Angela Merkel announces restrictions only for the unvaccinated

Faced with the surge in Covid-19 infections, Germany is toughening its tone and especially towards unvaccinated people. After a crisis meeting on Thursday, Angela Merkel announced the generalization of specific restrictions for these citizens, such as their exclusion from certain public places.

The so-called “2G” rule, which only allows the vaccinated (“geimpfte”) and the cured (“genesene”) to access public places such as restaurants or concert halls will be applied as soon as the hospitalization threshold exceeds three patients with Coronavirus per 100,000 inhabitants, said the outgoing chancellor. The rule will therefore apply in most parts of the country.

Compulsory vaccination for hospital staff

While it had so far refused to consider compulsory vaccination for certain professional categories, Angela Merkel’s government will make vaccination against Covid-19 compulsory for staff “in hospitals, care or retirement homes ”.

“We must protect the most vulnerable groups,” the heads of the regions said in a joint statement, in order to justify this decision.
