There have been 30,643 new infections in the past 24 hours and 7,000 more than a week ago. This has ranked amongst the highest rates in the world.
A more severe restrictions has been planned to be implemented which will exclude the unvaccinated from certain areas. And many Germany Christmas markets has been canceled.
Mr Spahn who was against making the vaccine compulsory has said its moral obligation to get the vaccine because it impacts on other peoples lives.
In his words; “Freedom means taking responsibility, and you owe the society a duty to get vaccinated”
He also made it known to the public that a highly Delta Variant is driving the latest wave and if anybody should fail getting vaccinated will, in the next few months get infected and lack protection.
Ever since the pandemic, more than 99,000 of people living in Germany have died, and more than 5.4 million have been infected with the virus.
The country is in great expectations that European Union will approve vaccination for children in the age range of 5 to 11 before the end of the week.
