Corona: Living and vacationing in the risk area – you need to know that

AAt first glance, Barendorf and Timmendorfer Strand are only separated by a short distance of 20 kilometers. Both vacation spots are on the Baltic Sea, and attract with white sandy beaches and many hostels. For some Berliners, the choice between travel locations has become a question of fate.

Because while all capital city residents in Barendorf are allowed to enjoy their vacation without restriction, many in Timmendorfer Strand have to be in quarantine for two weeks – at least when entering the country now. At the same time, there is also great uncertainty for Berlin vacationers. WELT explains what rights and obligations vacationers now have.

Without an allocation, the upper limit is 200 or 100 people. Markets without a folk festival character, such as smaller arts and crafts markets or flea markets without large numbers of visitors, are permitted outdoors subject to certain conditions. To curb the infections, the government is placing restrictions on residence in public spaces. If the incidence value rises steadily above 50, only people from a maximum of two households, close relatives or groups of up to five people should be able to gather. This should also apply to meetings on private property or meetings in privately used rooms.

Under certain conditions, more than 300 spectators may come to sports events. At large events with more than 1000 sports fans, only a third of the seats may be occupied. Special regulations apply, for example, to the Bundesliga: according to an agreement between the federal states, only 20 percent of the places may be occupied. Stricter requirements apply in the cities of Hamm and Remscheid because the number of new infections there has recently been very high.

Rhineland-Palatinate: Up to 250 people can gather indoors at events, including trade fairs or markets. Events with up to 500 people are possible outdoors, provided the distance is maintained and contact details are recorded.

Normality finds its way into handball (neue-deutschland.de)

Captain Domagoj Duvnjak kissed the silver cup, behind him his teammates danced in the confetti rain – but apart from the brief jubilation of THW Kiel over the tenth Supercup triumph, the comeback of German handball after a 207-day Corona break was nothing as usual. Safety first was the motto on Saturday evening in the Düsseldorf ISS Dome, where the German record champion secured the first title of the 2020/21 season in front of 2100 spectators by 28:24 (14:13) in the 102nd North Derby against runner-up SG Flensburg-Handewitt.

Much more important for the entire industry was the consistent implementation of the strict hygiene concept with minimum clearance, mouth and nose protection and a ban on alcohol. »All specifications were met. No spectator or player had to take a health risk, «said HBL managing director Frank Bohmann, relieved after the final whistle. “We are therefore very satisfied with the event.”

The fact that the capacity of 2,640 visitors approved by the responsible health department was not fully used did not detract from the mood in the stands. “It was super, super nice to play in front of fans again. The atmosphere was great, «said Flensburg coach Maik Machulla. “I am optimistic that this will continue in the future and I am looking forward to seeing lots of people in the halls again.”

Bohmann is also hoping for this – if possible as soon as next Thursday, when the Bundesliga starts its 55th season. “Of course we would like more spectators and hope to finish the trial period well by the end of October and then be able to increase the number of spectators at all Bundesliga locations,” said the 55-year-old.

Machulla expects the fans to lose their usual home advantage in the first few weeks. “Some will deal with the spectator situation a little better than the others. Everyone has to adjust mentally and make the best of it, «said the SG trainer. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the 43-year-old expects a »difficult season with many question marks. But the most important thing is that we play. ”

Not only because of the Supercup win, defending champion Kiel goes to Norway’s superstar Sander Sagosen as a big favorite in the season. With the 25-year-old, THW has become even stronger. Sagosen was the best shooter against Flensburg together with Niclas Ekberg (both seven goals) and also shone as a preparer. “I’m of course happy about my first title with the THW,” said the backcourt player who came from Paris Saint-Germain.

Just 48 hours after the 27:35 home debacle in the Champions League against HBC Nantes, the Kiel team was in better shape. “Everything wasn’t perfect, but we showed our true colors. I would like to congratulate the team on that. I’m proud that she reacted so quickly, «praised THW trainer Filip Jicha. But he did not want to draw any conclusions about the Bundesliga title race from the game.

Nevertheless, one thing is clear: when reaching for the championship trophy, there is no getting around the 21-time record champion. “We are very well positioned in terms of quality,” said Kiel’s sports director Viktor Szilagyi. The strong national goalkeeper Dario Quenstedt said goodbye with a clear declaration of war on the competition: “If we give 100 percent gas and not just 80, then we will be able to beat any team.” Dpa / nd

Schleswig-Holstein: The Elbe is a blessing and a curse for Lauenburg

EThe merchant carriages needed a day trip from Lüneburg to Lauenburg in the Middle Ages. Loaded with salt for Scandinavia and Russia, the carters followed the salt route, the ancient trade route to Lübeck.

In the evening the men came to Lauenburg. On the Elbe they found inns, changed horses and stayed the night before they set off early in the morning with the precious freight.

Those who turn from Bundesstraße 5 to the lower town 70 meters below are immersed in the past of the 700-year-old town. Red tile roofs on colorful half-timbered houses, built close together between the 16th and 19th centuries.

Every square meter on the narrow bank in front of the steep slope of the Geestrücken was used. Historic buildings crowd along Elbstrasse. The richly decorated facades with their rosette decorations are stone witnesses to the wealth of their builders: craftsmen, but above all Elbe boatmen, lived in the half-timbered buildings.

Some houses were not only living space but also a workplace. Shoemakers and locksmiths had workshops there, shipping companies their offices. Breweries and schnapps distilleries produced barley juice and hard liquor. According to stories, there were around 30 breweries around 1700 – with only 1000 inhabitants.

History of shipping on the Elbe in the museum

Bicycle tourists roll over bumpy cobblestones, en route they are on the Elbe cycle path between the Czech Republic and the river mouth near Cuxhaven. Lauenburg is a popular stopover, also for visiting the Elbe Shipping Museum.

There, shipping history comes to life impressively, on interactive screens, with models and construction plans from ancient times to the present, from the dugout canoes to cargo sailors and the hard work of the hauliers, who pulled heavy barges upstream with muscle power. On a display board is noted: “They gasped, the sweat flowed like a stream down between the shoulder blades. He ate the shirts broken like a rodent. “

“The development of Lauenburg and shipping on the Elbe are closely linked to the social structure of the people and the work culture,” explains museum director Jörn Bohlmann. There are surprising things to discover in the museum.

Who knows today that from 1866 a 720 kilometer long chain from Hamburg lay upstream on the bottom of the Elbe? It was the time of rope chain shipping, which lasted until the 1920s.

37 chain steamers operated on the river. The tugs hung their barges against the current by a chain. They speak of a “rattling revolution” in the Elbe Shipping Museum.

From the 1850s onwards, passenger ships steamed in regular service on the river, and 30,000 travelers drove from Lauenburg via Geesthacht to Hamburg in 1866. Ship models from that time are on display. At the beginning of the last century, diesel engines gradually replaced steam engines as ship propulsion systems.

Historical specimens can be marveled at in the museum cellar, carefully restored by volunteers from the friends’ association. Museum director Bohlmann: “Our treasure trove for technology fans.”

Lauenburg is repeatedly threatened by floods

Even in the 1950s, the long tow trains coming upstream from Hamburg moored in Lauenburg overnight. The shops on Elbstrasse were open for the ship’s crew until midnight, some pubs for much longer. Harbor atmosphere inland.

Business was good in Lauenburg. “The Elbe is a blessing and a curse for the city,” says the city guide Claudia Tanck. This quickly becomes clear on your tour “Living with the Floods”. Devastating floods have repeatedly threatened the old town.

Tanck leads visitors along the promenade to the level board with markings of the last high water levels. 2002, 2006, 2010/11 and most recently in June 2013 the Lauenburgers were literally up to their necks.

In the small town on the Elbe river, there are still shipping company offices today. About 30 Lauenburgers are on the move as captains, helmsmen and sailors on rivers and canals. The Hitzler shipyard, founded in 1885, manufactures harbor tugs, offshore utilities, icebreakers, ferries, coasters and inland vessels.

Trips with a paddle steamer planned

Although the heyday as a shipping town is over, they fondly remember the past there, for example with the paddle steamer “Kaiser Wilhelm”, built in 1900. The ship veteran was never on the Elbe, but sailed the Weser with passengers. It was supposed to be scrapped in 1970, but the Lauenburgers bought the steamer, saved it from the scrap press and brought it to the Elbe.

“The ‘Kaiser Wilhelm’ is one of the last coal-fired paddle steamers in the world,” explains Wilhelm Bischoff from the Friends of the Elbe Shipping Museum. The ship is currently being extensively restored by the association’s members at the Hitzler shipyard. In the post-Corona period, they want to set off again for passenger trips on the Elbe with a volunteer crew.

Lots of water: The Kiel Fjord stretches right into the city center

A few hundred meters further in the power station, Reinhard Lange and a half-dozen helpers maintain the old water wheels, turbines, diesel generators and control panels in their free time. “The water turbine went into operation in 1921, it supplied the Hitzler shipyard with electricity,” says Lange.

The palm lock next door, one of the oldest chamber locks in Europe, is much older. It was part of the historic Stecknitz Canal between Lübeck and Lauenburg. But that’s another story.

Corona in SH: 42 new cases confirmed | NDR.de – News – Schleswig-Holstein

Stand: 24.09.2020 07:16 – NDR 1 Welle Nord

The state of Schleswig-Holstein publishes new figures on the corona pandemic every day. According to the state registration office, the Institute for Infection Medicine at the University of Kiel, since the outbreak of the pandemic, overall 4,540 confirmed corona cases (Data status 23.9.) Reported. There are 42 more Sars-CoV-2 infections compared to the previous day.

So far, 161 deaths related to the viral disease have been reported. This number has stayed the same for almost three weeks. In addition to the numbers for all of Schleswig-Holstein are on the Homepage of the Institute for Infection Medicine you can also see the figures for the individual districts and cities. Most corona cases have therefore occurred in the Pinneberg district (825), the fewest in Flensburg (91).

RKI estimate: around 4,100 people recovered

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) appreciatesthat about 4,100 people in Schleswig-Holstein after a coronavirus infection recovered are. According to the Ministry of Health, eight people are currently being treated in a hospital in connection with a corona infection. On April 5, this number had reached its highest level in Schleswig-Holstein with 162 hospital patients.

Seven-day comparison: No circle above limit value

In a federal-state meeting in May, the federal government and the prime ministers of the states agreed that the corona restrictions could be relaxed – largely on the responsibility of the states. Simultaneously They agreed on an emergency brake regulation: If there are more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in a district or an independent city within seven days, new restrictions must be issued for this area if the infections cannot be clearly assigned to an exact location leave (retirement home, accommodation, etc.). This is currently not the case in any Schleswig-Holstein district.

What these numbers say – and what not

The state government’s statistics show how many confirmed corona cases are known to the authorities in the country and were reported in the intended way. What the statistics cannot clearly show, let alone the current day, is the speed at which the virus is spreading. Because the number of people who have newly tested positive usually also includes post-reported cases from several days. There are delays in the reporting chain, especially around weekends and public holidays.

Chaos in the laundry supply (neue-deutschland.de)

The University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH), with its two locations in Kiel and Lübeck and around 14,500 employees, is the largest employer in the northern state and the only maximum medical care provider there. Last year the clinic in Kiel got a state-of-the-art new building costing over 320 million euros.

While equipment with high-tech is apparently being padded, Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) recently got an idea of ​​this, there is a lack of supply of work clothes. Since April, the annoyance about it has overtaken the Corona issue. A staff council letter speaks of “chaos in the laundry supply”. Nurses in particular complained that the uniforms are transparent and that the underwear they were wearing shimmered through.

In addition, due to the lack of small dress sizes, staff are often forced to wear larger tops. This in turn means that widened necklines in the chest area or larger sleeve widths lead to unpleasant intimate insights. The letter quoted an employee who felt “ashamed and humiliated” as a result. At the same time, reference is made to an increase in sexual personalities on campus. Medical staff are also affected by the complaints.

The Verdi union speaks of unreasonable conditions and a management deficit. The workers were particularly outraged by a proposal by the HR department of the UKSH for a one-off special payment so that the workers could buy white T-shirts or leggings themselves. Since then, the slogan of “bonuses for naked work” has been circulating among employees. The procurement order for the work clothing was advertised across Europe. A company from Lower Saxony that had previously supplied the UKSH was awarded the contract last summer.

The clinic is now admitting the clothing nuisance and, according to a spokeswoman, can also sympathize with the displeasure. So far, however, there have been no complaints from other institutions that are also customers of the delivery company, including the University Clinic in Greifswald, in this regard. The UKSH staff council was at least promised to order larger quantities of smaller clothing sizes. In addition, it should be possible in future to switch from white to dark blue, “analogous to the Lübeck campus,” as the clinic emphasizes.

However, it sounds cynical to say that a new item of laundry naturally feels different to an item of laundry that has been washed several times and that “the fibers become denser as a result of multiple washes”. Finally, employees are charged with contributing to the problem of insufficiently small sizes themselves: namely, by returning worn laundry too late to the UKSH’s cleaning and re-issuing cycle.

Fair trade: do good and talk about it!

Theodor Storm’s “gray city by the sea” has long since become colorful. Where the shipyard and harbor used to be, a lively promenade now beckons. However, Husum has more to offer: the city on the edge of the Wadden Sea National Park has recently become a »Fairtrade Town«. And thus part of a successful project: In the 2019 financial year, consumers spent 1.85 billion euros on fair trade products, an increase of nine percent.

“As a coastal city, climate change is close to our hearts, and we are directly affected by the increasing littering of the seas,” reports Friedemann Magaard from the parish, one of the initiators of the project. For the people of Husum, fair trade is based on three pillars: In economic terms, it is about stable minimum prices for producers in the global south, about long-term trade relationships and the possibility of pre-financing harvests. Socially it is about better working conditions. The third pillar is ecology, for example through environmentally friendly cultivation.

“Fairtrade Towns” are committed to promoting fair trade at the local level. There is broad social support for the project in Husum. In January 2018, the city invited to the opening event at the town hall. There was great interest, the local newspaper reported. In the meantime, more than 30 institutions deal with fair products. In addition to organic and world shops, this also includes commercial top dogs such as the textile house CJ Schmidt or the city slaughterhouse in Claussen. In addition, there are companies from the arts and crafts and gastronomy as well as public institutions such as the Theodor Storm School. In addition to coffee, chocolate and bananas – the bestsellers in fair trade – there are wine, flowers and soccer balls. A specially created city map shows exactly where all this is offered.

Husum with its 23,000 inhabitants is more of a small example and a late starter. Today there are 696 cities and municipalities nationwide that bear the Fairtrade Town seal. Husum joined in May. In the campaign launched in 2009, Hamburg, which is not too far away, was one of the cities from the very beginning. Berlin, on the other hand, only got fair in 2018 (rank 574).

“Do good and talk about it” has become the catchphrase for all public relations in the half century in which there is now fair trade. The Cologne-based Transfair association, which awards the Fairtrade Town title, also orientates itself on this. In a nine-page brochure, Transfair gives the municipalities tips for a so-called award ceremony: “It would be a shame if your activities and campaigns relating to the topic of fair trade were kept hidden.” Particular attention is paid to media coverage.

Now “better” is not good enough for everyone. The Forum Fairer Handel (FFH) has been criticizing the so-called volume equalization for years. Where fairly produced raw materials are not enough, conventional raw materials can be added. Transfair justifies this with the increasing variety of products. Which also has to do with the sale of Fairtrade products in conventional retail. Sales have doubled in just five years. In the case of cocoa or sugar, physical traceability is “not possible everywhere, especially for logistical reasons.” These products are labeled accordingly.

As the umbrella organization for fair trade in this country, the Forum wishes completely fair supply chains. It includes companies that sell 100 percent fair products, such as Gepa, El Puente or the world shops. Transfair / Fairtrade is not a member, but cooperates closely. “We are calling for a fair restart after the Covid 19 crisis that has to be based on social and ecological criteria,” said FFH managing director Matthias Fiedler at the annual conference in Berlin on Wednesday. The supply chain law planned by the federal government for 2021 offers a great opportunity for this. However, the fair dealers still see the key points presented so far in gray on gray.

16 new corona cases in Schleswig-Holstein – as of August 31. | NDR.de – News – Schleswig-Holstein

Stand: 01.09.2020 07:46 Uhr – NDR 1 Welle Nord

The state of Schleswig-Holstein publishes new figures on the corona pandemic every day. According to the state registration office, the Institute for Infection Medicine at the University of Kiel, since the outbreak of the pandemic, overall 4,044 confirmed corona cases (Data status August 31st) reported. This means that there are 16 more reported Sars-CoV-2 infections compared to the previous day.

No new corona-related deaths

Current information

Here you will find an overview of the reported coronavirus infections in Schleswig-Holstein, in the districts and urban districts. You can also see how the values ​​have developed. more

To date, 160 deaths related to the viral disease have been reported. This number is unchanged compared to the previous day. A total of 571 people have had to be treated in the hospital so far. In addition to the numbers for all of Schleswig-Holstein are on the Homepage of the Institute for Infection Medicine you can also see figures for the individual districts and cities. Most corona cases have therefore occurred in the Pinneberg district (743), the fewest in Flensburg (76).

RKI estimate: around 3,700 people recovered

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) appreciatesthat about 3,700 people in Schleswig-Holstein after a coronavirus infection recovered are. According to the Ministry of Health, seven people are currently being treated in a hospital in connection with a corona infection – one less than the day before. On April 5, this number had reached its highest level in Schleswig-Holstein with 162 hospital patients.

Seven-day comparison: No circle above limit value

At a federal-state meeting in May, the federal government and the prime ministers of the states agreed that, on the one hand, the corona restrictions could be relaxed – largely on the responsibility of the states. Simultaneously They agreed on an emergency brake regulation: If there are more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in a district or an independent city within seven days, new restrictions must be issued for this area if the infections cannot be clearly assigned to an exact location leave (retirement home, accommodation, etc.). This is currently not the case in any Schleswig-Holstein district.

What these numbers say – and what not

The state government’s statistics show how many confirmed corona cases are known to the authorities in the country and were reported in the intended way. What the statistics cannot show clearly, and certainly not to the current day, is the speed at which the virus is spreading. Because the number of people who have newly tested positive usually also includes post-reported cases from several days. There are delays in the reporting chain, especially around weekends and public holidays.
