when is a country as Covid-19-risk area?

The classification of a country as a risk area, according to joint analysis and decision-making by the Federal Ministry of health, the Federal Foreign office (AA) and the Federal Ministry of the interior, explained to the RKI. A two-stage assessment is based on:

  • determine First of all the Offices, in which countries or regions in the past seven days, more than 50 Neuinfizierte per 100,000 inhabitants has given.
  • In a second step, they explore whether other areas are at increased risk – even if they fall below the specified limit value is nominally under the. Evidence is in doubt, for example, the reporting of the German missions abroad on taken or not taken effective measures to curb the pandemic. A role, the available test capacity can also play.

virologists do not keep a holiday in the summer, in principle, in spite of the pandemic for reasonable – unless you are traveling in a risk area and the measures, such as Professor Friedemann Weber in an interview with FOCUS Online emphasized. "Then you have to just be careful accordingly and keep your distance. But most of them are aware of that, so I see no reason the holiday to cancel.“

in Addition to the sanitation and clearance rules, it will be useful to spend the holidays separated from other guests in an apartment instead of a large Hotel. Or to travel with the car instead of the plane to the resort. This both reduces the number of social contacts, and thus the risk of contagion.
