In view of the sustained increase in the number of infections and the outbreak of a new, apparently even more aggressive virus variant, Berlin’s Senator for Health Dilek Kalayci (SPD) is calling for the federal government to intervene quickly. “I call on the federal government to use a federal emergency brake,” Kalayci told the “Berliner Morgenpost” on Saturday. This is intended to enforce measures such as the ban on major events nationwide. At the same time, she appealed to Berliners to avoid major events, especially indoors, in order to reduce the risk of infection.
According to Kalaycis, no case of the new dangerous virus variant Omikron has so far occurred in Berlin; according to the Senator of Health, the laboratories are prepared for this and can sequence and recognize the mutated virus.
