the decision of the provinces to prohibit the inhabitants of the circle Gütersloh stay in Hotels came. Then the anger of politicians from the Region. Prime Minister Armin Laschet turned, however, to stigmatise the citizens of his state. And Stephen Paul, the Deputy of the FDP in the state Parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia, spoke on Twitter of "discrimination".
This is a big word, but it is incorrectly selected. What are the countries doing to protect their citizens from infection, is just not discrimination of gütersloh. You can explain with a simple example. When a police officer inspected a Black, and only because he is black, then that is discriminatory.
If a COP picks up a Black solid, the throwing of beer bottles, then that is not discriminatory. You just have to treat like as like. For example, Black and White. But not rioters and uninvolved observer.FAZ.NET completely

This is also true in the Corona-crisis. The health departments may deal with one of the Infected than you can with a Healthy. You may not impose, for example, to quarantine him. You are even allowed to send someone in quarantine, which was only a couple of times with an Infected Squash. The suspicion that he might have infected, and the Virus is more widespread, enough. All of the infection protection act regulates. And then the countries are governed.
you have a duty to prevent the spread of the pandemic. For this, you can do things you would not do in normal times. You just need to make sure that their actions are proportionate. It was absolutely proportionate to prohibit citizens from Gütersloh stay in Hotels. The measure is even comparatively mild, unlike in the case of a ban on entry.
A gütersloh, wants to be with his family to the sea, could have more to do. He would then have to stay in a Camper. On Friday, the Federal government and the Länder agreed on a more precise rule for holiday makers from the concerned circle. Who can prove that he is healthy, can now descend even in the Hotel.
All of these restrictions while only the short. Until it is known how many people have been infected in a circle really, and how big the risk is. If it turns out that most of them are healthy, must be readjusted. Otherwise, the courts would overturn the decisions anyway. As so often before.Updated Date: 28 June 2020, 18:19
