President of the Bundestag, Wolfgang Schäuble, has warned people who want to take part in demonstrations against the Corona requirements not to get hijacked. He has campaigned to respect not only health, but also political distance rules. Schäuble spoke out against conspiracy theorists, above all. Demonstrations are an expression of the fact that democracy is alive. Protests should possible, he said. But it should be considered and checked whether applause for the demonstrations does not originate from the wrong corner.
Schröder praises government crisis management
Former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder now believes that the protests against the Corona measures pose no threat to democracy. Germany, 75 years after the end of the war, is a grown-up democracy, he said. The sensible among the citizens should counter the protesters and not take their ideas too seriously. The government has done a good crisis management, said Schröder. This be so thanks to the German health system and the German infrastructure. “Those who have criticized our health care system because of high costs should think again,” warned Schröder.
