The constantly increasing corona infections brought the red-green Senate to a special meeting on Friday. The goal: Consultations on further protective measures in order to curb the increase in new infections.

Already on Thursday evening, Social Senator Melanie Leonhard (43, SPD) announced that the number of people who may come together for private celebrations in their own living space would be limited.

After Hamburg exceeded the important warning level of 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days in the course of the week, stricter rules will now also have to apply in the Hanseatic city.

This includes, among other things, that only a maximum of ten people are allowed to stay in private rooms during celebrations. A curfew in the catering industry has been in effect in Hamburg since last Saturday.
