April 23rd, the president of the German Olympic Committee, Alphonse Holmann, told the media that the German sports community was suffering greatly because of the restrictions imposed by the pandemic prevention measures on sports activities.
“A number of analyses have shown that sports losses across the country have reached billions of euros,” he said. ”
According to Holman, more and more sports club staff have been forced to leave, and the departure of many sponsors has cost the club dearly: “Two-thirds of our member organizations are unsure whether they will be able to continue to operate steadily this year.” He called for a more differentiated open-door sports policy, especially for contactless outdoor sports.
In view of Germany has passed a new Law on the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases, including curfews, including the national unified “emergency brake” system will come into force from the 24th.
Holman worries about the serious impact of persistent restrictions on German health: “Never before have our children lived such an unhealthy, unsportsmanlike life as they have in the past 12 months. In the long run, this will have serious consequences.”
