Merkel: vaccination is a social responsibility

Germany’s outgoing Chancellor Merkel reminded people on the 11th that those who have not been vaccinated must understand that they have a social responsibility to protect others

Merkel said that the epidemic is similar to the challenge of climate change, and it is difficult to detect its severity at the beginning. Therefore, when the outbreak begins, immediate action must be taken to control it

at present, the vaccination rate is lower than 70% experts: at least 85% of the population needs to be vaccinated

infectious disease expert Herod said on the 11th that the rapid growth of new cases is mainly due to the low vaccination rate. She pointed out that the people who refused to vaccinate came from all walks of life. “They don’t trust the vaccine and the country, and they are usually difficult to contact through public publicity activities.”

Herod, together with other scientists, previously conducted simulation estimates for the impact of the fourth wave of the epidemic. They warned early this summer that in the face of the highly infectious delta variant virus, at least 85% of Germany’s total population must complete vaccination in order to avoid a public health crisis

she said: “now our vaccination rate is still below 70%. I don’t know whether time is enough. In the face of the epidemic, I’m afraid we have lost.”

Germany’s vaccination rate is the lowest among Western European countries. The number of confirmed cases in Germany has been increasing rapidly recently. In particular, more than 50000 new cases were reported on Thursday, reaching a record high. The federal government has called on state authorities to take further measures to contain the epidemic
