The pandemic situation is not over yet.

Dresden - Saxony's Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU) does not see the end of the pandemic situation of national scope.

"On the contrary, it is just gaining strength and danger again," said the head of government to the German Press Agency in Dresden on Wednesday, contradicting Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU).

He had previously spoken out in favor of the nationwide Corona emergency * not being extended again after November 25.

“A big mistake happened in the spring.

Politicians had decided against the advice of science to lift protective measures in the event of increasing infections.

The result was the federal emergency brake and lockdown in spring.

If you want to enforce normality, you may be preventing it, ”argued Kretschmer.

In these days one can still decide whether restrictions could be concentrated on the risk group of the unvaccinated.

In a few weeks, this option will no longer be available either.

Criticism of Kretschmer: "Promotes a division in society"

“2G is now an absolute must.

The infections in the unvaccinated people determine this fourth wave, ”said Kretschmer in conclusion.

The population must be informed about the current corona development.

This requires a public debate and a decision as to which protective measures are socially supported.

The Dresden FDP member of the Bundestag, Torsten Herbst, accused Kretschmer of “apparently wanting to turn back the clock”: “With his demand, he promotes a division of society into vaccinated and recovered on the one hand and unvaccinated on the other.

Anyone who had hoped that corona alarmism and actionism would come to an end in Saxony was wrong. ”Unvaccinated citizens also have rights and cannot simply be degraded to second-class citizens.

In Saxony, the number of new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants recently increased significantly in one week.

The Robert Koch Institute showed the incidence value for Saxony on Wednesday at 200.8, after 191.4 the previous day.

The Free State is thus well above the nationwide value (118.0) and has the second highest weekly incidence after Thuringia (241.8).
