The head of the Corona crisis team, city director Burkhard Hintzsche, and the head of the regulatory affairs department, Christian Zaum, were concerned about the events at the weekend. Hintzsche warned that the British mutation was on the rise in Düsseldorf. It is considered to be significantly more contagious.
Until the weekend he was of the opinion that Düsseldorf was still on the right track. “We can’t gamble away our advantage now,” warned Hintzsche. “If the population does not behave sensibly, further regulatory measures must be adopted.”
Zaum admitted that no one saw such a rush on the old town coming over the weekend. The field service of the public order office, the OSD, was on the road with increased presence, but was no longer able to bring the situation under control.
More than 300 administrative offense proceedings had been initiated, but it was noticeable that they often led to discussions or aggressive behavior. Zaum announced an increased police presence for the coming weekend.
According to the department head, the personal details recorded by the public order office on Saturday showed that 60 to 70 percent of visitors to the old town came from the surrounding area. The restrictions that the city now wants to impose are intended to send a signal that a trip to the old town is not currently desired. A decision will be made early next week whether the rules will continue to apply.
