Omicron mutation, German minister: Isolate the unvaccinated
Outgoing German Health Minister Jens Spahn has stressed the need for restrictions on unvaccinated people against coronavirus.
He made the remarks on December 2, before meetings between the federal government and the heads of state took place to discuss possible restrictions.
"What is important now is an isolation for the unvaccinated," he told German broadcaster ZDF.
He said a large number of unvaccinated people "pose a challenge to the health system".
"If you look at the intensive care units, if you analyze the dynamics of infections, it has to do with a large number of unvaccinated people."
In addition, the German minister spoke about access only to people vaccinated and cured of the coronavirus "in almost all areas of life."
Among other things, Spahn has mentioned that he wants the big events to be canceled or reduced, as well as the closure of nightclubs.
"Even if there were no more infections in Germany from tomorrow, we would still face over 6,000 patients in intensive care in the coming days."
In meetings expected later Thursday, German leaders will discuss a coordinated response to the pandemic.
