The German hospitals are in a tense calm. Doctors believe that the number of infections will increase considerably and that the system may reach its limits. The hospitals are preparing for this emergency as best they can. This probably also includes the consideration that not all seriously ill patients could possibly be treated equally.

So that horror scenarios such as those described in Spanish and Italian clinics do not occur in Germany, public life has been largely standing still for days. The number of infections should not increase so much that the health system collapses. No doctor should be forced to make decisions about life and death because the medical resources are insufficient. That is the goal of this unprecedented effort by society as a whole.

Of course, politicians must already think about what a return to normal could look like. This debate is currently also interspersed with voices urging an end to the restrictions soon, because the economic consequences seem enormous to them. Often you can see your own interests behind it. Fortunately, these demands are not capable of a majority. Given the expected course of the epidemic, they appear to be out of date.
