The Associated Press made some shocking reports. German Health Minister Jens Spahn predicts that people who have not been vaccinated will certainly contract COVID-19 by the end of this winter season. The politician directly said that some of them will die.
By the end of this winter, almost everyone in Germany will be vaccinated, healed or will die, Spahn said to reporters in Berlin.
For the highly contagious delta variant, this is very, very likely and why we urgently recommend vaccination, he added.
Germany saw an increase in new coronavirus cases of around 50 percent last week. On Monday, the number of new cases was around 30,000. The country is approaching 100,000 COVID fatalities.
An appeal to compatriots
The politician urges his compatriots to get vaccinated if they have not already done so, or to get a booster injection if they have been vaccinated six months ago or earlier. To maintain the vaccination rate in Germany, 50 million doses of mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna will be available for the rest of the year.
Currently, the vaccination rate in Germany is 68 percent. According to health experts, the German population must reach 75 percent of those vaccinated nationwide to suppress disease rates.
