The corona situation in Germany is worsening with a view to Omikron. World doctors boss Montgomery accuses politics of half-heartedness in the measures.
Munich – On Tuesday, the federal and state governments will again discuss the current corona situation in Germany. Although the number of cases has fallen slightly in the past few days and weeks, there is great concern about an impending omicron wave. Developments in other countries such as Great Britain and Denmark suggest that the new variant will soon also be dominant in Germany.
Corona lockdown light: World doctors boss speaks of “numbing the population”
To prevent this, the Corona-MPK is facing tightening of the Corona measures. World Medical President Frank Ulrich Montgomery has now called on politicians to be more resolute in the fight against the pandemic and has spoken out against the imposition of a “lockdown light”.
“A lockdown light only serves to appease one’s guilty conscience and numb the population,” said Montgomery Augsburger Allgemeine. “Politicians keep making the same mistakes,” complained the head of world doctors. A nationwide lockdown is not always appropriate, and strict regional restrictions could also be useful. “But where it says Lockdown, there has to be Lockdown. We really had enough half-heartedness. “
Corona-MPK on Tuesday: New contact restrictions threaten
According to a draft resolution, the prime ministers and prime ministers of the federal states want to decide on contact restrictions also for vaccinated and convalescent people at their video conference with Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) in order to curb the spread of omicron. According to this, a maximum of ten vaccinated and convalescent people should be allowed to meet inside and outside areas from December 28 at private get-togethers. According to the draft resolution, clubs and discos should also close nationwide.
The neighboring country of Austria was already in a three-week lockdown for everyone. The current corona numbers show the effect of the measure. In Germany, experts have warned against an “Omikron wall” in view of the spread of the new variant. (ph with afp)
