Now it has also caught Prof. Karl Lauterbach (59). The Federal Minister of Health has been infected with the corona virus. His ministry announced early in the morning that he had tested positive in the evening. He is doing well, he only has mild symptoms and is temporarily doing his official business from home isolation.
According to his ministry, Lauterbach has been vaccinated four times. "This shows that with the highly contagious omicron variant, infection cannot be completely ruled out, even with the utmost caution," the statement said.
Even when he is sick, the minister does not seem to tire of appealing to the common sense of the citizens. One should behave prudently and ensure adequate vaccination protection so that infections and severe courses can be prevented as far as possible.
