Why the shutdown?
We’re sure that minimizing social contact is crucial at this point to reduce forthcoming pressure on our public health system and ICU’s, and we strongly encourage everyone to take similar measures.
Our recommendation is to stay at home as much as possible, and to work from home if you can. Avoid public transport and gatherings and stop going out to bars, clubs and parties.
To suspend our live broadcasts was not an easy decision, but we treat this as a matter of community responsibility. Social distancing seems to be key at this point and will have a strong positive impact in the coming weeks when cases exponentially materialize in Germany and elsewhere.
