in Short: "This 'Blame Game' brings nothing,"

Although now to take a Commission in the Federal state of Tyrol, the much-criticised crisis management under the magnifying glass. However, the statements of the managers in the Interviews reveal a dramatic ignorance of the Situation.

Already on 5. March there had been warnings that had infected an Icelandic tour group in the ski resort. But the skiing continued for days. There is no reason for blame, from the point of view of the Austrian Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP). He responds really irritated to questions on the topic of Ischgl. In an Interview with the "mirror" at the end of may Short said: "If you make the attempt, it was Ischgl to blame for a pandemic, then you do it." His impression: A "Blame Game", i.e., mutual Blame, bring nothing. Reuters/Ronald Zak/AP/dpa knew What to Chancellor Sebastian Kurz?.

similarly, he had formulated already in the ARD Talk show by Sandra maischberger at the end of April. "I answered a bit of a hard time with this Blame Game", there. In Italy it is hot, the Virus had been introduced from China, in Austria, showed in Italy, and in Germany, it is significant to Ischgl. He had heard that the Virus could have spread from Munich.

Top crisis Manager will not push the Tyrolean authorities blame in the shoes of

and Then it looks so far. On The Contrary. Consequences for himself and his government fears a Short.

That would have kept thousands of tourists from infection with severe consequences.“
