Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Germans will be 'vaccinated, recovered, or dead' by the end of the winter, the health minister warned amid a COVID-19 surge”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Jens Spahn, the German minister for health, said at a press conference on Monday that the infectious Delta variant made his bleak prediction "highly likely."

Germany recorded an average of 608 new cases per million on Monday, a sharp increase from 162 new cases per million on October 22, a month before, according to Oxford University's Our World in Data.

Unvaccinated people in Germany will catch COVID-19 unless they take "very, very, very good care" in every situation, Spahn said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Monday in a party meeting that the country was in a "highly dramatic situation" and needed tougher COVID-19 measures, Reuters reported, citing two anonymous sources. Merkel called on Germany's 16 federal states to decide stricter precautions by Wednesday, per Reuters.

Neighboring Austria went into a nationwide lockdown on Monday and plans to introduce vaccine mandates after a surge in COVID-19 cases.
