How many people have been infected in the Corona hotspot in Mamming? Two companies are now concerned. The district now wishes to present the results of the serial tests.
Mamming (dpa / lby) – After the Corona outbreak at two companies in Mamming, Lower Bavaria, the district wants to present the results of serial tests of all seasonal workers on Sunday. “The very latest tests are currently being evaluated,” said Dingolfing-Landau district office spokesperson Bettina Huber. The district administrator, Werner Bumeder, then wants to inform about the ongoing Corona events in the Dingolfing-Landau district.
Authorities had tested all seasonal workers on the 26 farms in the district. During serial testing, authorities on Saturday discovered 27 people infected with the crown at a second company. They and their contact persons were immediately separated from those who tested negative and isolated in other accommodation. No infections were found in 23 farms. The results of a last operation are still pending.
For the citizens of the district, there is no increased risk of infection, Huber said. The district suspects that those affected were infected by farm workers at the nearby market garden in Mamming town, which has a population of around 3,340, where a corona outbreak first occurred.
As of Friday evening, 232 farm workers were infected with the corona virus. 231 tested negative. The operation is a large vegetable farm that grows strawberries, cucumbers, cabbage and beets. The second factory produces canned vegetables and sauerkraut.
Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) expressed concern on Sunday about the growing number of cases in Germany. “We have to expect Corona to come back to us with force,” Söder said on Twitter. This is not the time for further relaxation or naive recklessness.
The corona outbreak in Mamming falls in the middle of the holiday season. Some federal states have therefore imposed travel restrictions on people in the Dingolfing-Landau district. These are only allowed to travel over large parts of the German coast, Rhineland-Palatinate, Brandenburg and the Saar with restrictions.
