Germany: In the future, the abolition of anti-COVID restrictions

A few weeks ago, the German Ministry of Health made an assessment that the peak of the wave of the omicron variant in the country would be reached by mid-February.

If the forecasts are confirmed, then in the spring the German authorities may begin to lift restrictions. In Germany, many opponents of the restrictions are outraged by the fact that talk about the introduction of mandatory vaccinations is being conducted against the backdrop of a marked decrease in the number of hospitalizations with COVID-19 associated with the widespread use of the omicron option.

In recent weeks, many countries in Europe, primarily the UK, Denmark, Sweden, have announced their intention to completely remove anti-coronavirus restrictions. Other states, such as Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands, have also announced plans to phase out the pandemic.

In some other countries of the European Union, a law on compulsory vaccination of certain population groups was already adopted a few months ago. Thus, in Greece, vaccination against coronavirus from January 17, 2022 is mandatory for all residents of the country over the age of 60, from August 2021 – for nursing home staff, from September 1, 2021 – for doctors. In Italy, vaccinations are mandatory for doctors, nursing home and school employees, police and military, and people over the age of 50. In France, employees of hospitals, institutions for the care of the sick and the elderly, rescuers, police and firefighters are required to be vaccinated against coronavirus from September 15. In Belgium, this rule applies to physicians. In Austria, despite the regular mass protests of the population, the law on mandatory vaccination against coronavirus for all residents of the country aged 18 years and over came into force on February 5. Violators face fines of up to 3,600 euros.

Nevertheless, according to the latest EMA data, by the beginning of February 2022, 81.4% of the adult population in the European Union had already been vaccinated against coronavirus. Today, 5 vaccines developed using different technologies are approved for use in the EU. In Germany, according to the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), 123 million injections were given in the 11 months after the start of the vaccination campaign. At the same time, side effects were registered in 0.16% of cases (196.974 patients), complications after vaccination – in 0.02% of cases (26.196 patients).

Most experts agree that the safety level of covid vaccines approved for use in the European Union is high, and long-term complications are unlikely.
