Holetschek calls for legal framework for possible fall coronavirus wave

Bavarian Health Minister Klaus Holleczyk (CSU) has called on the federal government to pay attention to the legal framework for a possible new coronavirus wave in the fall. His ministry is currently consulting with experts on the necessary preparations. “But the best pandemic plan is of little use if we don’t get tools from the federal government with which we can reasonably implement it,” Holczyk said. Specifically, the Minister would like an updated Infection Prevention Act. As per the current situation, this expires on September 23rd. This would eliminate the possibility of ordering school exams. “If the situation worsens again, we must be able to protect children and young people,” Holetschek said. The Infection Protection Act can be amended and extended. The Minister of Health has also asked the federal government to pay a nursing stipend to medical staff.
