Chairman of the district association with its 6200 members remains the friendly member of the bundestag bernd rutzel. Delegates from the district of bad kissingen also attended the party conference, which was held under strict security conditions imposed by the health authorities because of the corona pandemic.
In addition to the elections and various reports, the party conference focused on an open debate on the topic of "experiences and lessons learned from the crisis – necessary changes". Sabine dittmar, health policy spokeswoman of the SPD parliamentary group in the bundestag since 2018, gave a detailed account of the corona pandemic. The goal of the mabnahmen was to do everything possible to prevent the health care system from being overburdened and collapsing.
Among other things, employees now have until 30. September, employees are entitled to care support allowance for 20 working days. So far it’s only been ten days. Dittmar emphasized that the rehabilitation clinics could be helped. This is particularly important in her electoral district of bad kissingen with its many clinics.
However, she also stressed that "it has become clear that reworking is necessary. It was previously inconceivable that the wattage sticks for smears or protective clothing would almost run out". More and well-paid staff is needed in the health departments so that it can be traced which corona infected people have had contact with other people.
The mabbach SPD member of parliament also called for "we finally need binding flat-rate collective agreements for good wages and working conditions in care". The care bonus of up to 1500 euros, which is paid to all those who work in elderly care, is not enough.
It is not possible to say at present whether a second wave of corona will hit germany. The infection business is currently stable "we will see what the fall brings with the school openings".
She also commented on the voluntary mass tests in the free state announced by minister president markus soder: "they are haphazard and make no sense".
