According to the FDP faction in the Bundestag, Germany should immediately lift the pandemic restrictions that are still in place for entry into the country. The government of the SPD, the Greens and the FDP quite recently extended the regulations until the end of May.
Parliamentary group chairman Christian Dürr said in an interview with the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung newspaper that fortunately the situation in hospitals has further improved and that there is no longer any danger of overburdening the health system. He believes that since covid restrictions have already been lifted throughout Germany, “the strict entry regulations should also be abandoned.”
In his view, it makes “little sense”, for example, to have a 3G rule for people entering Germany, since they can later move freely around the country without having to present covid certificates. “Should a dangerous variant of the virus appear outside Germany in the future, we can always introduce new rules for entry from certain countries,” the FDP politician added.
