Germans will be fined £440 for STANDING too close to each other

The bureaucrats have gone insane.

From Daily Mail: Germans risk being fined up to 500 euros (£440) for standing too close to each other from today as officials crack down on people flouting rules brought in to control coronavirus.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has ordered people not to leave their homes unless they have an exceptional reason such as grocery shopping, exercise or medical appointments.

Gatherings of more than two people are banned and a distance of at least five feet (1.5 metres) must be kept from others at all times.

Bavaria, Germany’s largest state, has been the worst affected by the coronavirus so far, with more than 18,000 cases. There, people who stand less than five feet apart risk being fined 150 euros.

The crack down comes as Germany’s death toll from coronavirus broke through 1,000 today while the number of infections reached nearly 80,000.

The Robert Koch Institute announced another 145 deaths in its latest figures this morning, a similar jump to yesterday’s 140 and Wednesday’s 149. It brings Germany’s death toll from 872 to 1,017, with a mortality rate of 1.3 per cent of cases – a figure which is still low but is rising relentlessly.

The total infection count rose by 6,174, marginally higher than yesterday, taking the tally from 73,522 to 79,696.

A death rate of 1.3 percent? I seriously doubt that as it doesn’t take into account the people who are asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic, which is probably the vast majority. And those people will never become “cases” unless they are foolish enough to be tested. Then it won’t matter if they are sick or healthy, they become cases regardless. I wonder how C-19 is diagnosed in Germany, whether they use diagnostically worthless PCR or equally worthless antibody tests. Maybe they don’t have an “exit strategy”. The best exit strategy would be to simply call it off, knock it on the… Read more »

440 Euros for getting too close? Wow! I guess a Fraulein won’t have to fake headaches any more.

Ha. Do not question Germanic mind/will (we SHOULD know–we fought 2 world wars w/them). I grew up in rural Pennsylvania w/ generational offspring of these Germans/German-speaking Swiss that started in the early 1700’s in my lines (if I’d ever tell you my maiden name, you’d say…”OH, I see.” ) & they are STILL rigid, methodical, & thorough on any & everything they take on/confront. For instance, some years ago I went “home” to attend a yearly “Granger’s Fair” for farmers, where families set up tents & RVs/trailers to camp nights during the fair (b/c the men folk stay home a… Read more »
