In a fictional review of the year 2022, Christian Drosten looks back on himself and the Corona end year 2022.
Berlin – It takes a good deal of self-irony to be able to target yourself. It was precisely this self-irony that virologist Christian Drosten recently demonstrated when he looked back on the fictitious end of the corona pandemic in 2022 in a satirical video for ZDF. In a “review of the year” posted on Tuesday (04.01.2022) by ZDF presenter Sarah Bosetti on Twitter, Bosetti interviewed him about the “past” year 2022.
“Nobody cares anymore” that he is a virologist “since my pandemic was over”, says the Berlin doctor in the interview with Bosetti, in which Drosten is introduced with the fade-in “Was once important”.
Berlin virologist Drosten: “I invented the pandemic”
The virologist goes on to say: “I invented the pandemic, everyone knows that by now.” 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 now relied on the people’s defiance and banned vaccination against the corona virus. As a newscaster, Bosetti reports: “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 forbidden. “(Lz / dpa)
