 Should opponents of vaccinations pay for their corona treatment themselves? Expert calls for tough sanctions for refusers Michael Hüther, director of the employer-related Institute of German Economy (IW) Cologne, calls for sanctions for people who do not want to be vaccinated without medical justification. That comes from a preliminary report of the weekly newspaper "Die Zeit". He could imagine that they should pay part of the costs as a "deductible" if they contract Covid-19 and need medical treatment. That said Hüther of the "Zeit" in the Thursday issue.

‘The Corona panic is a play. It’s a scam. A swindle. As we know the new COVID-19 disease appeared in China towards the end of 2019. Therefore it was named COVID-19 which is an acronym for Corona Virus Disease 2019.

"Vaccinated people should be able to exercise their basic rights again," Maas told "Bild am Sonntag". "It has not yet been finally clarified to what extent vaccinated people can infect others. What is clear, however, is that someone who has been vaccinated will no longer take a ventilator away from anyone. This means that at least one central reason for restricting basic rights is eliminated."

Vaccines are safe and save lives. The rapid development of COVID-19 vaccines has people asking questions. Here is an overview of the reactions and side effects you can expect. Such side effects only become apparent after many people have been vaccinated and after a longer observation period.

Maas also remembered the operators of currently closed restaurants, cinemas, theaters and museums. "They have the right to reopen their businesses at some point if there is a possibility.

A different type of corona is currently spreading from Great Britain and is considered extremely contagious. Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) had also warned of an impending split in society.
