If that is true, then Minister of Health Anschober is “ready to resign”. FPÖ chief Norbert Hofer already brought heavy guns into position yesterday.
Health minister Rudi Anschober (Greens) and his ministry were confronted with unpleasant accusations in the Ischgl case: the ministry had positive corona from several European countries via the EU’s early warning and response system (EWRS). Tests with returnees from Ischgl or other Tyrolean ski resorts have been reported. However, this information was not passed on to the responsible Tyrolean authorities, according to Herbert Forster, the Tyrolean regional office director.
Corona risk area
Specifically, cases between 9 and 13 March were reported to the ministry via EWRS systems from Germany, Croatia, Great Britain, the Netherlands and Denmark. In the first days of March, Ischgl had already achieved the status of a corona risk area in some EU countries, but also in Iceland.
In a conversation with the OÖNachrichten, Anschober now contradicts the criticism that his department has withheld important information from the Tyrolean authorities. “We have checked thousands of urgent reports in the EWRS. All international information relevant to the work of the Tyrolean authorities has been transmitted to the Tyrolean authorities,” Anschober says.
Between March 3 and 14, there were a total of 21 such reports from Belgium, Germany, Croatia, Great Britain, the Netherlands and Denmark with specific data and information on confirmed Covid 19 cases or via contact persons on confirmed Covid 19 cases , which were forwarded to the places in Tirol.
Only cases from the EWRS were not forwarded in which it was impossible to determine contact persons due to missing personal or residence data. These reports in the EWRS are used to get an overview of the epidemiological situation in a country, according to the ministry.
According to the ministry, the local epidemiological reporting system (EMS) also shows that the responsible Tyrolean district administrative authorities were already aware of 150 confirmed Covid 19 cases by March 12. The number then increased by a further 60 cases to 210 within a day. At that time, people from more than 25 nations were already affected and tested positive in Tyrol.
The Corona crisis management of the Tyrolean authorities is to be examined by an expert commission set up by the state parliament. The public prosecutor is also investigating.
