"DER TOD IST EIN MEISTER AUS DEUTSCHLAND"


DO NOT DIE

"Death is a master from Germany" is a famous phrase after World War Two almost every German knows. Now it seems death is making a detour around Germany. Officially (what we call in Germany Öffentlich/Rechtlich) yesterday they reported about 5.000 infected and only 12 deaths. The National Public Radio (NPR) in the United States is writing today about 4.000 cases and more then 700 deaths.

"Truth is the first victim of war" is another phrase almost every German knows. It seems to me there is not only a crisis but a war of information. Because a virus does not know any border and also no detour. "People are capable of accepting the truth" - a last phrase by Ingeborg Bachmann almost every German knows could help us now.
