Corona in Germany: Spahn and RKI boss Wieler speak in a PK on the current situation

First

report

from December 30th:

Berlin - One day before the turn of the year, the

Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported

a new sad high.

For the first time in Germany,

more than 1000 people died

in connection with the

coronavirus

within 24 hours

.

In total, the health authorities reported 1129 new

deaths to

the RKI

.

In addition, the health authorities recorded 22,459 new infections.

At 11 a.m., Federal Health

Minister

Jens Spahn

(CDU)

and RKI boss

Lothar Wieler

want to

speak

at a federal press conference on the current

Corona situation *

in

Germany

.

In view of this, an extension of the current

lockdown

beyond January 10th

seems

inevitable.

Spahn agreed the population on Tuesday evening in the

ARD topics of the day

.

He said that when it came to containing the

corona pandemic *

, Germany was "still far from where we have to be".

Therefore, according to Spahn, after January 10th there will be "

no doubt measures

" *.

To what extent would the federal and state governments have

to decide

at their planned

conference

next Tuesday, January 5th.

Then Federal Chancellor

Angela Merkel

(CDU) and the Prime Minister

want to

discuss how to proceed after the planned end of the lockdown.

Does the #lockdown have to continue after January 10th, 2021?

I asked @jensspahn that.

The whole interview today at 11:15 pm, on good old TV.

Corona in Germany: Spahn considers privileges for vaccinated people to be "right and important"

Another topic at the federal press conference will probably be the start of

corona vaccinations *

in Germany.

At the beginning there were some

mishaps

.

For example, there were problems with scheduling appointments.

Spahn

explained that at the beginning, waiting times on the telephone lines could unfortunately not be avoided.

He could only ask for understanding and patience.

Since every federal state has a different system, there is “a little federal mess”.

In the opinion of the Minister of Health, it is “right and important”

to grant

vaccinated persons

certain

privileges

, such as access to restaurants.

Spahn

explained that

live

on

Bild

.

The private-commercial sector has more leeway in this matter.

According to his legal understanding, a pizzeria would only be “what is possible” for vaccinated people.

In the

public sector

and in

services of general interest

, for example in hospitals, town halls or local public transport, from his point of view no distinction can be made between vaccinated and non-vaccinated people.
