in Spite of Corona-crisis to open in Germany in accordance with and to the Local again. This strict requirements - holding a Hygiene expert, but for the most part insufficient to apply. The Professor from the Berlin hygienic Institute , therefore, has tips for businesses - and also some advice to the guests. Here you will find the basic facts to the Coronavirus* and the Corona-News from Germany. We also offer them in a map, the current case numbers in Germany*.

Corona-the crisis in the catering industry: Zastrow, most of the requirements for deficient

The most plans Zastrow defective and he is afraid of devastating consequences. "The Opening of the Restaurants, only two States have taken into account the most dangerous and crucial transmission mechanisms* Bavaria* and Rhineland-Palatinate," said Hygiene expert, in an interview with the Bild newspaper (article is behind the paywall). "This is a heavy, fire-dangerous failure of the other countries. The arrangements of Berlin, Bremen, Hamburg, Brandenburg and Schleswig-Holstein are a bad joke! "

The main problem is, according to Zastrow, that terms such as "hygiene rules" are not so imprecise that the Gastro-industry did not know what to do exactly . The normal Hygiene - and-distance rules* do not reach out to the experts in restaurants. "Söder has it right: In Bavaria , the tableware , particularly glasses and Cutlery and everything must, what you put in the mouth, be cleaned up> after use as a disinfectant distance is in comparison, of secondary importance and Wipe of the seat and floors, even meaningless. "But besabberte cups, glasses and Cutlery are a huge danger," said Zastrow in an interview with the Bild newspaper.

For the operations of the Professor , some of the advice , how you should best to proceed:

Cutlery and crockery disinfect : you don't need a disinfectant solution. Instead, it is rich in the dishwasher on high a temperature of 70 degrees to set up and use a disinfectant dishwashing liquid, so as to corona to kill viruses and other bacteria. Mask duty: This is Zastrow, according to especially in the kitchen of immense importance. "The fact that only the service portal is to wear a mouth-nose protection, is catastrophically wrong," kritisert Zastrow. "Of course you should wear one, but this is not essential. It is necessary, however, that in the kitchen, where the food is prepared, a mask must be worn.“ Because that's where the main source of infection was in the restaurant business. the masks - to wear it the right way: To say on this topic Zastrow: "Not under the nose, under the chin, not on the head, and not over-the-ear. the Only over the mouth and nose .“ the tables clean : to disinfect tables correctly, you must - at each change of Guest - with a fresh and disinfectants* soaked cloth explains the Hygiene expert. "The small bucket, in which a used cloth floating in a grey broth, is the method used to distribute viruses and bacteria on the tables. This was hygienic always been a disaster, because it is so widespread viruses and bacteria. But in the current situation, it is of even greater importance,“ stresses Zastrow.

His conclusion to the Gastro-rules is unambiguous: Only two of the 16 Federal States to have its assessment indicates that a sufficient Corona-hygiene concepts. Therefore, the expert urges urgent repairs . But the alone are not enough for him. "Hygiene concepts are one thing, but the countries and health offices will not have to revise, but also tough and in the case of non-compliance with the Load close immediately ", calls Zastrow with clear words. If this is done, see he the next disaster, and the second wave of Infection* waiting to happen.
