Love during Covid-19 Pandemic

Love during Covid-19 Pandemic

        Inga lives in Denmark and Karlsten lives in Germany. Despite the spread of the plague, they still adhere to the daily dating habit, across the border and at a safe distance.

With the worsening of the epidemic, the border between Germany and Denmark has been almost completely closed. Fortunately, the love between them will not be closed.

Every day, 85-year-old Inga Rasmussen and 89-year-old Karsten Tüchsen Hansen appear on time on both sides of the border, chat, have lunch, and share A few biscuits, a cup of coffee or a glass of local wine.

"To love!" The two would toast and drink together. Usually, they would hug and kiss in hand, but they could only distance themselves during the spread of the plague.

Red and white railings separate the two countries, and they sit on chairs on both sides of the border. Every day, they continue their date across the closed border.

Love without borders

Hansen lives in Süderlügum, Nordfriesland, Germany, and Inga lives in the Danish town of Gallehus. Every day, Hanson would ride his motorcycle, drive Inga, and split up on both sides of the border in Aventott.

On March 14, Denmark closed most of the border between the German state of Schleswig-Holstein. Two days later, Germany followed suit.

We are sad, but there is nothing we can do about it, Inga said

After closing, the couple could only tell their heartfelt over the phone, and as much as possible to meet each day, they did not want the plague , to infect their feelings.

Two years ago, the two happened to know each other by chance, and since March 13 last year, they have met each other.

If it weren't for the epidemic, I would always be with Karsten, Inga said. 

She said that when she was alone, the time would be extra long.

The couple hopes to meet at Easter as usual. Together they also made plans for the future, and after the restrictions were lifted, they wanted to travel again.
