Karl Lauterbach is expecting a tough time during the corona pandemic

The health minister warned of failures in companies and critical infrastructure. According to him, the number of corona will increase again soon.

Health Minister Karl Lauterbach believes that Germany is facing difficult times due to the increase in the number of corona in the autumn. With the Omicron subvariant BA.5, at least at the beginning of autumn, the number of cases will increase, the SPD politician told “Welt am Sonntag”. “Then there will be failures in companies and critical infrastructure, for example in hospitals. So we are facing difficult times.” This is especially so when the cold temperatures make it normal to stay indoors.

There are already 100 to 150 deaths per day due to Corona. “My concern is that this number could increase.” It is not supported. So prepare well. “And if the Bundestag decides on the proposed amendment to the Infection Protection Act, it will be ours,” the minister said.

“It’s a mistake”

Lauterbach hopes for a corona autumn without changing to a serious virus variant. If no variant changes, Germany will not fall into a pandemic situation. “Still, we need equipment for emergencies,” Lauterbach said. “Corona autumn will not be a bed of roses.” In the interview, he did not rule out declaring an “epidemic situation” again in the winter.
