    Yes, once the symptoms show, quarantine is only for seven days as in a mild case that's how long it normally takes and that's how long before it becomes no longer contagious.

    Many reasons.
    1. we have more test done so can find and isolate a person and who they were in contact with quicker
    2. Older people are staying at home for the most part so younger ages have been affected more, average age is 46
    3. We have more beds with ventilator, 25.000 compared to 4,000 in UK, 6,000 in Spain/Italy. This is the reason we can take extra patients
    4. Our healthcare system is really good. If you feel you have covid you are tested and then sent a questionnaire to see how you are doing everyday. If conditions get worse, you are brought straight to hospital.
    5. And finally, and I cannot stress this enough, the germans follow the rule. Wash your hand, stay 2m apart and don't panic. Our leader have not only told us to do this but actually do it themselves. Since the "lockdown" the bundestag has been mostly empty and only Merkel was on the stage by herself, unlike Trump who surrounded himself
