficient tests are available for suspected cases, risk groups and clinic patients and above all a quick test evaluation is possible."

The effectiveness of this measure is currently hotly debated. Hamburg and Saxony-Anhalt have already announced according to "zdf.de" not to follow the example. Other federal states such as North Rhine-Westphalia, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania or Berlin broadly support the Bavarian strategy.

Germany's coronavirus testing was as high as France and Spain combined, and significantly higher than Sweden's testing rate. As of June 25, 2020, Russia had conducted the highest number of coronavirus (COVID-19) tests in Europe at approximately 17.5 million. Other statistics on the topic.

All 50 states have begun to reopen in at least some way, more than two months after the coronavirus thrust the country into lockdown. But there remain vast discrepancies in how states are deciding to open up, with some forging far ahead of others .

The head of the General Practitioners Association, Ulrich Weigeldt, called for a national strategy for the criteria of corona tests. "There is currently a lot of uncertainty in many general practices, both general practitioners and their patients, due to the regional patchwork of constantly changing, sometimes half-finished regulations," Weigeldt told the Rheinische Post (Tuesday). "Even if the rush of many decisions is understandable, a well-thought-out national strategy, which at the same time considers the advantages and risks of testing in the individual situation, would make sense."

Meanwhile, the head of "business practices", Lars P. Feld, expressed skepticism on the effectiveness of the VAT cut that will come into force on July 1st. "In the Council of Experts, we assume that a little more than half of the VAT reduction will be passed on to consumers," Feld told the newspapers of the Funke media group. "To this extent there is a pull-forward effect into 2020, so that consumption should be correspondingly lower in 2021."

The Bundestag and Bundesrat had passed important parts of the EUR 130 billion stimulus package on Monday, which is intended to boost consumption again. The largest stimulus package in German history is intended to relieve millions of citizens and bring the economy back on a growth path.

The SPD chairman, Norbert Walter-Borjans, was convinced that the VAT reduction would "noticeably brighten the consumer climate". Worries that the tax benefit could not be passed on to the customers would evaporate, he predicted.

On the other hand, criticism of the stimulus package also came from DIW boss Marcel Fratzscher. "The economic stimulus package is blind to many important aspects," said the President of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) to the "Passauer Neue Presse" (Tuesday). This applies, for example, to the issues of intergenerational equity, equality between men and women and other sustainability issues.

Shortly before the start of the German EU Council Presidency, Federal Finance Minister Olaf Scholz (SPD) underlined the willingness of the Federal Government to support the reconstruction of European crisis countries with financial aid. "Our prosperity in Germany depends heavily on the fact that our companies can sell their products abroad or buy products from there," Scholz told the editorial network Germany (RND / Tuesday). Italy, Spain and other European countries are extremely important trading partners for Germany. "It is therefore in our own best interest if we all make a contribution to ensuring that these countries, which have been particularly hard hit by the corona pandemic, are getting back on their feet quickly."
