Leopoldina recommends nationwide shutdown

March 22nd, 2020 | by

The National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, to which RWTH scientists also belong, has published an ad-hoc statement on health policy options for action against the further spread of coronaviris in Germany. This announcement, by an interdisciplinary working group of the Leopoldina, states that a Germany-wide temporary “shutdown” (approx. 3 weeks) with consequent spatial distance is recommendable from a scientific point of view at this time. Essential and health-preserving activities must remain possible.
