Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) rejects a state-wide regulation as in Bavaria. In Bavaria, the nationwide incidence value is also over 200, he said on Sunday. "We consider contact restrictions to be the more correct means."
The Lippe and Düren districts had already agreed with the state on night exit restrictions at the end of last week. They were already in effect there on the weekend.
After the districts of Düren and Lippe, the city of Solingen has also imposed a nightly exit restriction due to the high number of corona infections. It will apply from Wednesday between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. throughout the city, the administration announced on Tuesday evening. During this time, citizens are only allowed to stay outside their own home in exceptional cases, such as voluntary work with aid organizations, medical needs or the necessary care for animals. Anyone who is found on the street during this period for no good reason is said to face a fine of up to 300 euros.
On Christmas Eve, the Christmas holidays and New Year’s Eve, the exit restriction only applies from 1:00 a.m. It is limited to January 10th. The first controls by the municipal security service and the police are planned for Thursday evening. The city pointed out that the number of new infections per 100,000 residents within seven days was well above the 200 mark. Solingen is one of the corona hotspots with an extreme infection situation in Germany, in which the many measures already taken in recent weeks have not led to a decrease in the number of infections. The situation in the hospitals is coming to a head, the infection rate in the old people’s facilities is worrying.
According to the city, there has been a corona outbreak in two old people’s homes in Solingen. A total of 47 seniors and 21 employees are infected with the virus. A city spokeswoman said in the evening that two of the affected home residents, both over 70 years of age, died on Monday. Measures have been coordinated with the home supervisory authority and the facility management to break the chain of infection. The employees would wear protective equipment and only use it for specific areas. The residents are isolated and there is a ban on visits except for emergencies. With series tests, possible further cases in the facilities should be discovered quickly.
According to the city of Solingen, the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days is rising again. The value was currently given on Monday evening as 234.97 after 214.1 on Sunday. The high point so far was October 29 with 279.8 cases.

Whoever generates waste is also responsible for its correct disposal. The city of Wolfsburg therefore warns its population against illegal disposal offers. Because dubious leaflets are distributed over and over again.
The city of Wolfsburg has warned its citizens about illegal disposal offers for waste. Although there are quite proper collections of, for example, old clothes or scrap metals, there are always dubious leaflets in Wolfsburg’s mailboxes announcing illegal collections.
These dice slips are often written anonymously and usually call for scrap metals, old appliances and clothing to be handed in at short notice. The city said on Thursday the collection of problematic waste such as car batteries is also offered again and again.
Wolfsburg should be suspicious especially when the collection of used electrical appliances is announced. Here it is clearly regulated by law that these can only be disposed of by the public waste disposal authority or by taking them back to retailers.
Wolfsburg should help with persecution
Above all, nature in Wolfsburg suffers from illegal waste disposal, warned the city. Because old devices are often collected and cannibalized. What the collectors can no longer use ends up in the forest or in the fields.
The city therefore asks its citizens to help prosecute illegal scrap or electronic scrap collectors. If you discover a questionable leaflet in your mailbox, you should contact the lower waste management authority or the police immediately. In addition, citizens who observe scrap collectors should note down the license plate number of the respective vehicle and take photos in order to enable later follow-up.

The use of illegal disposal offers can also have expensive consequences for users.
