Germany’s lockdown loving health minister has rejected the term ‘freedom day’, saying that he expects COVID to last 10 YEARS.
Karl Lauterbach—known as a lockdown extremist in Germany—has said he believes the use of ‘freedom day’ is inappropriate, as he does not believe the crisis to be over by the time Germany eases restrictions in March.
Instead, the epidemiologist has said he thinks the federal republic will be dealing with COVID for another decade.
“I don’t use the term at all and I don’t think it’s appropriate either,” he said, claiming that some older people should never be free again post-pandemic.
“There will never be full freedom for these people, so I don’t think it’s right to pretend that there is complete normality for everyone.”
While he voiced his support for limited easing—which is expected to take place in Germany in late March, compared to Britain where most restrictions have been lifted—he also warned that he expected Germany to be dealing with COVID for a decade.
“I think we’re going to be dealing with COVID for ten years, but with decreasing intensity,” Lauterbach said.
