After a corona outbreak in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria's Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) is calling for consequences for the alleged perpetrator.

"Should it be confirmed that the woman consciously ignored the quarantine despite clear corona symptoms, she must expect a severe fine," said Herrmann to the

Munich-based Merkur


"Against such recklessness, a clear signal and a warning example should be set," said the Interior Minister.

Anyone who "violates the rules in this particular pandemic situation and deliberately puts others in danger" must expect "sensitive sanctions".

The district office assumes that the outbreak is due to a so-called super spreader.

The 26-year-old is said to have wandered through various bars in the city and infected several people.

According to the authority, she had already shown symptoms on the pub crawl.

The result of a corona test was still pending at this point in time.

According to the district office, the woman had recently returned from a vacation in Greece.

Whether she was infected on the trip or afterwards in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is unclear.

In Bavaria, violations of quarantine requirements can result in a fine of up to 2,000 euros.
