New Covid rules were passed in Berlin Germany on Friday, September 15, based on a proposal by Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) and Justice Minister Marco Buschmann (FDP). It is likely to come into force on October 1.
Now the country is “well prepared”, said Lauterbach.
Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) said that if the infection situation worsens, the federal states can impose further requirements by means of a state parliament resolution: Mandatory masks also at outdoor events if distances of 1.50 metres are not possible; upper visitor limits for indoor events; hygiene concepts for businesses and other facilities.
According to the health minister, a new nationwide vaccination campaign is planned and information is to be provided about the vaccines adapted to new virus variants.
“Medicines are to be used more intensively for people infected with Covid 19 and there should also be better, daily updated data on clinic occupancy.
“Homes must appoint representatives who take care of vaccinations, hygiene and therapies for patients with the drug Paxlovid, for example,” he said.

Thank goodness they have seen sense and stopped forcing pointless masks on people in aeroplanes, but they say there is the possibility of mandating them in schools again?? That is just lunacy as there is no scientific basis for it based on all available evidence across Europe. Hopefully they won’t be that idiotic but I hold no hope when it comes to ignorant politicians wanting to be seen to be ‘doing something’.
Shame they missed the WHO statement about the decline of the pandemic. surgical masks are useless at containing virus particles (if they believe that, they could save a fortune on equipping the military with these masks instead of the ones that work!) , so one must ask either they are ignorant of the facts or waiting to be voted out by the electrorate when there time comes.
