The infected couple is treated in a hospital in Düsseldorf. A spokesman for the Heinsberg region says in the Rheinische Post newspaper that it requires a huge amount of investigation to find out who the pair has been in contact with. “That is just like a puzzle with an infinite number of parts.”
As far as we know, the husband and wife were the first patients in North Rhine-Westphalia. People who have celebrated carnival with them are called upon to report. As a precaution, they have to be in quarantine for two weeks at home. Two other infections have now been reported in the Land.
