Corona-dead become more

Corona-dead become more

In the coming weeks, significantly more people will die in connection with a corona infection than in previous weeks, according to a study.

Model calculations showed that the number of deaths from covid-19 in germany was already allowed to increase to 500 to 800 per week at the beginning of november, said viola priesemann, head of a research group at the max planck institute for dynamics and self-organization in gottingen. The increase may be even more pronounced.

The relatively low number of deaths so far is due to the fact that until the end of september, people under the age of 60 had been infected with the sars-cov-2 virus, the scientists around priesemann explain. Since then, the number of reported infections has also risen among people over 60. With a time lag of about two weeks, this would also lead to an increase in the death rate. Scientists from numerous german research institutions participated in the study.

Right to a home office: these are the plans for the fall

Hubertus heil wants to enshrine the right to work from home in law and present a law by the autumn. Everyone who wants to, and whose workplace allows it, should be able to work in a home office – even when the corona pandemic is over again.

"I am working on a new law for a right to home office, which i will present by fall. Everyone who wants to, and whose workplace allows it, should be able to work in a home office – even when the corona pandemic is over again", heil told the "bild am sonntag" newspaper. Employees should then be allowed to switch completely to home office or even work from home only one or two days a week.

The proposal by the federal minister of labor and social affairs has met with criticism

The chairman of the employees’ group of the union faction in the bundestag, uwe schummer, rejects plans by federal labor minister hubertus heil (SPD) for a right to a home office. "We also want to demand and strengthen home work," schummer told the "neue osnabrucker zeitung" (tuesday).

Ludwig weib, managing director of milchwerke oberfranken west, was able to present this summary to suppliers and members at the general meeting.

After all, the company’s sales have risen since it was founded from 56.8 million euros in 1992 to 269.8 million now.

sharon stone on donald trump:

US actress sharon stone (62) has sharply criticized donald trump for his politics. "I am not proud of our president. I am ashamed that he holds this sacred office," stone told the german press agency. Such an important position must be filled with seriousness and reverence.

For the german chancellor, however, the hollywood star ("basic instinct," "casino") has only words of praise. "Mrs. Merkel i find amazing and crude. I appreciate them deeply. It makes a lot of difference that you can look up to someone you respect."

U.S. Hit hardest by corona crisis. Stone also sees the announcement of international treaties as a mistake, as she said: "the people here just hope that the world understands: we want you back. We are a nation that loves the rest of the world. We believe in the world community – we are one."
