Vaccinated people should be able to exercise basic rights again
The SPD politician is thus opposing the cabinet of Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and his own party, which have so far refused to give people who have been vaccinated more freedom. Maas called the debate so far “misleading”. “It’s not about privileges, but about the exercise of basic rights for vaccinated people,” he said.
“A vaccinated person does not take a ventilator away from anyone”
The state has massively restricted these basic rights with the corona rules so that more people are not infected and in the end intensive care beds and ventilators are no longer sufficient. “It has not yet been finally clarified to what extent people who have been vaccinated can infect others,” said the former Federal Minister of Justice. “But what is clear: a vaccinated person will no longer take a ventilator away from someone.” This removes at least one central reason for restricting fundamental rights.
Vaccination should enable businesses and shops to be opened
The federal government has so far rejected freedom for vaccinated people. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU), for example, had warned of an impending split in society.
