Hanover (dpa / lni) - Shortly before the deliberations on possible tightening of the lockdown in the corona pandemic, the Greens in Lower Saxony called for a "comprehensible long-term strategy".

The people expected "right now coherent and effective measures and their equally consistent implementation," said the parliamentary group leader Julia Willie Hamburg on Sunday.

"Unfortunately, the state government of Prime Minister Weil still owes this to this day."

For a long-term strategy instead of outdated regulations after a short time, Prime Minister Stephan Weil (SPD) not only has to campaign in the federal government, but also define it for the state - "without this perspective and only with perseverance appeals we will soon run out of breath".

In view of the tense situation, Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the heads of government of the federal states have brought their deliberations, originally planned for January 25, forward to next Tuesday by just under a week.

Hamburg emphasized that it was high time to do more to protect against corona infections in the working world.

According to the Greens in the country, the lockdown measures are having too little effect in Germany: while private life is regulated down to the smallest detail, the world of work remains outside.

A right to mobile working is necessary and, where this cannot be implemented, clear hygiene rules are required.

In the case of restrictions on private contacts, the controversial plus-one rule must be checked, at least for families.


The parliamentary group leader also stated: "We urgently need a new test strategy, an additional nationwide effort to protect against infection in our schools as well as in trains, buses and trains and finally a step model of restrictions based on the number of infections."

These proposals will also be discussed on Monday (10:00 a.m.) at a special meeting of the Landtag's social committee.
