Spahn to Coronavirus: Possible little touch the face

NOTE: This post is sent without the speaker’s text. O-TON Jens Spahn (CDU), Minister of health: “We look with concern on the spread of the Corona Virus in the North of Italy. There are already more than 160 Infected and five deaths. The chains of Infection are partially understood. The Corona epidemic has arrived as an epidemic in Europe. And therefore we must expect that they can also spread into Germany. It is important to me as a message to the citizens in Germany: Everyone can make a contribution to wash his own protection and for the protection of the fellow citizens by hands, by coughing hygiene, by influenza vaccination in order to avoid also there the number of avoidable infections in fact. And – maybe it sounds banal, but it also helps to be as little as possible in the face, because the question can be actually the stove is also a great infection. I am still firmly convinced that we are best prepared as possible and have us prepared. The German health care system is one of the best in the world. Doctors and nurses and all other healthcare professionals, cope with each year, flu outbreaks, the health care at least comparable challenges. We are doing a lot to support vaccine development, also in close cooperation with our partner countries, other European countries, which are committed, but also international commitment, the European Commission. But the truth is, and I find that one must always say to a vaccine development takes time.”
