Lauterbach violates Berlin quarantine ordinances to attend press conference, accidentally reveals that he was last vaccinated 271 days ago
We must be thankful, at least, for the fact that this man is incredibly stupid
Lauterbach, in what we can only pray is the calm before his Paxlovid rebound, violated Berlin quarantine ordinances to defend his proposed pandemic legislation at a press conference today. You’ll remember that our Mad Minister claims to be quadruple-vaccinated, but his ministry – acting certainly on his own instructions – has refused to release dates or further details.
Well, in the course of discussing his proposed colour changes to the Corona-Warn App, Lauterbach showed his own vaccine pass to the cameras. Scanning the QR code reveals that he received dose three 271 days ago, or on 14 November 2021, a Sunday:
This is well after the rest of Camp Hysteria had lined up for their bonus round of Pfizer. His predecessor in the health minister’s office, Jens Spahn, went for his third jab already at the end of October. In fact, as Corona Realism (@holmenkollin) points out, Lauterbach spent the first half of November demanding nothing so much as 2G (a de facto lockdown of the unvaccinated), and talking down the utility of a booster campaign for the under-70s. Then, precisely on 14 November, he adjusted his tune, demanding now that regulators recommend boosters for everyone.
It’s possible, of course, that Lauterbach received his fourth jab sometime this spring and simply never registered it with app, but this wouldn’t explain why the Health Ministry has been so unforthcoming as to details. No, I think he just never bothered. Lauterbach preferred repressive policies to the boosters that everybody had such high hopes for at the time, and he got his own third dose too late to talk openly about it without raising eyebrows or alienating his insane followers.
UPDATE: The official Twitter account of the German Ministry of Health (!) twelve minutes ago tweets that we should “not worry about the QR Code: The Health Minister is quadruple vaccinated. The fourth vaccination isn’t registered with his Corona-Warn-App.”
Interpret this sudden and very bizarre intervention as you will.
