A couple weeks ago German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced large parts of public life will be limited for the unvaccinated.
Merkel said hospitals are overwhelmed with Covid patients because people are refusing to take the jab.
On Thursday Merkel and Olaf Scholz, the vice chancellor who will be replacing Merkel next week, will unveil the new Covid mandates:
Mandatory Covid shots for hospital, care-home employees. As many as 30 million vaccine shots given by Christmas. Increase pool of people who can administer vaccines. Access to restaurants, theaters only for vaccinated, recovered. Access to non-essential stores only for vaccinated, recovered. Tighter contact restrictions for non-vaccinated people. Nightclubs closed in places with high infection rates. Limits on number of spectators at large public events. Expanded crisis unit to coordinate federal, regional action.
