The doctor’s office is closed because the doctor has a crown. The kindergarten is in degraded mode again – too many teachers are sick. The fire brigade anniversary party has been canceled to prevent more firefighters from getting infected. A transport company from Cologne has to temporarily stop some bus lines due to too many sick drivers. At the local rail operator Metronom, so many drivers and staff at the Celle control center are positive that the commuter trains are being canceled. Hospital operations are postponed. this Rolling stones cancel shows because Mick Jagger has been infected. Chaos reigns at the airport.
