COLOGNE (dpa-AFX) – The North Rhine-Westphalian Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) has accused Cologne of negligent controls of the Corona rules at the start of the carnival. “We tightened the rules in advance together with the city. It is important to be careful that the necessary rules are consistently implemented and monitored,” said Wüst to the news magazine “Spiegel”. “Unfortunately, that didn’t happen everywhere.” It is not enough to “proclaim” a 2G rule, said Wüst. The regulation that only allows vaccinated and convalescent access must also be controlled.
On November 11th, thousands of people celebrated the beginning of the carnival season in Cologne. Pictures and videos of densely populated party hotspots led to a lot of critical comments. Cologne had cordoned off the celebration areas for the day and put them under the 2G rule./idt/DP/ngu
