Bundestag President Wolfgang Schäuble is disappointed with the falling vaccination rate.
And looks to France.
Berlin - The seven-day incidence has been rising again for weeks, while willingness to vaccinate is declining in the population.
Bundestag President Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) has spoken out in the course of the discussion about mandatory vaccinations in the Federal Republic.
The debate is going in the wrong direction, the 78-year-old told the
Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung
He soon called for corona restrictions only for unvaccinated people.
With the lifting of corona requirements only for vaccinated people, those unwilling to be vaccinated should be encouraged to immunize.
Since the risk of infection from vaccinated or convalescent people is lower, these groups could not be permanently subject to all the restrictions that must apply to non-vaccinated people in order to fight the pandemic, said the CDU politician.
"For such a different treatment of those tested on the one hand and those who have recovered and vaccinated on the other hand, I do not see any constitutional problems, since the risk of vaccination is extremely low according to the current state of knowledge."
Corona: Schäuble "extremely sad" about the population's lack of willingness to vaccinate
Schäuble named the neighboring country France as a possible model for Germany. There, people who have not been vaccinated against Corona no longer have free access to restaurants or cultural events. "We should definitely see how France and other countries are tackling the problem of the lack of vaccination readiness, which paths they are taking," said Schäuble. A certain social pressure is “not wrong” from Schäuble's point of view.
The 78-year-old was disappointed with the lower vaccination rate in Germany.
"I cannot understand the lack of willingness to vaccinate, that makes me extremely sad." This shows "the profound contradictions" of society.
At the beginning of the year, people couldn't have waited to get the saving shot.
“And now family doctors are desperate because vaccination doses are left with them en masse,” said Schäuble.
