Munich orders masks on as virus resurges
Eurozone was the epicenter of Coronavirus in first and second quarter of 2020 and America has left them behind, some have called it the herd immunity and some have called it late but effective implementation of guidelines by EU countries. Extrapolating Spanish flu, a second wave was also suggested but as the number of cases dropped in Spain and Germany, they have slowly opened up businesses and life has returned to semi normal but a recent notice has turn heads back to Germany. According to The Jakarta Post The German city of Munich will require masks to be worn at the busiest public spaces in tightened restrictions announced Monday by authorities to fight resurgence in Coronavirus infections. Social distancing guidelines will be reinstated as gathering of two families or maximum of 5 individuals as confirmed by mayor Dieter Reiter. The recent surge in the infection breaking a threshold of 50 for every 100,000 people to 55.9 has led to the drastic steps of reinstating the restrictions. Coronavirus cases in Germany were dormant since April but now in September there is a rise in cases across Germany. Government spokesman Steffen Seibert released a statement on this matter. If we look at some of our most important European partners, we see that there is once again almost uncontrolled spread of infections and we have no reason to think that it won't happen here too Germany on Monday has recorded 922 new Covid related cases, bringing the overall total so far to 272,337 cases. But according to the Robert Koch Institute for disease control, the number of casualties remained unchanged at 9,386. Is the second wave around the corner? A humble request, wearing a mask and keeping safe by following social distancing guidelines is free and most effective way. Do it for the loved ones.
