Germany Lockdown the Unvaccinated

Germany Lockdown the Unvaccinated

Exiting Chancellor Angela Merkel on December 2 said Germany would detain unvaccinated people, while top officials also indicated that they would support plans for mandatory vaccinations in the coming months.

Barring individuals who have not been immunised against COVID-19 from entering non-essential stores as well as cultural and recreational facilities will not be an offence.

Germany is also planning a general vaccination mandate that will be put through the Parliament, the Bundestag. The use of masks in schools will also be a requirement.

“Our country is in a serious situation,” she told reporters, claiming that the new measures are “an act of national solidarity.”

“We have realised that the situation is very serious, and we want to take additional measures in addition to those that have already been taken,” Merkel, whose last day at the office was December 2, told reporters. “The fourth wave must be stopped,” she said.

On the other hand, People who have been vaccinated will lose their vaccination status nine months after receiving their last dose of a vaccine.
