(GermanPolicy.com) – According to Federal Health Minister Lauterbach (SPD), the Infection Protection Act is to be revised by autumn. By that time, the cases of Covid19 infections might again increase. In addition, new mutations are likely to occur. As a result, wearing a mouth and nose protector could rebecome mandatory indoors. At present, the mask requirement only applies in medical practices and public transport, provided that the Federal States do not declare regions to be hotspots.
Lauterbach expects that a vaccine adapted to the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus will be available in autumn. It is his goal to provide sufficient amounts of vaccine for every citizen.
