Cologne Mayor Henrietta Recker believes that the situation with the coronavirus pandemic in Cologne, the fourth largest city in Germany, is more than “very serious … we are one step away from disaster”, – said Recker. “The rate at which the number of infected people is growing presents us with many challenges.” The ratio of detected infected per 100,000 inhabitants over the past seven days in Cologne is currently 120.1.
The politician emphasizes that everyone’s actions are now important to prevent a possible lockdown. “We don’t have many options,” Recker says. “The wave needs to be broken now. We must take decisive steps. ”
In Cologne, only the closest relatives are allowed to meet. At the beginning of the fifth season of the year, the 11 November carnival, politicians and decision-makers are faced with the extraordinary task of making the city “as unattractive as possible for the celebrants.” Preventing parties and celebrations will help prevent the spread of the virus.
