If cases here are rising under present stricter conditions why is the Government prepared to play roulette with lives of residents who live and work here all year round and allow a vast number of Germans where Covid is rife, to come in for a few days over Easter. This makes no sense, neither morally or economically. Summer is far more important for the hospitality trade and the Government simply needs to support them a while longer.

Cases are rising following the reopening of restaurants and bars...Germans are allowed to come for Easter despite a big rise in cases in is clear that whoever is making decisions does not know what they are doing. The post-Easter situation will be worse than the post-Christmas. Until the majority of the population is vaccinated it is unconceivable to reopen tourism.
