German Chancellor Merkel’s chief of staff said that if the number of cases reaches new heights in the next few months, it may be necessary to limit the number of people who have not been vaccinated.
But Helge Braun said in an interview with Bild that he does not expect Germany to see another lockdown related to the coronavirus.
Braun said that people who have not been vaccinated may be prohibited from entering places such as restaurants, movie theaters and stadiums, “because the residual risk is too high.”
Braun said that vaccinations are important to prevent serious diseases because “people who are vaccinated must have more freedom than people who have not been vaccinated.”
Braun said that such a policy is legal because “the state has a responsibility to protect the health of citizens.”
Vaccine work in Germany has slowed in recent weeks, which has sparked discussions about how to encourage people who have not yet been vaccinated to get vaccinated. More than 60% of the German population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, and more than 49% have been fully vaccinated.
