Chancellery Minister Braun urgently advises vaccination.

Because the freedoms for those who have been vaccinated could be massively restricted in view of the increasing corona numbers.

Berlin - In view of rising corona numbers, the Chancellery Minister has called for vaccinations.

In order to encourage the population to vaccinate, Helge Braun (CDU) has announced possible restrictions for unvaccinated people.

"Vaccinated people will definitely have more freedom than unvaccinated people," he told

Bild on Sunday

.

Another argument in favor of the vaccination is that it protects 90 percent from serious corona diseases.

"In the event of a high infection rate despite test concepts, unvaccinated people would have to reduce their contacts," Braun stated more precisely.

"This can also mean that certain offers such as restaurant, cinema and stadium visits would no longer be possible even for those who have not been vaccinated because the residual risk is too high."

Chancellery minister announces restrictions for unvaccinated people: before election, incidence of 850 feared

The background to this initiative is that the Chancellery Minister, according to

Bild am Sonntag,

fears an increase in the incidence to 850 and thus 100,000 new infections daily before the federal election on September 26th.

"The sickness rates would reach historical highs. All unvaccinated contact persons of the many infected people would first have to be quarantined."

Braun also worries about the start of school after the summer holidays.

“Parents, teachers, caretakers and school bus drivers have to get vaccinated.

If these groups are all vaccinated, the risk for the children is lower. ”In addition, the mask requirement must consistently apply in public buses and trains and in school lessons where there is insufficient space and ventilation.

Chancellery minister announces restrictions for unvaccinated people: the state has a duty

Legally, Braun sees itself on the safe side.

"The state has a duty to protect the health of its citizens," he said.

“This includes a health system that does not have to postpone cancer and joint operations again in winter to treat corona patients.

And that includes protecting those who are not vaccinated. "

Demand from the municipalities: In addition to incidence, keep an eye on the burden on hospitals

Meanwhile, the municipalities are appealing to the federal and state governments to prevent another corona lockdown in autumn. That would be devastating for the people, but also for the economy, said the chief executive of the association of cities and municipalities, Gerd Landsberg, the newspapers of the

Funke media group

(Sunday). Many citizens would hardly accept such a measure, he said.

The federal and state governments would have to come to an agreement as soon as possible as to which yardstick would apply when and where for further restrictions in autumn.

“This has to take into account the incidence, but also the burden on the hospitals.

That should be agreed nationwide between the federal states, ”demanded Landsberg.

"We have to avoid the restaurants in one country closing again because the incidence rises above 100 and in another country this already happens at 50 or only at 150."
