COVID-19: Germany Locks Down Unvaccinated People

CNN:-  Germany on Thursday announced a nationwide lockdown for the unvaccinated, as its leaders backed plans for mandatory vaccinations in the coming months.

Unvaccinated people will be banned from accessing all but the most essential businesses, such as supermarkets and pharmacies, to curb the spread of coronavirus, outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel and her successor, Olaf Scholz, announced Thursday, following crisis talks with regional leaders.

Those who have recently recovered from Covid-19 are not covered by the ban.

The pair also backed proposals for mandatory vaccinations, which if voted through the parliament could take effect from February at the earliest.

Under the tightened restrictions, unvaccinated people can only meet two people from another household. Bars and nightclubs must shut down in areas with an incidence rate above 350 cases per 100,000 people over one week. And the country would limit the number of people at large events like soccer matches.

The announcement comes as Germany battles a surge in cases that has pushed Europe back to the epicenter of the pandemic, heightening fears over the newly discovered Omicron variant.

The press briefing is also Merkel’s last before she leaves office; a grim note to end her 16 years as German chancellor.

“We have understood that the situation is very serious and that we want to take further measures in addition to those already taken,” Merkel told reporters at Thursday’s news conference. “The fourth wave must be broken and this has not yet been achieved,” she added.

A nationwide vaccination mandate could come into effect from February 2022 — after it is debated in parliament and following guidance from Germany’s Ethics Council, Merkel said.
She added that vaccinated people will lose their vaccination status nine months after getting their last shot, apparently in an effort to encourage booster uptake.

  1. Even though the US has occupied Germany since 1945, fascism still exists there…hmmm…

    It’s very much the same way that Germany’s bio-weapons program was continued in the US and the UK, till now! (Can anyone say Fort Detrick and Porton Down?)

  2. Merkel said.
    She added that vaccinated people will lose their vaccination status nine months after getting their last shot, apparently in an effort to encourage booster uptake. Only the blind won’t see and the deaf can’t hear.

    Read and keep reading this statement until it wakes you up. This was never about virus.

  3. wow these people are really cruel. this is total discrimination , why would you want to put a lock down on the unvaccinated? its like this war is not against the virus but rather against the unvaccinated, people who are fully vacc can still die from he virus and can still spread the virus. What is going on is like saying only black people must seat to the back of the bus and all the whites in front smh.
