Joe Biden will probably exceed his goal, Israel is expanding its vaccination options to furniture stores. Why is Germany lagging behind when it comes to vaccinations? We talk to journalist Derek Scally about this and other topics.
Germany is making slow progress with Covid-19 vaccinations. So far, according to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), 3.31 million German citizens have received the first vaccination nationwide. In the US, Joe Biden is likely to exceed his goal of getting 100 million vaccinations in the first 100 days of his tenure. In Israel, people should now be able to get vaccinated in furniture stores. Why can’t we do it? We are talking about this with Derek Scally, Berlin correspondent for the Irish Times.
