Brinkhaus on Corona resolutions: ‘too little, too late’
BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – Union parliamentary group leader Ralph Brinkhaus has criticized the latest federal and state resolutions in the fight against Corona as inadequate. “I take very seriously what the RKI says, what Mr. Wieler says, that’s why I would have liked – more and earlier,” said the CDU politician on Wednesday in the ARD “Morgenmagazin”. The measures are accounted for too little and too late. It is incomprehensible that the measures are only started after Christmas. “You could have done that before Christmas – as some federal states do”. He does not share the view that Christmas is not necessarily a driver of infection.
Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) agreed on Tuesday with the Prime Ministers of the federal states, among other things, on stricter contact restrictions from December 28th at the latest. There should be an upper limit of ten people for private meetings. However, shortly before the federal-state round, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) called for much more far-reaching measures, including immediate maximum contact restrictions. The new Expert Council of the Federal Government had also warned of the danger of an “explosive spread” of the Omikron variant.
The deputy group leader of the Left, Gesine Lötzsch, criticized the fact that the resolutions lacked clear statements on open questions in the pandemic. “When will we have enough vaccine? (…) When will all schools have air filters? (…) How do we manage to win back nursing staff?”, She said in the ARD “Morgenmagazin”. Demands are made of the citizens, but the government must also fulfill its obligations. / Stz / DP / jha
