Before the vote in the Bundestag and Bundesrat next week, the criticism of the planned nationwide emergency brake to contain the corona pandemic does not stop. With the nationwide emergency brake, the federal government wants to take over extensive competencies in pandemic control from the federal states for the first time in the pandemic. In addition to a nightly curfew from 21 p.m. to 5 a.m., it also provides for shop closings. The limit for this should be a seven-day incidence of 100 per 100.000 inhabitants. But it is precisely the curfews that are causing criticism in the countries. Saarland's Prime Minister Tobias Hans (CDU) called the planned amendment to the Infection Protection Act on Saturday "completely uncreative". Hesse's head of government Volker Bouffier (CDU) warned of constitutional problems. The law is to be passed on Wednesday in the Bundestag and on Thursday in the Bundesrat.
