Federal President Guy Parmelin mentioned it in the “NZZ am Sonntag”: He could also be in the Switzerland privileges for vaccinated people to introduce. This attitude is no coincidence, as blick.ch reveals. On Wednesday, the Federal Council passed resolutions on the subject on the basis of a confidential debate report from the Interior Department by Alain Berset. © www.de24.news

 The  aim is to give the population an incentive to get vaccinated.

Private commercial and cultural enterprises should be able to give preferential treatment to vaccinated persons. According to the plans of the state government, those who can prove that they have been vaccinated should be allowed to go to discos and the theater again, but they should also be able to be entertained inside a restaurant. “In this case, operators and organizers would have to request appropriate evidence that the vaccination was carried out in full,” says the solution approved by the Federal Council.

Those who have not yet been vaccinated are not disadvantaged: those who cannot be vaccinated because of allergies or pregnancy should still be allowed to go to the club. He or she simply has to show a negative corona test or can do a quick test on site. © www.de24.news

 The  same applies to those who have not received a vaccination appointment.

According to the report, vaccination privileges can only be applied if the majority of the adult population has the opportunity to be vaccinated at all. This should be the case from May or June at the latest. © www.de24.news

 The  preference is to end when herd immunity is achieved.

US President Joe Biden warns of the high number of Corona-Toten in the US from a dulling of society. “Even if we have fought this pandemic for so long, we have to fight against becoming numb,” said Biden in a speech in the White House on Monday evening (local time). © www.de24.news

 The  USA passed the threshold of more than half a million corona deaths on Monday. “Today we mark a really grim, harrowing milestone – 500,071 dead. That is more Americans who died from this pandemic in a year than in World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined,” he said.

Biden called on Americans to keep wearing masks, adhere to distance rules and get vaccinated when it is their turn. “We have to end the policy of misinformation that has divided families, communities and the country. It has already cost too many lives,” he said, referring to the term of office of his predecessor Donald Trump. “We have to fight this together, as one people, as the United States of America.”

In the USA more than half a million people are now associated with a Corona infection died. © www.de24.news

 The  number rose to 500,054 by Monday afternoon (local time). This was the result of an evaluation by the Reuters news agency of public health data. At the same time, more than 28 million infections have now been confirmed. In both cases, the US is well ahead of any other country in the world. President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor, Anthony Fauci, told ABC that the United States had fared worse than almost any other country. “And we are a highly developed, rich country.” Biden wanted to commemorate the victims at an event in the White House later that day.

About a fifth of all corona deaths worldwide were recorded in the United States – even though only four percent of the world’s population live in the country. Critics see one reason for the high numbers in dealing with the pandemic, which Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump had long talked down. After winning the presidential election on January 20, Biden took over from Trump and immediately made fighting the pandemic and the associated economic turmoil his top priority.

 The  conservative politician emphasized that there is no credible way to a Great Britain or a world without Covid-19. “Any loosening of lockdown measures will result in more cases and more deaths,” said Johnson.
