Covid cases in Germany is soaring and the country is attempting to put tighter restrictions on those who remain unvaccinated.
According to Chancellor Angela Merkel and authorities of 16 other states in Germany, restrictions will commence over those unvaccinated in areas where admittance into hospitals are full to the brim.
This would ensure that those who have not got the Covid jab will be prevented from entering certain spaces and venues.
Angela Merkel discusses the need to rise to the urgency that the threat of Covid poses now that the number of cases per day has increased to about 65,000 which has been the highest rate since the pandemic began.
According to BBC News henceforth, only those who are vaccinated will be the only ones let into spaces like restaurants, cultural shows and sporting events.
Most of the states have hospitals whose capacities are overfilled with so many Covid patients.
While states with hospitals that contain much severe Covid patients’ rates will have to take extra effort to ensure that people are tested and vaccinated, other states whose hospitals’ severity is much higher will have to restrict a person to person contact.
This decision is to the lower house cabinet agreed in favour of using more restrictive measures to curtail Covid spread.
This decision will be encouraging a quasi lockdown where those unvaccinated will not be able to use public transport and will be hindered from going to work.
Even though there have been threats to not let the bill successfully pass in the upper cabinet chamber, it still stands that Germany will have to take extreme protocols to curb the vast spread of Covid among citizens.
Two states in Germany – Bavaria and Saxony – have already begun implementing drastic measures to curb the fast rise of cases.
