Germany is considering full isolation and mandatory vaccines for Covid

(ORDO NEWS) — On Wednesday, Germany will make a decision to tighten measures against Covid. Officials are considering introducing stricter rules on Covid and even full or partial isolation.

Germany is recording a record number of Covid cases every day and increasing the burden on hospitals as the delta variant of the virus gains ground. Health Minister Jens Spahn has already issued an alarming warning to the Germans this week, cnbc.com writes.

Germany is about to make a decision to tighten restrictions on Covid-19 and may even decide to complete isolation amid record daily infections and growing pressure on hospitals.

The country’s health minister, Jens Spahn, issued a grim warning to the Germans this week, saying that by the end of winter “virtually everyone in Germany will be vaccinated, recover or die.” Outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel has called on the heads of Germany’s 16 federal states (which were largely free to decide their own vaccination measures) to decide on stricter rules for Wednesday.

Spahn reiterated the demand on Tuesday, adding that more public spaces should be restricted to vaccinated, newly recovered or test negative – the so-called “3G rule”. As of Wednesday, 3G rules apply to all Germans going to work or on public transport.

Many German states have already restricted access to public places such as bars, restaurants, cinemas and museums under the “2G rules”, restricting access only to those who are vaccinated – “geimpft” in German – or have recovered, “genesen”. A number of large German Christmas markets that have not been canceled this year have adopted 2G rules.

Last week, the government and the federal states agreed on further nationwide restrictions, which will take effect depending on the hospitalization rate in the respective federal state.
