The district mayor of Berlin-Neukölln, Martin Hikel (SPD), has welcomed the new corona resolutions of the Senate.
Hikel described the expansion of the 2G-Plus rule to include gastronomy as well as in the cultural and leisure sector as sensible. People with a booster vaccination would have a lower risk of infection. The regulation would create incentives for boosters and at the same time avoid having to close shops again, for example.
Whether these measures will be enough cannot yet be said, said the SPD politician. “We’ll see. To say ‘yes, that’s enough’ would be presumptuous, but also to say in general ‘that is not enough’ would be presumptuous.” Experience shows that the “breakwater” has always been a changed behavior of people. “When you see that it’s threatening right now, and I think it’s very, very clear to everyone, that you should reduce your contacts altogether now.”
Hikel called the particularly high incidence figures in Neukölln worrying, but not surprising. On the one hand, a strong increase was foreseeable, on the other hand, Neukölln was often a “sad pioneer” in the past year as well. “We have many districts with a high population density, the socio-economic conditions are not consistently as good as in other districts.”
