It is reported that the number of new coronavirus cases has stabilized since Germany suspended leisure and entertainment, sports venues and banned indoor dining in restaurants in early November, but the total number of cases remains high.
According to the data of the Robert Koch Institute of Disease Control in Germany, Germany added more than 22,000 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the 27th, with a total of more than 1 million confirmed cases.
In view of this, Germany has deployed 60 vaccination centers across the country, hoping to increase its efforts to vaccinate against the novel coronavirus in the first quarter of 2021.
Brom, the head of the Berlin vaccination center, said that at Tiger Airport, “we will vaccinate 3,000 to 4,000 people every day”.
According to the report, after the renovation of Terminal C of Tiger Airport, it will become a center for coronavirus vaccination, and it is expected that thousands of people can be vaccinated every day.
Although German Health Minister Spahn said that vaccination is not mandatory, German Chancellor Merkel said that the vaccine is like “a dawn at the end of the tunnel” for Germany.
Merkel said the cold winter may be tough, but “I believe we will see significant progress next year”, describing the coronavirus vaccine as a symbol of “hope”.
