The corona numbers in Germany are increasing rapidly. The Federal President is certain that people should limit their contacts again – including those who have been vaccinated.
Berlin – In his opinion, Germany can no longer get the pandemic * under control in any other way: Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has called on the population to voluntarily reduce contacts. “It is important that we all act together now,” wrote the SPD politician in a guest post for the Bild am Sonntag (BamS).
“Let’s do it so that schools and daycare centers don’t close again, so that we don’t have to shut down public life completely.” The SPD * politician also urged people to get vaccinated: “We could be so much further ! That is a bitter but necessary realization. ”
Steinmeier on the Corona crisis: “We have the means in hand”
“We have the means to protect ourselves from a serious, even fatal course of the disease. But still too few have made use of it. Therefore I ask you again today: Get vaccinated and renew your vaccination protection in good time! ”Appealed the head of state.
Despite the dramatic situation, the Federal President is also trying to spread hope. “As bitter as it is that our wish for a normal Advent has not come true: Let’s keep the confidence that together we will be able to break the fourth wave and get the corona pandemic under control.”
On Saturday, the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina proposed to quickly impose several weeks of contact bans also for vaccinated people in order to break the strong fourth Corona * wave. In addition, 30 million people in Germany would have to receive a booster vaccination * by the end of the year. A vaccination, at least for employees in the health service, is necessary.
