The Frankfurt train station neighbourhood: aid and Repression

Uto fix m the abuses in the Frankfurt station district, the view of health head of Department Stefan Majer (Green) is a Combination of drugs and repressive measures. The Situation in the district is tense and has deteriorated, so it is rated for both Majer and regulatory Affairs, Markus Frank (CDU). Garbage, pollution, open drug use and trafficking, as well as part of the aggressive behavior of homeless people and drug addicts were also a result of the Corona-crisis. “In the station district, much less people in the last few weeks, due to the action rules for the containment of Coronavirus, which are not dependent to the circles of drug dealers, drugs, or homeless,” said Frank at the request of the F. A. Z.. in Front of Corona there had been a corrective of local residents, tourists and business people, had now ceased to exist. “The misery in this quarter occurs in the last few weeks, very much stronger than otherwise in appearance.”

Head of Majer, which is also the drug responsible, the similar. “For the drug addicts, who permanently reside in the station district, this is the place for you, your home, the security that you and you’re holding on to just out of fear of the pandemic. During the lock downs new open spaces in the railway station district opened, which are used by different groups now.“ In addition, since printing rooms and meeting places had to reduce their offer, instead of a more open consumer. “As a Department head, I support you therefore enforce specifically the city and state police, if the for all the citizens of applicable rules in the public space. In the Frankfurt drug policy assistance and Repression must work together,“ said Majer, the F. A. Z..

The “Frankfurt way” to hold

Now is controlled in the station district, according to Frank-intensive. The city is a set for the quarter-highlighted the head of the Department. He sees a solution for the problems in the Department of cross-work through the coordinator of the helping as an interface between the various Offices and authorities, “for example, if an advertising pillar must be added, which has proved to be popular as a drug depot,” as Frank said. In addition, the streets would be cleaned on a regular basis, from the budget there is funding. Also lighting and video surveillance would steadily improved. Furthermore, the city of Munich and Zurich, for advice in order to gather impetus for dealing with the drug addicts.

The “Frankfurt way” had not failed, because both Department heads are in agreement. Frankfurt has succeeded to reduce contrary to the Trend in almost all other cities, the number of drug – related deaths to the level of the mid – nineties, with up to 150 dead in the year to 20 to 30 Dead. This way you will go further, said Majer: “We will expand the low-threshold Substitution close to the station.” Also the heroin-assisted treatment should be expanded. To isolate the drug addicts in a consumer area, however, is inhumane.

Only the osthessische circle and the neighboring city of Frankfurt in a loosening of the important value of a two-digit number. Hersfeld-Rotenburg is still suffering from a small wave of Infection among employees of Amazon. About three dozen employees is in the private circle with Covid-19.

Only the circles of bird mountain and the Waldeck-Frankenberg reported less Infected. However, 15 of the 187 have been registered in the past seven days. The value leads to the comparatively high Incidence.

Critically it would, however, only when you Reach 50, because in this case, the authorities could take it back loose again, as outbreaks happen in North Rhine-Westphalia in the two counties due to mass Corona-the big butcher Tönnies. And to overwrite this brand, would need to Offenbach reports more than 65 new cases within a week, in Frankfurt even more than 350. Last it there were only 44. For five circles, and Wiesbaden is a Zero in the Seven-days-incidence of impact, as reported to the Ministry of social Affairs recently.

The RKI guess the number of Recovering only.

The RKI takes into account those cases, which were submitted on the day of 0.00. “For the presentation of new cases reported per day in the reporting date – the date on which the local health Department obtains knowledge about the case and him and electronically recorded,” reads the website of the Institute. Between the notification by Doctors and laboratories to the health Department and the Transfer of the cases to the competent state authorities and the RKI for a few days could pass. In such cases, the speech is by Reporting delays.

All districts and independent cities in Hesse far from “50”

I.n Hesse, 9012 coronavirus infections have become known since the beginning of the records in early March. This results from the daily bulletin of the Hessian Ministry of Social Affairs, since it went online around 5 p.m. The country has spoken of 20 new cases since Sunday. They correspond to an increase of 0.2 percent.

Thorsten Winter

Business editor and internet coordinator in the Rhein-Main-Zeitung.

The mark 50, which is important for a possible withdrawal of loosening in the Corona cases with less than 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days, does not even come close to an independent city in Hesse or a district, according to the bulletin. The Odenwald has the worst value at 26, the lowest and therefore the best at Vogelsberg. From there, no new infection has been reported within a week for several days. The district of Hersfeld-Rotenburg is doing almost as well.

Darmstadt and Kassel have the lowest so-called incidence among the cities with 6 each. Frankfurt comes in at eight, Offenbach at 19. However, there are currently 1363 infections in total for Frankfurt, but only 131 for the neighboring city.

The number 9012 is also in the daily report of the Robert Koch Institute. The facility, called RKI, is the leader in disease control in Germany. Compared to Sunday, 14 new cases have been reported to the RKI, with the status at 0.00 o’clock. The plus corresponds to an increase of a good 0.1 percent. According to the RKI and the Ministry of Social Affairs, a victim has been added in connection with the pandemic, so the deaths add up to 412.

The possible delay in reporting should be considered. Especially on weekends, it can happen that not all health authorities in Hesse report their new cases to the responsible Hessian State Examination and Investigation Office in Health Care and the Robert Koch Institute. According to the RKI, approximately 7,600 patients are of hers Infection has since recovered; 100 more than on Sunday. This means that there are 18.4 recovered people per corona victim.

Estimated number of people recovered

As the RKI announced on request, it does not officially collect data on the number of people who have recovered. The survey was also not provided for by law. “However, at least in the cases in which most of the information was determined and which had no severe symptoms and were not admitted to a hospital, it can be assumed that they will have recovered after 14 days at the latest,” says Berlin . The RKI estimates the number of those recovered.

The Ministry of Social Affairs bulletin came out about three hours later than expected. It is usually published around 2 p.m. At the beginning of the week, however, technical difficulties delayed the publication, as a spokeswoman for the Ministry of the F.A.Z. said.

The bulletin is based on figures that are electronically available to the Hesse State Examination and Examination Office in the health care sector by 10:30 a.m. The spokeswoman could not say what was particularly difficult at the beginning of the week.

The Hessian Ministry of Social Affairs publishes a detailed overview of the development of corona every day, broken down by district and urban district. It refers to figures from the Robert Koch Institute and the Hesse State Examination and Investigation Office in Health Care at the Gießen Regional Office, to which the health authorities must report the new cases.

So far, the state office has somewhat newer figures than the RKI. However, about three weeks ago it announced that it would take over a new RKI evaluation tool. As a result, there should be no major discrepancies in the data. But that doesn’t work yet, especially since a readout error can also occur, like last week.

When asked, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Social Affairs of the F.A.Z. said that there was a more complex technical problem behind it. Put simply, two different databases should have been merged, but this did not work in the Wetterau case. Although the district publishes its corona development every day, the numbers of several days were obviously not taken into account on the reporting route, for the reason mentioned.
