The parliamentary group of the two Union parties supports the draft of an ordinance of the Federal Ministry of Justice for the re-recognition of basic rights for people vaccinated against Corona and those recovered after Corona. Details still need to be clarified. The Federal Council could discuss this before the end of May. The Bundestag would vote on the re-recognition this week.
The health policy spokeswoman for the Union parliamentary group in the Bundestag said that the withdrawal of basic rights for those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered would also create an incentive for more people to be vaccinated. One could thus achieve herd immunity more quickly.
Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU) announced after consultations with the Corona Cabinet, those vaccinated and recovered would be given the opportunity to visit shops and hairdressers without a test. In addition, exit restrictions and the obligation to quarantine will no longer apply to the two groups. Finally, a digital vaccination certificate will be available during the summer.
Earlier, the chairman of the medium-sized and economic union of the CDU-CSU, Linnemann, and the chairman of the Junge Union, Kuban, had campaigned for people to be able to visit restaurants again – including after negative tests. Kuban said there would be unequal treatment otherwise. The forthcoming federal ordinance had to be supplemented, he proposed.
