Stricter restrictions on coronavirus are being introduced in Europe. Due to the epidemiological situation, some countries are again declaring a lockdown. In Germany, the queues for vaccination against COVID-19 stretch for hundreds of meters. It is now impossible to use public transport in the country if there is no document confirming the presence of vaccination, a previous illness, or negative results of PCR testing. The police can stop buses in the middle of the route to check.
In addition, similar requirements have begun to apply for presence at the workplace. Otherwise, the employer faces a fine of up to 25 thousand euros.
In the Czech Republic, a lockdown was introduced exclusively for unvaccinated citizens. Recently, the daily maximum of cases has been updated three times in the country.
In turn, the Prime Minister of Slovakia said that the country is losing the fight against coronavirus infection and announced a national lockdown for two weeks.
Earlier, the European Bureau of the World Health Organization named unvaccinated people as the main distributor of COVID-19.
"We urge everyone who is eligible for vaccination to take advantage of this opportunity.<...> This is especially important for priority groups, such as people aged 60 years and older, as well as people with weakened immunity," the WHO stressed.
