New restriction against non- vaccinated people in Germany


Angela Merkel described the new rules that will be applied in Germany against unvaccinated people as a  "national solidarity".

those who have been vaccinated or recently recovered from Covid will exclusively have the permission to go to leisure facilities, restaurants, shops....

According to the chancellor, vaccination could be obligatory by february 2022, as Germany's fourth wave of Covid is the most severe wave that hit the country since 2019, with approximately 388 dead cases  recorded in the last 24 hours.

Growing concerns over the spread of the Omicron variant is also a reason why the government is opting for the new restrictions. EU health officials predicted that in the following months, Omicron would be responsible for half of the Covid19 cases.

Mrs Merkel said hospitals were overloaded to the point that many patient had to be relocated to other treatment facilities.."

"Given the situation, I think it is appropriate to adopt compulsory vaccination," she said, while making clear that this would have to be approved by parliament.

  • Unvaccinated people will be limited to meetings with their own household and two other people.
