German government locking down unvaccinated

November 17, 2021 - "Those who, for varying personal reasons, have chosen not to get vaccinated against Covid are facing increased, targeted restrictions around the world. The introduction of lockdowns against the unvaccinated only in Austria and, in the coming weeks, in Germany is perhaps the most extreme example of separation yet.

"The incoming Social Democrat (SDP) government today warned that those 14million Germans who have not been vaccinated will be prevented, likely with the threat of fines, from using public transport and from going to work. Meanwhile, millions of other citizens will be permitted by the state to live their lives as normal (save from working and travelling alongside their unvaccinated friends and relatives). 

"The SDP and its coalition partners will present these plans to parliament for approval on Thursday. They have been labelled a form of 'lockdown apartheid'. Dirk Wiese, the Deputy Head of the SPD parliamentary group, was very willing to admit that 'this is actually a lockdown for the unvaccinated'. 

Daily Sceptic Editor Toby Young told Express.co.uk: 'Given its history, I hoped Germany would be a bit more inhibited about curtailing the rights of a part of its population on the grounds that they’re dangerous and unclean. But apparently not.' He added: 'The really worrying thing is that it could happen here.'

In the UK, thousands of care home workers have been sacked because they failed to comply with a new Covid vaccine mandate. The Government recently expanded its mandate to cover all frontline NHS staff – last year lauded for their efforts to curtail the impact of the virus. Vaccine passports have also been put on the back-burner and could be introduced if the Government decides to implement its winter ‘Plan B’. This would also trigger the re-introduction of face mask mandates and work from home guidelines.

"Reported cases reached a high of more than 50,000 in Germany on November 10."

November 22, 2021 - The German health minister has warned citizens that they would be either 'vaccinated, cured or dead' from COVID-19 by the end of winter as several European countries impose restrictions amid surging infections.... Germany’s worst-hit regions have ordered new shutdowns, including the closure of Christmas markets.

"In regions with high hospitalisation rates, the unvaccinated will be barred from public spaces like cinemas, gyms and indoor dining. Outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel warned that Germany’s current COVID restrictions, including barring the unvaccinated from certain public spaces 'are not enough'....

"Germany added another 30,643 cases on Monday, according to the Robert Koch Institute health agency, bringing the total since the start of the pandemic to just more than 5.3 million. Almost 100,000 people have died so far, including 62 during the past 24 hours."
