Up until a few months ago, not everyone in Germany knew the mayor of Bremen. Then Andreas Bovenschulte was suddenly a frequent guest on the news and talk shows, because Bremen caused a stir in the fight against Corona: In no other federal state was the vaccination rate higher, it is still the same to this day, number one with currently 85 percent of those who have been vaccinated twice – 14 percentage points more than Bavaria , 24 more than Saxony. League leader Bremen! But now Bovenschultes Revier has another top spot. The city of Bremen is first again – among the infected.
