Lasse Petersdotter, Schleswig-Holstein's new parliamentary group leader for the Greens, has spoken out in favor of dealing with the corona pandemic in a way that is adapted to the changed situation. "The reasonable caution must continue to be a guideline for us," said Petersdotter of the German Press Agency. "But we shouldn't cling to certain measures if they are no longer the right ones."
In the former state government with the CDU and FDP, the Greens were considered rather cautious. "We have to be prepared to give up beliefs or develop new ones," said Petersdotter. But that does not mean a departure from the previous course. "I think that's completely right." However, it is important to get involved with new arguments.
The situation is currently changing, said Petersdotter. "Some experts are already talking about an endemic phase, while others are even more skeptical." Therefore, it remains necessary to continue to seek advice from experts from different areas before future decisions are made by the state government. "So far we have always done well in the pandemic in the north."
The obligation to isolate after a corona infection is still necessary for the time being, said Petersdotter. "We are not yet in a position to say that it doesn't matter whether someone has Corona or not." Because there are still risks for certain groups and sometimes long illnesses.
According to a representative Infratest dimap survey for the ARD Germany trend, 69 percent currently want to stick to the regulation of at least five days of isolation. More than one in four (28 percent), on the other hand, spoke in favor of lifting the obligation to isolate.
