  1. I read the original article in german and there is nothing about
    these points in the article.

    They can levy fines but you just go to court and everything is thrown out.

    1. You are correct that the article which Sachetti links to does not list the measures which he reports, but as the news articles about this are not giving the actual text of the law, but are specifying only some of the measures and powers it grants the federal government in Germany, it is not clear that he is incorrect. So if anyone can find the actual text of the new law, I would appreciate they share a link to it here in the comments.

  2. The following are extracts from articles from the German Law Firm Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte.
    See what it says about human dignity as inviolable and inalienable?!

    ‘Breaking quarantine rules can result in fines of up to €25,000 or even 5 years in prison. Breaking quarantine can legally be considered as bodily injury or attempted bodily harm which accounts for the strict rules around it. These rules have been enforced up to now with over 35,000 people receiving fines for various breaches of quarantine and other corona rules. In Hamburg alone, close to €1,000,000 in fines have been handed out.’

    ‘Risk areas in Germany refers to areas where there are 50 or more new infections per 100.000 inhabitants within a week. If you are living in such a risk area it is advised not to travel to other areas, however if you do travel you may face difficulties in booking hotels / hostels and other forms of accommodation. The rules on this matter depends on the rules of individual cities and areas.’

    ‘The German Constitution recognises human dignity as inviolable and inalienable (§ 1 Grundgesetz), however the state recognises that what is good for the many must sometimes come before that of the individual. Quarantine is allowed for under German law through § 30 Infection Protection Act (IfSG) as a means of preventing infectious diseases from spreading.’

    ‘the quarantine period is 14 days. As stated above this quarantine order can be given regardless of whether a person is showing symptoms. Placing a person in quarantine can occur if a person has been in contact with an infected individual.’

    ‘…even going out shopping is deemed to be breaking quarantine. The government is following the recommendations of the Robert-Koch Institut in following these restrictions.’

    ‘Just as German law legislates for the legality of quarantine it also legislates for breaking quarantine. Breaking quarantine and the legal penalties involved can be found under § 75 (1) Infection Protection Act (IfSG). Under this provision, a person found breaking quarantine can face a fine or a prison sentence. The prison sentence in question can be up to 2 years whereas the fine is dependent on the monthly income of the person. If a person has been found to have intentionally broken the quarantine order and spread the virus then they can face up to a five year prison sentence under § 74 Infection Protection Act (IFSG).’

    ‘…breaking quarantine to go to a public place, may have serious criminal law consequences as mentioned above. Committing criminal actions is a legitimate grounds for an employer to dismiss an employee without notice.’

    ‘….breaking such curfews / lock downs can also lead to charges and potential fines and prison sentences under § 75 Infection Protection Act (IfSG).

    At the moment there are major restrictions already in place such as bans on public gatherings of more than two people.’

    ‘….it is the responsibility of the local health authorities on what action they should take. Such steps can include performing a medical exam, screening and placing the person in quarantine on arrival in Germany. The measures taken should be per the Protection Against Infection Act (Infektionsschutzgesetz, IfSG).’

  3. ‘The “emergency brake” would lead to a uniform set of rules entailing the closure of stores, cultural and sports facilities, limits on personal contacts, and nighttime curfews.

    Merkel faces uphill battle to pass bill
    Passing the bill is likely to be an uphill battle for Merkel, with state governments reluctant to cede authority over healthcare to the federal administration.

    Her speech in parliament was interrupted by heckling from legislators belonging to the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which has been vocally and persistently opposed to COVID-19 lockdowns.

    Merkel has also faced criticism from within her own conservative bloc, which opinion polls suggest will suffer their worst ever result in an upcoming September national election.

    The proposed change to the Infection Protection Act must be approved by the lower house of parliament and the state-run upper house.

    The lower house is expected to vote on the bill next week, with the upper house to follow.

    AfD voices opposition
    Merkel acknowledged that the new powers were no bulletproof solution to the pandemic, which she said could only be defeated with vaccinations.

    However, she called for coordination across various levels of government to limit the spread of the more transmissible coronavirus strain, known as the Kent or UK variant, sweeping across Germany.

    “There is no way around it. We need to stop this third wave of the pandemic,” she said.

    “And to achieve this we need to better combine the strengths of the federal, state and local governments than we have been.”..’

    ‘….“The proposed amendments of the Infection Protection Act are an alarming document of an authoritarian state,” AfD parliamentary leader Alice Weidel said on Friday. “This relapse into the authoritarian demon is coming from the chancellery and you, Madame Chancellor.”….’ SOURCE: NEWS AGENCIES https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/4/16/germanys-merkel-pushes-for-widening-of-powers-amid
