big live events such as concepts to see what hygiene concepts need to be in place for those things to happen but if you talk about things where people roam around freely and say take a. trade for example there's just no way that they can guarantee that people don't get into close contact and that is considered too risky so that remains banned until the end of the woods knew as well as the johnson was talking about and electronic entry system what can you tell us about that electronic entry system will make it easier for the authorities to trace people that will have to be filled in if people return into germany from their journeys abroad because of course currently we have a system where people have to fill in a full handwritten form that will set applies to restaurants for example but nobody's going to stop you if you put in mickey mouse there's no people no person there who's going to make so that young already making us you know brown thomas and
