NOTE: THIS POST WILL BE SENT WITHOUT SPEAKER TEXT. SOUNDS FROM: Karl Lauterbach (SPD), Federal Minister of Health: “We can decide whether the coronavirus will become an endemic virus with low mortality, with little threat to our medical care overall and with little suffering and death, or whether we should take this opportunity We must do everything we can to ensure that there is no longer a fourth year with a similar threat to our society. Our federal government will meet all the necessary conditions for this. ” “So far, it has been the case that the vaccines, above all known variants, at least have the effect of ensuring that they work reliably against a severe course and death, even in older people and people with risk factors. This can also be expected in the future as a result of the adaptation of the vaccines For me, the safest and fastest way out of the pandemic is to introduce a general vaccination requirement in Germany. ” “If we all refused to use the well-researched vaccination with few side effects to protect ourselves or others from death and serious illness, we would probably never end the pandemic.” Tino Sorge (CDU), Member of the Bundestag “You have always said in the last few weeks that you are in favor of a general compulsory vaccination. You have just done that again here. But you did not say, is that the minister’s opinion now? Is that the one.” Opinion of the ordinary MP Karl Lauterbach? Is that the opinion of the private person Olaf Scholz or the private person Karl Lauterbach, as the Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz always did here yesterday?
