  • German Worst-hit district Heinsberg to become coronavirus ‘laboratory’

    March 31 2020

    Over the coming weeks the district will be used by leading virologists and a team of 40 medical students as a sort of laboratory for studying the virus. The “Covid-19 case cluster study”, launched on Tuesday morning, will follow 1,000 people who have been chosen because they are representative of the German population as a whole.

      One thing is made clear right from the start: There will be no news about the results of the study in the Heinsberg district. It is too dangerous, explains virologist Hendrik Streeck in the video conference with press representatives on Tuesday, to prematurely announce things that may need to be revised later. “Science takes time. It cannot be driven, ”he said. One cannot yet hope for knowledge from the study commissioned by the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia. Streeck announced more about the course of the study and the methodology on Tuesday...

        The cluster effect: how social gatherings were rocket fuel for coronavirus


        The carnival session in Gangelt is now drawing close attention from scientists from around the world: seven people who walked out of the event later tested positive for the virus. A 47-year-old man who performed in the “male ballet” at the Gangelt carnival was the first person in Germany admitted to intensive care with the infection.

        Gangelt is in the Heinsberg district, which is home to 42,000 people and has since had 1,442 infections and 43 fatalities, more than any other administrative district in the country.

        Each of the countries most heavily hit by the pandemic has reported similar stories of social, cultural or religious gatherings where large numbers spent numerous hours in close company – holding hands, kissing, sharing drinks from the same glass – which then turbo-charged the spread of the pandemic.

              Interview with Professor Hendrik Streeck ... google translation

              Streeck: We located the participants in the (carnival) session and invited them for an interview and blood tests. We ask where they sat, what they drank and with whom they spoke, how often they went to the toilet and which dance group they participated in. This is the only way we can understand which path the virus has taken.
