The Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Soder in particular would like to move forward particularly quickly. This is how the Vaccination sequence in Bavaria be relaxed as early as May. Peter Tschentscher cannot understand this.

"It is thereby no longer Vaccine there," Tschentscher emphasized. What happens in Munich stays in Munich – at least according to the SPD politician. "We have made good experiences not to do immediately what Mr. Soder does in Bavaria. We are, of course, doing what makes sense," said Tschentscher.

For Peter Tschentscher The model trial is not an option for other cities. "The concept that we can manage in Germany by testing more and thereby opening up retail is not a solution for me," Tschentscher accentuated.

According to Tschentscher, the Incidence value continuously and will soon be below 100. Moderator Markus Lanz referred to the high price paid by the SPD politician.

"You have people fighting for their existence," said Lanz. "The prices of the too early openings are much higher," Tschentscher countered. The aim of the strategy is to avoid a yo-yo effect and to reduce the incidence rate in the long term.

Although the death rate among children is significantly lower, the Long Covid phenomenon cannot be ignored.

"Low incidences are the strategy for success and nothing else. If this had been felt to be important, then one would have Lockdowns designed within the vacations," Schroeder reproached the policy. Schroeder says the work is long past the point of discussing openings and closings. Rather, they say, the Politics Deal with the safety of children and adolescents.
