Defining views on Covid between Biden and Merkel: Do not panic, but intensify the vaccination campaign

John Biden is focusing on the vaccination campaign. Addressing his fellow citizens, the President of the United States reiterated his personal plea to Americans to vaccinate to avoid further restrictions, also believing that this policy should take place on an international scale.

At the same time, he stressed that vaccinating the Americans would not be enough to solve the problem internationally. The President of the United States said: “The world must be vaccinated and the rules for international travel and the flows into the United States must be strengthened,” noting that Washington will send 200 million doses of vaccines free of charge in the coming weeks to some foreign countries. without specifying their destinations.

Meanwhile, Germany has decided to impose strict restrictions on those who have not yet been vaccinated against Covid 19, including banning access to non-essential shops, restaurants or entertainment venues. A bill on compulsory vaccination is also in the works, which Olaf Schultz must submit to the Chamber in order to take effect between February and March.
