The debate about the corona isolation rules is entering the next round: FDP parliamentary group leader Christian Dürr proposes an alternative to the obligation to isolate in the event of a corona infection.

FDP parliamentary group leader Christian Dürr resumes the debate about easing the corona isolation rules. “Many other European countries are going the way that is positive
Tested no longer have to go into forced isolation,” he told the “Spiegel”.

“Here, too, we should rely on more personal responsibility in Germany, as we do with other infectious diseases. For example, after an infection, you could leave the house with a mask and keep your distance.”

Federal Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach (SPD) had only received proposals for an extensive end to the officially ordered isolation requirement for infected people at the beginning of April after a wave of criticism. This would “send the wrong signal psychologically” and be understood as a step towards relaxation. The health authorities should therefore continue to order isolation, only no longer the quarantine for contact persons of infected people. The duration of the secretions should also be reduced to five days. The ministry had announced a new proposal to the federal states.
