A Germany These Thursday (2) restrictions were imposed on individuals who have not been vaccinated against Covit-19 in an effort to curb the increase in daily infections caused by the corona virus, which can be exacerbated by the discovery of the Omigran variant.
Among the new measures passed are:
- Controlling the number of people you can meet in the home;
- Closing clubs and discos;
- Lockdown for everyone who has not been vaccinated.
The plan to make the vaccine compulsory is still in the country.

Chancellor Angela Merkel and her successor, Olaf Scholes, spoke with leaders of 16 German states about restricting the access of unvaccinated individuals to all non-essential institutions, such as markets, pharmacies and bakeries.
In an effort to avoid common locks that could prevent the weak recovery of Europe’s largest economy, they need to open businesses to 69% of the fully vaccinated population and survivors of the corona virus.
“The situation is very serious and the number of infections has been confirmed at a very high level,” Merkel said.
Virologists attribute the fourth wave, which inundated intensive care units and led to more than 73,000 new infections and 388 deaths on Thursday, with large sections of the community resisting the vaccine. Politicians have also been criticized for acting too late.
Germany’s vaccination rate is closer to the EU average of more than 70%, but lower than countries such as Portugal and Ireland.
There are signs that the curve is starting to persist: seven days per 100,000 population dropped to 439.2 for the third day in a row.
