Nobody knows exactly where this current coronavirus situation is going to end up, but looking at other countries we are not too optimistic.
The goal of all these extreme sanctions is to reduce the number of people who become severely sick all at once. It is a fact, that we most probably don’t have enough beds for intensive care. That means (in the worst case): many people might die because there are no medical capacities. Therefore it is better to slow down the spread of the virus.
Everyone of us has relatives or knows people who are part of the so-called high-risk group. Those might be older people or some with chronic diseases (also children! ), or maybe the best friend – because in rare cases also younger people become sick.
At the moment many people are working in the front line such as doctors, nursing staff, bus drivers etc., doing the best they can to save lives and risking their own health. Therefore in our opinion it is not justifiable to proceed as if nothing happened (As for example going to the cinema or even going on parties.) It doesn’t hurt anyone to restrict yourself a little bit in the personal freedom to do your part.
It’s not about black or white, it’s not about being right in the long term. It’s about saving lives where possible and being part of the solution.
For this reason we have decided to pause the shipping of any articles from now on. Nevertheless you can still place orders or contact us for questions via e-mail. ! —> But please note that all orders, which were placed after March 15th, 2020, will be sent out at a later point of time as soon as the situation has improved!
We will inform you immediately about the resumption of our shop activities here and via Facebook.
Thank you for your understanding ♥ Stay healthy!
