German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has said that he rules out taking measures to combat Corona in the coming autumn and winter that will be as severe as they were in the past two years.
The Social Democratic politician said today, Sunday, “There will be no school closures, and I also do not think that we will need to close in the same way that we have had in the past two years,” noting that there is a “completely different situation” at the moment, indicating that the rate of Vaccination (basic immunization) is up to 76% in Germany.
On the other hand, Schultz expressed his belief that it is possible that the compulsory testing and the obligatory wearing of the muzzle will play a greater role again in the fight against Corona in the fall and winter, and said: “It should be discussed whether the tests will be used again.”
Regarding the obligatory wearing of the muzzle, which is still present mainly in public transportation and institutions where there are at-risk groups such as hospitals and care homes, Schultz said: “I think it should be assumed that the muzzle will play a greater role in the fall and winter than it does now.”
It is noteworthy that the Corona measures were strongly curtailed in the spring, and the day before yesterday, Friday, a committee of experts presented a long-awaited report on the impact of Corona protection measures, and experts said that wearing a muzzle can still help in combating the virus.
Experts put question marks in front of many other known limitations in the fight against Corona, and said that it is not possible to provide reliable assessments due to a lack of data.
The day before yesterday, German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach warned of a dangerous wave of corona coming in the coming autumn and winter.
