template: important points unresolved ahead of bund-lander round

In the country discussions on measures to counter the dramatic development of the corona, there is still no agreement on important points shortly before the meeting with chancellor angela merkel (CDU), who is scheduled for this afternoon.

It is still unclear, for example, at what hospitalization rate there should be access restrictions for the unvaccinated or compulsory testing for the vaccinated and recovered (2G plus). This is the result of a draft resolution made available to the deutsche presse-agentur on thursday, which was sent to the other states by north rhine-westphalia during the night following consultations between the heads of state on wednesday evening. North rhine-westphalia currently holds the presidency of the conference of minister presidents.

The head of the chancellor’s office, helge braun (CDU), also took part in the discussions on wednesday evening. As a matter of principle, the draft resolution now on the table is merely a basis for discussion. As in the previous rounds of the minister-presidents’ conference with merkel, final agreement will not be reached until the very end. On thursday, it was not clear how long the discussions, which began in the early afternoon, would last.

After a 284-day break, non-stop ice hockey in the future

Months of complaining and dithering in the german ice hockey league are over. More than nine months after the season was cancelled due to the corona crisis, the DEL season will start this year after all.

On 17. December – 284 days after the last DEL game so far in march – the opening game of a shortened season is to be played with a different schedule and full of uncertainties. "We know that there are still a lot of uncertainties, we will certainly have to improvise," said DEL general manager gernot tripcke after the decisive club switch, but was visibly relieved: "we all feel very, very comfortable. We’re coming into the season late, but hopefully all the better for it."

The mode is, however, necessarily habit-forming for most fans, who are used to 52 main-round game days and subsequent playoffs up to the championship cure. Apart from the fact that they won’t be able to go to the stadiums anyway and will have to rely on a magentasport subscription, the telekom platform, like the NHL, offers "non-stop field hockey" with up to three games a day until mid-march.
