From Wednesday, '3G' will apply on all public transport, meaning passengers will now have to show proof that they are vaccinated (geimpft), recovered from Covid (genesen) or have taken a negative test in the last 24 hours (getestet) in order to travel.

I’m going to sit outside at cafes during the winter, so I don’t have to keep fumbling for my credentials.

At least they supply blankets.
68 % are vaccinated here, yet our incidence is above 400 now, that is the number of new infections per 100.000 people and week. They must now tell the people, the vaccine is insufficient, a new one has to be developed.


They cannot continue to assume that vaccinated people are really save, our official numbers clearly say that one third of the new infections hits completely vaccinated people. It is on page 23:

Look at India and how it went there. That is what is needed.

When Liberal Talking Head Joe Goebbels was promoting his Kolberg film in 1945, he predicted that his patented form of liberalism would make a comeback in 75 years. The doc hit the bullseye on that prediction.

Ahead of winter, much of German-speaking Europe has already been hit by a new set of measures, including stay-at-home orders, restaurant closures and compulsory vaccination orders.

In scenes reminiscent of late 2020, authorities are concerned about skyrocketing Covid case rates and rapidly dwindling hospital capacity.

A major reason for this is the region’s low vaccination rate, which trails other Western European countries.

German-speaking Europe’s low vaccination rate has drawn significant media attention, with a variety of explanations emerging, from poor initial vaccination messaging to the legacy of Nazi-era policies.

With approximately 100 million people living in German-speaking regions of the continent, reducing vaccine hesitancy to a few cultural touchstones may fail to tell the true story.

There are however a number of reasons why a reluctance to get vaccinated has taken hold in German-speaking parts of the continent.

Austria is breaking new ground in Covid authoritarianism. This week the government announced that it would make vaccinations compulsory – with refusers facing fines that can eventually be converted into prison sentences. This is a wildly authoritarian move, and a dangerous blow to bodily autonomy.

Over the past two years, liberal democracies the world over have introduced unprecedented curbs on liberty in response to Covid-19. The advent of several safe and effective vaccines was supposed to put an end to this nightmare. Vaccines are still, by far, our best means to overcome the crisis and restore our freedoms. But in Austria right now, freedom seems more distant than at any point in the pandemic.

The Austrian government shocked the world last week by imposing a lockdown for the unvaccinated – making it illegal for the unvaccinated to leave the house without a state-mandated excuse. After just seven days this had morphed into a full lockdown for all Austrians. And on the same day Austria entered lockdown, the government announced its compulsory vaccination policy.

I wonder then, why the chart shows that the EU-average is below the German.
