- The rumor persists that there should be an obligation to vaccinate against the coronavirus. Chancellor Minister Helge Braun (CDU) is now opposing this.
- “If you don’t want that, you have to bear the risk of infection yourself,” Braun told the Funke media group.
- Braun described the previous fight against the virus in Germany as “very successful”.
According to Chancellor Helge Braun, there will be no compulsory vaccination against the corona virus in Germany. If there is a vaccine, it is good if many can be vaccinated. But everyone decides for themselves, the CDU politician told the newspapers of the Funke media group (Saturday). “If you don’t want that, you have to bear the risk of infection yourself,” emphasized Braun. He hopes for a vaccine for the general public between the beginning and middle of next year. Then you could go back to normal life.
Braun described the previous fight against the virus in Germany as “very successful”. A large part of the population handles the contact restrictions in a disciplined manner. Braun, himself a medical doctor, added: “From a medical point of view, when it comes to travel and conviviality, there is something queasy about me – we shouldn’t be too researched. Experience has shown that this plays a major role in the spread of the virus. ”
Braun called the economic and social consequences of the crisis “very serious”. After the aid program, the first step was to talk about how to get the economic cycle going again. Braun refused in the context of cash checks for citizens called helicopter money. It is now less about short-term consumption, but more about sustainable investments. “I can also reassure everyone who is concerned about the climate issue. In my view, economic incentives should be used exactly where it helps to achieve further goals, ”said Braun.
