Germany: Will public transport be suspended in the fight against the pandemic?

Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, like many health experts, believe that compared to the situation in the spring, during the first lockdown, the people of Germany are currently too mobile. The inhabitants of the country move too much both regionally and within the country and even abroad.

The head of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) Lothar Wheeler confirmed that the current data on the movement of citizens confirms that isolation measures are not implemented as actively as in the spring. Fewer people work from home, too many citizens travel by buses, electric trains and trains. And too many day trips take place on weekends.

The publication “Bild” previously reported that the office plans to significantly tighten the previously adopted measures: in particular, the movement of regional and intercity public transport may be suspended. However, Merkel said at a meeting of the CDU presidium that the suspension of public transport was not planned, according to ARD.

Based on reports from many media outlets, some of which cite information from government circles, Office officials are concerned about whether significantly more people will be able to work from home.
