About 3,000 casually chosen households will be part of the experiment

Bavaria began a more extensive test campaign on Friday to find out the extent of the coronavirus epidemic in Germany that will last over a year, according to that region’s Prime Minister Markus Söder. About 3,000 casually chosen households will be part of the experiment, in which blood tests will be taken to try to reveal the unknown number of infected and people who have already overcome the disease and have become immune. Two police officers will accompany the health personnel who will go to the homes before the increasing number of scammers who take advantage of the epidemic to deceive the unwary.

Söder noted that the number of those infected with COVID-19 continues to increase, although in a slower way. “The curve is flattening out,” the Bavarian prime minister noted. Lothar Wieler, president of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), responsible for coordinating the fight against the epidemic in Germany, was also hopeful that the infections would subside given the reduction in the rate of reproduction of diseases by one, that is, each Infected only infects one person and not more than three, as when the virus began to spread throughout the country.

Wieler was satisfied before increasing intensive care beds from 28,000 to 40,000 within a week although he expressed his fear that they will not be achieved, he warned that “as long as we do not have a vaccine, we will have the disease.” Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn also noted a slight decline in the epidemic in Germany. “We see early trends that the growth of new infections is slowing down,” he said.

On the other hand, Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel has abandoned her two-week voluntary quarantine after confirming with new tests that she is not infected with Covid-19. Merkel had confined herself to her private home after coming into contact with a doctor who tested positive soon after.. “Fortunately, the chancellor has undergone several tests that have given negative results,” said Steffen Seibert, spokesperson for the head of the German government, who commented that Merkel has returned to her office at the Federal Chancellery.
