Germany wants to specifically infect people in order to survive the epidemic faster

Each country offers its own methods of combating the coronavirus pandemic, and sometimes they are very extravagant. So, the head of the department of microbiology at Halle-Wittenberg University, the leading epidemiologist in Germany, Alexander Kekule, believes that young Germans should be allowed to get COVID-19 so that collective immunity against the new virus develops in the country.

The scientist warned Angela Merkel about the unfavorable development of the situation. On January 22, he proposed taking measures to check all tourists entering Germany for the presence of COVID-19 - this, he said, would help to avoid mass quarantine.

In March, when the pandemic in Germany was already gaining momentum, Kekule proposed closing schools and the country's border - only isolation, in his opinion, could prevent the further spread of the disease.

However, at the same time, he believes that a long quarantine can do more harm to economicsthan, in fact, the disease itself. Therefore, according to the biologist, it is necessary to slowly leave quarantine, not expecting the appearance of a vaccine, since its location and testing can drag on for a year.

Elderly people as well as patients with chronic diseases should continue to isolate themselves, while young people should be given more freedom:

For people younger than 50 years old, the coronavirus is not a big threat. Let them get infected - so it will be possible to develop collective immunity

- said Alexander Kekule.

    For people younger than 50 years old, the coronavirus is not a big threat.

    Ha ha ha, well, well. "Doesn't carry", everything is somehow very relative. As if there are so few young and young people with problems of the respiratory and circulatory systems and other ailments and habits that weaken the body. Some probably don't even know about them yet, and some at thirty-three have such deterioration of the body that other 55-year-olds do not have and are not expected in the next ten years.

    The scientist warned in advance about the unfavorable development of the situation ...

    ..Kekule proposed to close schools, as well as the country's border - only isolation, in his opinion, was capable ...

    If so, then why warn and offer?
    An action would be held to rejuvenate the peoples inhabiting the country, and all things. Some kind of stupid interview or someone misunderstood something.

    It’s a bad idea, since mortality is still quite high, and the health consequences for all ill people are quite negative, in the form of lung damage ... even in asymptomatic mild cases.

      Mortality and birth rates can be monitored on the UN website even online. In Germany, 2412 people die on average per day. And this figure is now the same as in 2019. Now in Germany 23:48 (almost a day) was born - 1845, died - 2393. What kind of disease is this without symptoms?

    The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office demanded that access to new publications containing inaccurate information about the coronavirus be restricted. This is stated in a message published on the agency’s website on April 16.

      How do they know that the information is false? And who checks the accuracy of their reliability assessment?
