Today, Wednesday, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier urged people in his country to get the Corona vaccine.
This came during the inauguration of the German President’s celebration of “Naval Days 2021” in the port of Bremerhaven, located on the North Sea, after stopping this celebration due to the Corona pandemic.
“We have had to give up a lot of things over a long period of time,” Steinmeier told many onlookers, calling on people to get vaccinated, saying, “Only vaccination is the perfect solution to the pandemic,” noting that this offers hope for other big celebrations.
The celebration will continue over five days until Sunday, with the participation of about 90 ships, including sailing ships, engine-powered ships and a steam ship, and 50,000 visitors were allowed to attend the restaurants and music areas, with 10,000 visitors per day in two periods.
Several major port festivities were canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Corona pandemic.
Steinmeier plans to visit the sailing ship “Alexander von Humboldt II” and the frigate “North Rhine-Westphalia” in Bremerhaven and speak with volunteer workers.
