Germany Bans Gathering Of More Than 2 People by Lanrelagboi: 10:42pm On Mar 22
What are Germany's new coronavirus social distancing rules?
Germany has implemented drastic restrictions on public and social life, as the country tackles the coronavirus pandemic. But it appears some states think they have better plans in place.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced on Sunday a nine-point plan to be implemented nationwide in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus.

The measures were announced following a telephone meeting with the head of Germany's 16 states.

Infections from COVID-19 in Germany rose to 23,974 on Sunday, with 92 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.

What are the new measures?

Public gatherings of more than two people will be banned. There will be exceptions for families and those living together.
General contact with others should be reduced to a minimum.
A 1.5-meter (4.9 feet) distance should be kept at all times when in public.
Gastronomy businesses must close. Businesses offering food delivery and collection will be allowed to remain open.
Service providers such as hair-dressers, cosmetic, massage and tattoo studios where a 2-meter distance between people is not possible must also close. Businesses and centers offering medical treatments may remain open.
Police and other law enforcement agencies will enforce any infractions of the new rules — Merkel did not state what the punishment would be for anyone not abiding by the new measures.
Hygiene regulations must be implemented for staff in the workplace, or for visitors.
Commuting to work, helping others and exercising alone outside will still be permissible, as long as the activities are carried out in abidance with the guidelines.
The measures will remain in place, initially for the next two weeks.

Show sense and heart'

The stricter measures follow an appeal made by Merkel last week asking people in Germany to stick to guidelines.

"This is my urgent appeal to the few who have struggled to follow the rules. Please let's all pull together to do what's right for our country. Show sense and heart," she said during Sunday's announcement.

How will the new rules be implemented?

Germany operates as a federal system, with Merkel herself calling the measures "guidelines."

Bavaria already implemented a state-wide lockdown before Merkel announced Sunday's measures. According to DPA news agency, the state will not carry out the state guidelines, banning meetings of more than two people.

Rhineland-Palatinate plans to enact a far-reaching ban on contact. It is not known for how many people.

In Saxony, from Monday onwards, there will be movement restrictions in place. Leaving the house will only be permitted in certain circumstances.

North Rhine-Westphalia announced it would be implementing the two-person ban, as advised by Merkel on Sunday. Laschet said there will be fines of up to €25,000 ($27,000) for those breaking the rules, and not keeping the advised 2-meter distance between people.

Anything to protect their citizens is highly welcome.

Earlier today,
We saw a video about how Zimbabwean Policemen were flogging some people that went against the government order of staying at home and not going to church.

But in our darling country, we read that a particular church made sure they closed all their branches in UK and USA but decided to go against Nigeria Government order and gather thousands of people together for church service today, in the midst of this deadly virus killing thousands of people all over the world.
(Personally, we are trying hard to believe this is not true!)
cos many other churches respected the FG Orders and put their members first.

Personally @MANNABBQGRILLS, we will like to keep adhering to what the Holy Book told us about respecting men of God.
We will never say any negative things against them.
God told us he's gonna handle their matters perosnally.

We will win this war as a nation.
This too shall pass.

Below is what the HOLY BOOK told us to do in situations like this.......

If this were to be nigeria just watch how they will senselessly gather for no meaning Just to prove that nigerians will always be nigerians..... They can never hear word....

The dead vulture meat seller above and below me is claiming government should enforce it in nigeria, how can it be enforced when your slowpoke of a presidiotic father is ignorant and adamant to everything that seems right... Is he even aware of what coronavirus is?

Smh...

Edoprince93, looking at your signature,
was when we realised that selling dead meats is your family business.
Only a loser and failure in life can go that low
.

On Nairaland,
when you have been able to place some nuisances to their miserable place after lot of knocks on their heads like the kid, edoprince93 above,
They will never have the effrontery to quote your moniker directly to say rubbish anymore, even if your moniker is written in CAPITAL LETTERS! wink
You will only see them hiding behind themselves quoting you or codedly posting so your moniker won't see their stupidity and give them the usual GBAS-GBOS that reset their brains sharply!
(We have been noticing that on a weekly basis now!)
They are learning how to respect the rules of the forum by force by fire.
We told u , una go dey alright las las tongue tongue
Edoprince93 the kiddo, stop being a coward, okay?
You and your senior wailing zombies.
Fake, substandard trolls.
The taming of the shrew! grin cheesy wink


Osidazz19:

Misplaced and misdirected anger. Always looking for any stupid reason to abuse Buhari. Soon people like you will blame the whole Coronavirus on Buhari. TRASH
Thanks for replying that kid.
He has learnt his lessons.
He has eaten his words raw already wink
It is always good and refreshing to see that we still have reasonable youths like you on this forum.

Atheist, who call God/Jehovah different kind of demeaning and unprintable names.
Learn to take your time to read before commenting,
So you won't sound so 'slow' next time and stop embarassing your fellow atheists online.

Now read the quote below for the 2nd time.......this time very slowly,
by doing so, you will get your answer.
Internet is not by trolling on God!!
We pray you find him soon.
SMH!

Public gatherings of more than two people will be banned.
There will be exceptions for families and those living together.



iswallker:

You didn't read the write up that's why you are commenting nonsense.. undecided
He has learnt his lessons now, after making mouth everywhere.

Meanwhile,
Government should enforce the one we have going on here, especially on large gatherings.
It is for Nigerian's safety.
Sane Nigerians that is.

On a lighter mood amidst on this crazy happenings around the world........

Very low death rate in Germany, just like South Korea and both countries are carrying out 20k+ tests daily, with enough testing you can contain this virus without locking down everywhere. South Korea was just behind China but did we hear of any 600+ daily deaths there like Italy? Anyway, let Nigeria and these other countries keep on being slow, population is too high sef.

Last week I was surprised seeing people in cologne partying while Italians are battling with the virus. Meanwhile, there's a free ride of cars from italy to Germany.

God help us...over 30, 000 people are already infected by this deadly virus.
