Moderator Dunja Hayali wanted to know from the Prime Minister that the hospitals in his state no longer know where up and down is. “You already know that, but we will get into a situation in the next few days that we no longer have enough intensive care beds,” was his answer.

Because of the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” there are no longer enough hospital beds. “And we will no longer be able to guarantee anyone who comes to the hospital unvaccinated that they will still be treated here at all.” .

Thuringia has been the state with the highest incidence for weeks. According to the latest RKI figures, it is currently 386.9. Within one day, 1944 new infections were added, as well as 12 deaths from or with Covid-19.
