Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chief of staff, Helge Braun, said Sunday that people who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 could face new restrictions if infections remain high in Germany.

“Vaccinators will certainly have more freedom than non-vaccinators,” Braun told Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

Currently, Germans can attend restaurants, cinemas and sports venues if they have been fully vaccinated or have recently tested negative for covid-19.

If infection rates continue to rise, Brown said, people who are not immunized will also have to reduce contact with them.

“This may mean that visiting places like restaurants, cinemas and stadiums will no longer be possible, even for unvaccinated people who are being tested, because the risk is very high,” he said.

Brown said the state has a duty to protect people’s health. “This includes a health service that does not have to postpone winter surgery again to treat Covid patients.”

Germany has low infection numbers compared to its European neighbours, but cases have increased in the past two weeks, due to the delta type.

Last week, Merkel expressed concern about the “clear and alarming dynamic” of the increase in the number of cases. She asked that as many Germans as possible get the vaccine.

So far, 60.8% of Germans have received a dose and 49.1% have been fully vaccinated.
