As I reported last month the German government is looking ahead to next winter, and has warned citizens that the “pandemic” is not over, and new anti-Corona measures are to be expected.
Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann has now provided more details about what lies ahead. Masks are a prominent part of the program.

New Infection Protection Act
Minister of Justice: The mask will certainly play a role
Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann (FDP) does not rule out that when the new Infection Protection Act (IfSG) comes into force, a far-reaching mask requirement will be reintroduced in Germany. “We will probably present a concept later this month. The mask will certainly play a role in it,” he told the Welt am Sonntag.
His principle is “behavior adapted to the situation: if the danger decreases, then you must withdraw the measures.” If the danger increases, then it must be countered appropriately. “In any case, the evaluation report confirms that the medical mask in the interior has a very good cost-benefit ratio.” [How much did they pay those “scientists” to come up with this? And where is the double-blind peer-reviewed article published? Nowhere, most likely, because I couldn’t find any.]
2G and 3G rules: Buschmann remains skeptical
Regarding possible access restrictions in public spaces through 2G or 3G rules, the minister said: “We will have to talk about that now. To do this, we also have to take a close look at what effects the vaccines have and under what conditions this could apply.” He was personally skeptical, “but we will now discuss it carefully.”
Buschmann gave a clear rejection of possible new lockdowns. “From all we know, lockdowns, school closures and curfews are no longer proportionate today, in my view.”
Such measures can only be taken, if at all, in the early stages of a pandemic. “Now we are in the third year. And if we know today that these measures have a very poor cost-benefit profile, then we should say goodbye to them once and for all,” said the minister.
Data should be improved
In its report on the Corona measures in Germany, a committee of experts sharply criticized the data situation and the occurrence of restrictions on fundamental rights on Friday.
According to their own statements, the experts were unable to evaluate individual measures due to the miserable data situation. Buschmann announced that he wanted to improve the data situation immediately. “I am glad that on Friday we launched a draft law in the cabinet, thanks to which we will know more about the Corona situation in the future, especially in hospitals.”
In the future, more information will be available about who is in the hospital DUE TO, and who WITH Corona, and how many beds are free there. Another component would be waste-water screenings, which can provide information on the infection process: “Overall, we have improved the quality of the data,” he told the Welt am Sonntag.
Afterword from the translator:
The best Minister of Justice in the best Germany ever…
14-year-olds can now choose their gender every 12 months, and, if necessary, inject hormones without their parents’ consent. But you are not allowed to make your own health choices, because you are not legally competent. When it comes to government-sanctioned evil, 80% participate! And will always participate. I now consider them enemies.
