Poverty Conference: Stricter 2G rules hit poor people harder

The Lower Saxony State Poverty Conference has warned of “potential for social conflict” in view of stricter 2G rules. For people with little money or little education it is “to be expected that this will have a negative effect,” said the managing director of the state poverty conference, Klaus-Dieter Gleitze, of the German press agency. In any case, poor people lack the money to participate in society, and this could get worse now. They are less likely to be tested, and it is estimated that the vaccination rate is significantly lower among them, he warned. Poor people are also not adequately informed about the vaccination, at the same time they often have previous illnesses. The health risk with a corona infection is therefore greater than with normal or high earners. He assumes that the vaccination rate in well-off neighborhoods is almost twice as high as in socially disadvantaged areas, said Gleitze.

Seehofer warns against radicalization of the “lateral thinkers” movement

After the fatal shot in a dispute over the mask requirement in Idar-Oberstein, Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer warns of a radicalization of the “lateral thinkers” movement in Germany. “The group of lateral thinkers is getting smaller and smaller, but unfortunately also more and more radical and brutal,” Seehofer told “Bild am Sonntag”. The politically motivated violence in Germany by lateral thinkers is dangerous for the country. “They can decompose our country if the rule of law does not fight them with all means,” said the CSU politician.

Seehofer demanded that “the perpetrators and those who support crimes such as those in Idar-Oberstein” should be severely punished. A 49-year-old German is accused of having shot a 20-year-old cashier in the gas station in Idar-Oberstein. The young man had previously advised him of the mask requirement. After his arrest, the perpetrator said, according to investigators, that he rejects the corona measures.
