Corona app warns after podium in Weltspiegel cinema
District of Mettmann A corona warning caused an aftermath in the discussion of the Bundestag candidates in Mettmann. The “Corona warning app” had triggered and indicated an “increased risk”.
After the discussion of the Bundestag candidates on Tuesday evening in the Mettmanner Weltspiegel cinema, the corona warning app triggered the corona warning app for at least three of the around 70 audience members plus the candidate podium and cinema employees and indicated an “increased risk”. The “red card” in the display indicates an encounter with a person who later tested positive for the corona virus.
Organizer Klaus Bartel from the Gesellschaft zu Mettmann association informed the public and some of the panelists immediately after the information on Thursday. The news came out of care, wrote Bartel: “We hope that no acute infection has taken place.” Bartel said he himself would undergo a PCR test on Friday when asked by our editorial team. The 3G rules applied to the event in the Weltspiegel cinema. Anyone wishing to participate had to either have recovered, be vaccinated or tested negative.
“I am double vaccinated and have no election campaign event on Thursday or Friday,” said Roland Schüren, the Bundestag candidate for the Greens. As a precaution, he will now do a PCR test, since you can still pass the virus on to people who have been vaccinated. “You have to deal with this situation very objectively.”
SPD candidate Christian Steinacker works as an inclusion worker at a school. “Immediately after the organizer’s advice, I wrote a self-text that turned out negative.” Of course, this is always just a snapshot, so you have to be careful now. “By the way, my Corona warning app did not trigger. It still shows a green screen and thus a low risk of being infected with Covid-19. “
The FDP candidate Nicole Burda works as a teacher at the Carl-Fuhlrott-Realschule. “I will now test myself twice a day.” There are some corona cases and quarantine orders at secondary school. Still, you have to be careful. A test is always just a snapshot.
CDU candidate Klaus Wiener was also tested immediately after the news reached him. Result: “Fortunately negative”.
