The state of Thuringia wants to end the general corona restrictions at the beginning of June.

This would make national regulations on minimum clearances, wearing mouth-nose protection and contact restrictions a thing of the past.

Only local measures should then take the place of the country-wide requirements if a certain infection rate is exceeded in a region.

The state of Thuringia wants to end the general corona restrictions at the beginning of June. This would make national regulations on minimum clearances, wearing mouth-nose protection and contact restrictions a thing of the past. “From June 6, I would like to lift the general lockdown and replace it with a package of measures that focus on local authorizations,” Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow (left) told the newspapers of the Thuringia media group (Saturday). According to a government spokeswoman, the details will be discussed at the cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

Only local measures should then take the place of the country-wide requirements if a certain infection rate is exceeded in a region. A limit of 35 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week is under discussion. According to the latest infection figures published by the State Chancellery, the value is only exceeded in one district: the district of Sonneberg in the south of the Free State. According to the plans, the state crisis team is to be dissolved and replaced by an alarm system in which the Ministry of Health takes over central control.

In total, more than 2,800 people have been proven to be infected with the corona virus in Thuringia

There is a similar approach in Thuringia with a view to regions with a particularly high infection rate. If it is above 50 in a county or county-level city, local authorities must take measures to contain the pandemic that go beyond the state’s requirements. This had previously affected the Greiz and Sonneberg districts. The district offices had had to adopt stricter restrictions under the control of the Ministry of Health.

The country’s current Corona regulation is valid until June 5. Then, according to the information, further steps towards regular operation should also be taken for schools and kindergartens. To do this, teachers and educators should be given the opportunity to be tested for the Sars-CoV-2 virus even without symptoms of illness. According to the plans, the country will bear the costs for this.

According to figures from the State Chancellery, the infection rate nationwide was 5.8 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within a week. In total, more than 2,800 people have been proven to be infected with the corona virus in Thuringia, 151 have died of or with such an infection. The number of patients who have since recovered is estimated at more than 2,400.
