Germans In Uniform Again

When it comes to their next lockdown, I mean. Or maybe they aren’t. Hard to say for sure.

Merkel backs ‘short, uniform lockdown’ across Germany – German Chancellor Angela Merkel has thrown her weight behind calls for a “short, uniform lockdown” as the country grapples with a high level of coronavirus cases fueled by the spread of a more contagious variant first detected in Britain

I’ve been very sceptical about anything Angela Merkel attempts these days but if she’s thrown her weight behind this measure then it might just happen.

The Other Lockdowns Weren’t Serious?

Oh. They were all elaborate practical jokes, or what?

“We Won’t Get Around a Serious Lockdown.”

A Third Wave Washes over Germany as Vaccination Campaign Mounts

Medical professionals and virologists in Germany have been clear in their message: The third wave of the coronavirus must be stemmed through tough measures, otherwise the consequences will be dramatic. So, why are Angela Merkel and her state governors stalling?

Run with it, Germany. You blew it with the vaccines and practically everything else during this pandemic but you are number one when it comes to locking down so lock yourself down seriously this time, until you’re blue in the face.

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.

But This Can’t Be

Everybody is wearing masks.

Masks

And we’re Germans so we have everything under control (that’s why I booked my vacation).

Germany’s COVID rate exceeds critical 100 in 100,000 rate – The seven-day incidence of new coronavirus infections has exceeded the critical benchmark of 100. The significant rise in case numbers is likely to dominate top discussions on COVID-19 restrictions scheduled for Monday.

Hard Lockdown, Lockdown Light, Christmas Lockdown…

Did Germans flock to the stores and through the crowds yesterday to get their Christmas shopping done before the big Christmas lockdown?

Lockdown

And to get their COVID19 infection while they were at it? Of course they did. They had to. But they know that their government is only locking them down for their own good so they are thankful that they were allowed to Christmas shop for as long as they did.

Germans flocked to the shops to get their Christmas shopping done. Now it’s forced them into lockdown for the holiday.

“The people are fed up with the situation.”

Not fed up enough, it seems. Happy Holidays!

Germany Still Doing Everything Right

In its fight against COVID-19. So remember, US-Amerika, you can learn from Germany too.

Corona

Germany was held up as an example of how to do the pandemic. Now it’s struggling.

Coronavirus: German ICUs see 40% more patients than in April – Intensive care units (ICU) at some German hospitals are reaching full capacity with seriously ill COVID-19 patients, the country’s hospital federation said. A high percentage of nurses are off sick or in quarantine.

“We clearly reject the accusation of alarmism.”

Warning Signs

Although German scientists have identified a warning sign for severe COVID (immature blood cells)…

Covid

They have yet to identify the many warning signs for severe COVID psychosis all around them. For instance, the severe effects this psychosis is having on our civil liberties; the indisputably measurable drop in the freedom of expression, the right to privacy, free movement and free association, etc.

Normally extremely squeamish about the concept of trade-offs when it comes to ideas like “total tolerance” “multiculturalism” and “diversity,” for example (they always have downright compulsury “solutions” for these instead), the governments funding these scientists – and restricting our freedom – have absolutely no problem imposing trade-offs on our civil liberties when it comes to COVID-19. That must be because they are going to trade them right back to us again. Real soon, right?

 

“German Health Official Says Coronavirus Restrictions Are Working”

While the same German official confirms the highest daily rate of infections so far (23,648 new cases).

Lockdown

Health officials can be that way. Once everybody has been infected with Coronavirus they will recommend that the government consider lifting of the current restrictions, I assume.

Speaking to reporters in Berlin, Robert Koch Institute chief Lothar Wieler said the number of new infections has since plateaued, with 22,609 reported on Thursday – roughly the same number as a week ago. He said the fact they are not rising is good news but cautioned that it was too early to say if this is a trend.

23.648 neue Fälle: Höchstand bei Corona-Neuinfektionen.

German Restrictions Re-Restricted For More Regulated And Restrictive Restriction

She’s from the government and she’s here to help.

Masks

The first batch of COVID-19 restrictions worked wonders in Germany. That’s why they introduced a tighter set of restrictions a few months later. And these were so popular (with the German government) that said government is going to re-restrict these restrictions to an even more restrictive level. A special Christmas bonus restriction track is in the works now too, I assume.

Coronavirus: Merkel, German states consider tougher restrictions – Germany’s federal government and states are considering tighter COVID-19 restrictions, such as dramatically reducing the number of people at private gatherings and compulsory mask wearing for school students.

It’s Never Too Early To Say It’s Too Early

To end the latest lockdown. Covid lockdowns are just that much fun, I guess.

Spahn

German health minister says it’s too early to tell if its partial Covid lockdown will be extended – It is “too early to say” whether Germany will extend its four-week partial lockdown, according to health minister Jens Spahn.

Das wird uns den ganzen Winter beschäftigen.
