The Berlin virologist Christian Drosten has been in the public eye since the beginning of the pandemic. Now the scientist has shown a sense of humor.
Berlin – Virologist Christian Drosten recently demonstrated a good deal of self-irony in a satirical video for ZDF.
In a “review of the year” posted on Twitter by moderator Sarah Bosetti on Tuesday, Drosten looks back at the fictitious end of the pandemic in 2022. The fact that he is a virologist is “no longer interested since my pandemic was over,” says the Berlin doctor in an interview with Bosetti, in which Drosten is introduced with the message “Was once important”.
I finally know why @c_drosten invented the pandemic.

“I invented the pandemic, everyone knows that by now,” he says. His motive: “It was all about the podcast. I just wanted to do a successful podcast. But now nobody wants to hear that since March. (…) You know what happened with the vaccination. ”This is followed by a“ review ”of a fictitious“ general vaccination ban ”in March 2022. After many appeals, the government is now counting on the people’s defiance. Bosetti reports as a newscaster: “In Germany, all skeptics got vaccinated within two days. Leading minds from the so-called lateral thinking scene had called intensely to vaccinate. Don’t let vaccination be banned. “
The “Annual Review 2022” of the comedy show “Bosetti wants to talk!” Has been available in the ZDF media library since December 30th, 2021. dpa
