Head of the German Ministry of Health: Germans are either vaccinated or face the consequences countries will either receive the COVID-19 vaccine or face the consequences of the infection. His statement is reported by RT.
“Probably by the end of winter, as they sometimes cynically say, almost everyone in Germany will be vaccinated, healed or dead,” predicted Spahn.
He's yet another once called on all Germans to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, but stressed that he still does not support the idea of compulsory vaccination, which, according to him, will not be able to accelerate the emergence of herd immunity.
Spahn's statement was made against the background of statements by a number of German politicians on the possible introduction of compulsory vaccination in the country. In particular, the Prime Minister of Bavaria Markus Seder said that the increase in the number of cases among the unvaccinated “broke through the ceiling” and expressed the hope that the authorities will not have to introduce compulsory vaccinations.
According to the Robert Koch Institute, over the past day in Germany, 30 643 cases of coronavirus infection were recorded, 62 people died. At the same time, the number of infections per 100 thousand people amounted to 386.5 cases, which is an anti-record for the country.
Against the background of another peak of infections, the management of the Munich football club “Bavaria” decided not to pay the salaries of football players who refused vaccinations .
On November 13, the country's authorities announced the mobilization of 12 thousand troops. These forces will be involved in the fight against the fourth wave of coronavirus by the end of this year. In particular, the military will provide logistics services to German clinics and build temporary hospitals.
