Clara, that is good to hear.clara wrote: ↑Tue Mar 24, 2020 5:34 pmI am glad to see a lot of solidarity in Germany in these days. 95% of the Germans agree with what has been ordered from the gvt, only 3% are against it. 2% probably don't know what to think of the rules. Almost everywhere groups have been formed willing to help those who need it without risking to spread the virus.
Although we are probably better equipped as to medical supply than many other countries, the industry is trying to help also. Who in former days sewed underwear is now sewing masks or coats, who produced dust masks is producing medical masks for hospitals (don't ask me about the difference). Our vehicle industry will produce parts of respirators for the hospitals instead of vehicles - who is interested in buying a car just now? Those who have produced hard liquor are now producing disinfectants.
And a bit more of even European solidarity: Several of the German states are taking care of French, Italian and Austrian corona patients as they still have some ICU beds left.
Here in Finland, the authorities decided to open the emergency supplies warehouse to make sure that all healthcare workers have enough masks and other protective gear... For us common citizens, no masks available at any pharmacy.
All our restaurants and bars are officially closed. It is still possible to order food for takeaway, which helps to keep some businesses afloat.
