BR24live 1 p.m.: Lauterbach, Wieler and Drosten on the Corona situation


Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD), the President of the Robert Koch Institute, Lothar Wieler, and the virologist Christian Drosten from the Berlin Charité are providing information on the current corona situation in Berlin today. In view of the highly contagious omicron variant, the numbers have recently risen significantly. In addition to the increasing numbers, topics before the federal press conference are likely to be the vaccination campaign, the latest booster recommendation from the Standing Vaccination Commission (Stiko) for children and young people from the age of twelve and the discussion about compulsory vaccination.

Lauterbach campaigned in the Bundestag for compulsory corona vaccination

On Thursday, Lauterbach spoke out again in the Bundestag for the introduction of a general obligation to vaccinate. He said this is the safest and fastest way out of the corona pandemic. Lauterbach left the schedule and details open. Compulsory vaccination is medically necessary and morally justifiable. If everyone refused to be vaccinated, “we would probably never be able to end the pandemic,” he said. The minister recalled that 115,000 people had already died and warned against underestimating the danger of the virus.
