#Germany #China #5G #Huawei

In contrast to countries like Great Britain, Germany does not exclude the Chinese with 5G across the board. But now the cabinet has agreed on stricter rules for foreign network equipment suppliers.
The federal government has been arguing for two years, now there is a draft law, the cabinet is supposed to get it underway on Wednesday. In contrast to countries like Great Britain and Sweden, Germany does not exclude Chinese companies across the board.
But Berlin, too, subjects the use of companies to strict rules. This is a problem for the German network operators: they have made themselves heavily dependent on #Huawei over the past few years. In the radio network of Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica,
around half of all components usually come from Huawei. With the new 5G cellular standard, data can be transmitted in real time. This opens up new opportunities for industry, but also increases the risk of cyber attacks. The focus on security is correspondingly large.
The draft of a “Second Law to Increase the Security of Information Technology Systems” therefore now uses a two-stage test procedure. In addition to an examination of the technology, there should also be a political assessment of the trustworthiness of manufacturers.
This rule is de facto directed against countries like China, which have massively expanded state access to technology companies. So far, the dominant suppliers Huawei, Ericsson (Sweden) and Nokia (Finland) have sold complete cellular networks.
Their components such as antennas and computing stations are coordinated with one another, but not compatible with those of the competition. An anti Huawei law would also not be possible under German law.
But the federal government can legally prohibit isolated components of a supplier. However, it is precisely this possibility of prohibition that creates great uncertainty for network operators. They want to push the expansion of 5G with power.
Deutsche Telekom alone has announced that it intends to supply two thirds of the German population with 5G by the end of the year. To do this, it relies heavily on technology from Huawei. Whether she can still implement ther plans is completely open.
And despite this it could leade to further increase of tensions with the USA wich trys to push other countries not to use Huawei for there construction of 5G networks, so the US made some agreements with non very rich countries to ban Huawei for the 5G network construction.

Due to the ongoing trade dispute between Australia and China and the Sars-CoV 19 pandemic, a group of Indian sailors who have been stranded in Chinese territorial waters
have called for a "intervention" from the Indian government. Indian sailors make up a sizeable proportion of the world's merchant navy crews, as documented by Maritime Union of India (MUI). "We have been stuck here for a year now. We can't get medical treatment, we can't go out.
Our supplies are already running out," Gaurav Singh, a second officer aboard MV Anastasia, says in a video put up by Change.Org on Wednesday.

Corona tests for travelers returning from risk areas with high numbers of infections abroad are no longer free as of today. The entitlement introduced in the summer has expired.
So far, vacationers have been able to get tested for free in order to shorten the mandatory quarantine when they return to Germany. Now the regulations are being tightened further.
Anyone who makes an "avoidable trip" to risk areas will no longer receive compensation for loss of earnings for the time of the quarantine. Exceptions are "exceptional circumstances" such as the birth of one's own children or the death of close relatives.
