The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, He pointed out this Sunday that it will be precise keep some of the restrictions against covid-19 until between 60 and 70% of the population is immunized. The chancellor also acknowledged that some of the measures agreed for this November are “bitter and harsh”, but necessary to keep the pandemic under control.

“We know of other epidemics, the virus has more or less been defeated when between 60 or 70% of the population is immune, either because they have overcome the disease or because they have been vaccinated.

These are already many in our country” , he indicated.

The vaccination process will depend on how many vaccines are available and the immunity time they generate, explained the chancellor. Merkel reiterated that “No one is going to be forced to be vaccinated.” “It will be a free decision,” he said.

Germany has set three consecutive highs for daily infections this week, with up to 23,399 cases this Saturday. Merkel recently assured that the situation was “dramatic” in the country and that it was necessary to take measures to avoid “in weeks” the saturation of the health system.

Throughout November bars and restaurants, museums, swimming pools, gym, theaters and cinemas must be closed. Tourism has been banned, it is recommended to work from home whenever possible and meetings, in public and private spaces, have been reduced to up to 10 members from a maximum of two households.
