Corona Press Conferencespahn: eu follows German “2 plus 2” approach with vaccine order21.05.2021, 12:21 uhr | rtr, dpa, t-onlinethe summer must be used to suppress virus spread as far as possible, said RKI President lothar Wieler. The number of infections goes back, but the Minister of health warns of lightness. In the discussion on the procurement of vakzines in the eu, the bund spahn could prevail.

Bundesgesundheitsminister jens spahn (cdu) has called people in Germany to continue to protect themselves from contagious contagious contagious contagious diseases despite falling corona numbers. “Enjoy the celebration, we enjoy the celebration together, but we stay cautious,” said spahn on Friday in berlin. When the infections continued to fall down and the inoculations went up, “then we have a good summer in mind.”

He grieved too patient, after doctoral officials had reported that many patients reacted impatiently during the often short term appointment. Spahn explained, currently there are about one million inoculations every day. Broad support in eu for German “2 plus 2” approachIn the long term, further vaccines will be required.

The eu will buy according to spahn various vaccines for the years 2022 and 2023. on Thursday, the EU Minister of Health has given “very, very broad” support for the German proposal to put on a “portfolio approach” and not only to order vaccines at BioNTech/Pfizer. One wants a “2 plus 2” approach, in which two of the ordered vaccines should be based on mRNA technology and two others on other technologies. Spahn also called for better financial resources from the World Health Organisation (who) by the Member States.

It is not good that the proportion of private financing in some programmes is so high. Bundeskanzlerin angela merkel (cdu) had announced this for the end of the summer. In everything annoying about waiting for an appointment you can keep in mind: “It’s about weeks, not about months”.
