In the view of Rhineland-Palatinate Prime Minister Malu Dreyer (SPD), the fight against the fourth corona wave requires a binding legal basis for corona measures by the federal states, but no uniform nationwide rules.
Mainz / Lindau – «If the“ epidemic emergency ”should expire, then we need legal and legal foundations in order to be able to take further measures,” Dreyer said on Friday in the ZDF “Morgenmagazin” with a view to the one that expires on November 25th Legal status.
There is no need for uniform nationwide rules, the situation in the federal states is very different. “It would be enough for us if we have the authorization to take certain measures – and we need them too,” said Dreyer. Citizens should understand: “The end of the” epidemic situation with national consequences “does not mean the end of the pandemic.” But you also have to know: “We don’t have the same situation as last year.”
Dreyer welcomed the fact that at the health ministerial conference of the federal and state governments, which will end this Friday, decisions will be made for booster vaccinations and for compulsory testing for unvaccinated people who work with endangered groups. “We have to be able to continue to vaccinate intensively, we have to be able to boost with high pressure, and we have to be able to protect the vulnerable groups more strongly, hence the obligation to test. If we go about this triad together, then I am also confident that we can manage autumn and winter, “said Dreyer. (dpa)
