Red Alert!

Germany’s COVID19 incidence rate — the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants over a seven-day period — rose for a fifth day in a row, coming in at 6.2 compared to 5.8 on Saturday.

The incidence rate a week ago was 5, according to the RKI.

That means, well, what does that mean? Other than who cares? Just a few weeks ago German health officials were dreaming of one day reaching an incidence rate below 50. Then the world would be in order again.

But that was then and this is now so I guess we’re heading for the next big lockdown. Cool.

Mass Corona-Testing Fraud

Everybody’s doing it!

Highly inaacurate for those being tested and highly expensive for the taxpayers (and the taxpayers’ children, and their children, etc.) who are financing it, these tests are at least “free,” if you get my drift.

A number of high-profile cases of fraud, and enduring questions over the accuracy of antigen (also known as lateral-flow) tests, have prompted criticism of health minister Jens Spahn’s scheme for triggering a free-market free-for-all, something Die Welt newspaper called a “testing gold-rush”.

“It’s an absurd system, and very atypical for Germany”, said Matthias Orth, of the Institute of Laboratory Medicine at Stuttgart’s Marienhospital. Earlier this year, Germany’s disease control agency reported that one commonly used antigen test – which only detects Covid-19 cases on days the viral load is highest – had missed 61% of asymptomatic infections at the emergency ward of a Stuttgart’s Katharinenhospital clinic.

Germans Want Faces Back

They want to save face. No, that’s precisely what they do not want. They don’t want their faces saved. Only if they are in a save place. I mean safe, of course.

Let’s face it. If you take what they say at face value, this means they don’t want companies like Clearview AI all up in their face. And they’re not joking either. They’re demanding that they get their faces back with a straight face.

How I Lost Control Over My Own Face – A company called Clearview AI secretly scrapes the internet for photos, thus producing a gigantic database for government agencies and police. Is it possible to remove yourself from the collection?

There Is A Certain Logic To It

Mutti” (Mommy) doesn’t have any children herself.

The gay Health Minister there doesn’t have any either.

COVID: Germany’s Merkel wants vaccines for children aged 12 to 15 – Children in Germany will soon be able to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, but only if the EU’s EMA approves the BioNTech-Pfizer shot for 12 to 15-year-olds.

Frank Ulrich Montgomery, chair of the World Medical Association (WMA), came out in support of StiKo’s reluctance: “Currently, we do not have enough information on the risks of a COVID vaccine for children to make a clear recommendation,” he told Rheinische Post newspaper.

Slight Correction Here:

It never had control in the first place.

A subtle but important difference.

How Germany lost control of its coronavirus response – In mid-2020, Germany was hailed the world’s shining star of coronavirus containment. Now, while countries like the UK and Israel are going back to normalcy, Germany has been under some form of lockdown for over six months. How did Germany, a country known for its efficiency, love of planning and rationality lose control of its COVID-19 response?

The Next Imaginary Disease

In Germany. It’s called “COVID Fueled Racism.”

The Media Brain Police crank these out so fast I can hardly keep up with them, folks.

Has COVID fueled racism? Germany sees dramatic rise in complaints – Germany’s anti-discrimination agency has a recorded a 78% rise in calls for help since last year. That is more than ever before, with the Black Lives Matter movement and the coronavirus pandemic seen as drivers.

Now That You Are Part Of The Borg Hive We Will Allow You To Go To The Hairdresser

Hey, wait a minute. The Borg don’t have any hair! There’s some kind of conspiracy going on here, people. I’m telling you.

Bavaria and Berlin ease Covid rules for vaccinated people – A handful of German states have announced they are lifting some Covid restrictions for fully vaccinated people – ahead of the federal government’s schedule.

Bavaria will no longer require people who have received both Covid jabs to get rapid Antigen tests before activities like going to the hairdresser, state premier Markus Söder said on Tuesday.

We’re Had Lockdown, Lockdown Light, Lockdown 2, Mega-Lockdown…

Now we will try the Radical Lockdown. Or the Mother of All German Lockdowns, if you prefer.

Lockdown

We’re going to shut down your supermarkets this time too. We’re going to smoke you out, so-to-speak. Are you ready to rebel yet? I mean, come on. How much longer are you going to take this shit from us, people?

Germany imposes strict lockdown over Easter – “We are in a new pandemic” due to the spread of coronavirus variants, Chancellor Angela Merkel has said. German federal and state leaders have agreed on a radical shutdown over the Easter holidays.

“We are in a very, very serious situation.”

Yes, we (as in you) are. Germany has a government that is completely incompetent and the Germans are still doing whatever they are told to do.

Would You Place The Largest Opposition Party In Your Country Under Domestic Surveillance?

Would you have the FBI spy on, say, the Democrats? Yeah, I would too. But that’s not the point. The point is, first of all, that this guy down here looks really, really mean.

AfD

The second and more important point is that by placing the largest opposition party in your country under domestic surveillance you are placing a very large percentage of your electorate under suspicion of being, in this case, Nazis. You can do that here in Germany. Coming to your country soon too?

Germany Places Right-Wing Opposition Party Under Domestic Surveillance – Germany’s domestic intelligence agency has put the country’s largest opposition party under surveillance as a potential threat to the country’s constitution, according to public (they mean state TV) broadcaster ARD and other media outlets. The move affects dozens of lawmakers who are in the right-wing Alternative for Germany, or AfD, party.

I can’t shake the feeling that the other political parties – and they are all on the same sheet of music here – don’t welcome competition from other political parties. Especially from those who have already stolen a considerable number of your voters.

“Angela Merkel’s government is trying to stigmatize us and to really put us in the Nazi corner.”

Germany Extends Coronavirus Lockdown To The Year 2525

Where everything you think, do, and say, is in the pill you took today…

2525

Germany’s national government and states are set to extend the COVID-19 lockdown by three weeks, to March 28…

According to the draft text, up to five adults from two households would be allowed to gather from March 8, with up to 10 adults allowed in areas with low infection rates. Under current rules, each household can only socialize with one other person.

The German government is also expected to appeal to citizens to avoid domestic and foreign travel over the Easter period.

Current lockdown measures have been credited with helping bring down daily new infection numbers.

However, experts last week warned that the declining infection rate had stabilized and even started climbing slightly, with growing concerns about the spread of new virus variants.

The number of coronavirus cases in Germany went up by 3,943 to 2,451,011, according to figures released early on Monday by the country’s Robert Koch Institute for infectious diseases. COVID-linked fatalities went up by 358, to 70,463 in total.
