Berlin (dts news agency) – In view of the first cases of the Indian Corona variant in Germany, World Medical President Frank Ulrich Montgomery has advocated appropriate protective measures. “The Indian mutation variant of the virus, which is said to be particularly contagious and particularly dangerous, clearly shows us how important international agreements, consistent lockdown measures and restrictions on mobility are,” he told the “Rheinische Post” (Saturday edition).
Mutations could only take place where infections have passed. “That is why the German Infection Protection Act is correct. That’s why we need contact restrictions and a consistent, uniform approach, ”said Montgomery. Preventing mobility is the key word for containing the pandemic. On Friday, Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) and the Vice President of the Robert Koch Institute, Lars Schaade, commented on the spread of the virus mutation from India. The number of evidence so far is therefore 21 cases in Germany.
