6.38 a.m.: Berlin FDP calls for the possibility of opening shops with FFP2 masks
The Berlin FDP campaigns for retailers to be allowed to open their stores if there is an FFP2 mask requirement. “I advocate that the Berlin Senate set up a short-term program for the distribution of FFP2 masks,” said the FDP parliamentary group leader Sebastian Czaja. “Every retailer who undertakes to enforce an FFP2 mask requirement in his shop should also be able to reopen his shop.” According to the ideas of the FDP, the Senate should ensure that enough masks are available and also be responsible for financing.
The Corona measures should not rely on hardship alone, they should enable meaningful opening perspectives, argued Czaja. “In contrast to everyday masks, FFP2 masks have been proven to offer real protection and reduce the risk of infection to almost zero when worn correctly.”
The measures are demonstrably showing little or no effect,” said Czaja. “If we continue on the path of the Federal Government and the Berlin Senate, we would have to enter a hard lockdown every three months.
The Senate must finally adopt targeted measures that work and enable freedom. “
Bavaria has announced an obligation to wear FFP2 masks in local public transport and retail, which will apply from Monday. Finance Senator Kollatz said on Tuesday that he was certain that the Senate would deal with the issue at its next meeting on Tuesday.
At the same time, the SPD politician raised concerns about such a mask requirement: Hospitals and scientists had regularly heard on the subject that FFP2 masks had to be removed after a relatively short time and that they were not easy to clean and reuse with generally accessible means said Kollatz.
