“Pandemic Minister” Lauterbach calls for stricter restrictions: Otherwise we will have “another” 25,000 additional deaths
Since the outbreak of the corona virus, Karl Lauterbach has been back in the limelight, enjoying the role of alarmist and proclaiming his supposed knowledge like a grand inquisitor.
Lauterbach not only preaches to Germans to stay at home and calls for home inspections, Karlchen can also look into the future and sees a gloomy and apocalyptic vision if stricter restrictions are not imposed and the shops are not closed after Christmas. The answer from his crystal ball or his mysterious cards is: “Otherwise we will have another 25,000 dead at the end of January.” Oops, where are the current 25,000 dead, or are the statistics still being refined?
“We need a new Prime Minister’s Conference in the coming week,” demanded the SPD politician to the Berliner Tagesspiegel. “What are needed are early and longer school holidays until well into the New Year and the closure of shops, at least after Christmas”.
Schools and shops should be closed at least until the end of the first week of January, explained Lauterbach. He reiterated his warnings against New Year’s Eve parties with easing of the previous restrictions and said with a view to the required measures: “Otherwise we will have another 25,000 deaths at the end of January.”
According to his own admission, the SPD health expert also worries about the new year: “We should also say goodbye to the idea of celebrating New Year’s Eve as planned. This is a typical alcohol festival; in the pandemic that would be unbearable and could even initiate a third wave.”
An afterword from the translator:
The more I read and hear from a myriad of “Lauterbachs” around the planet, the more I come to the conclusion that they get sexual satisfaction from their “Doom and Gloom” prophecies.
They seem like necrophiliacs, like ghouls that thrive on the misery of others, a misery they themselves created.
