BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – In the event of an acute overload of the health system in the corona pandemic, a group of experts brings, among other things, the planning of a short but intensive shutdown of many areas of public life into play. School closings should only be considered as a last resort, “unless they are necessary to relieve the pediatric health system,” says a strategy paper published on Thursday. Such a bundle of measures is referred to as an “emergency circuit breaker”. “It is important to plan it at an early stage and to carry it out as strongly as possible so that the effort pays off disproportionately,” it says. “Die Zeit” first reported on the paper on strategies for the winter on Thursday.

“A half-hearted emergency circuit breaker does not work,” writes the group, which includes virologist Sandra Ciesek, intensive care physician Christian Karagiannidis, physicist Viola Priesemann, virologist Ulrike Protzer and epidemiologist Eva Grill. The following parts of the package of measures are named in the paper: Home office and close-knit test obligation at the workplace, reduction in group size in kindergartens, schools and at work alike, closure / reduction of shops, restaurants, services and events, as well as a generally significant reduction in contacts at work, in public and in private.
