Germany is in a “state of emergency”, according to the head of the Department of Microbiology at the Charité University Hospital in Berlin, Christian Drosten, who predicts an additional 100,000 deaths if no immediate action is taken, including a lockdown.

Speaking on the North German NDR network podcast, Mr Drosten emphasized that “vaccination gaps need to be closed”, with the ideal target being a fully vaccinated population in three doses. However, as he admits, no one can count on such a thing, measures “which we thought we had left behind”, such as reducing contacts, must be discussed again in the short term. “I look forward to a very demanding winter with new – and I say calmly – lockdown measures,” said the German scientist. due to the transmissibility of the “Delta” variant.

“If we do not react now with tougher measures, given Britain’s experience, we could reach 100,000 dead,” Drosten said. “And this is a conservative estimate.”
