Fighting COVID 19

In reaction to the exponentially growing numbers of COVID-19 infections worldwide, events are cancelled, bars, restaurants and borders closed and even whole cities or regions quarantined. In this online symposium, at the request of the state government of Berlin, Verfassungsblog presents comparative country reports outlining the legal basis and the scope of the protective measures taken against the spread of the virus. A particular focus is put on supportive mechanisms for businesses and employees who are directly affected by those measures.
