German lawmakers approve significant relaxation of lockdown rules for fully vaccinated citizens
German lawmakers have passed a law which will ease Covid-19 restrictions for people who have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus or who have recently recovered from the disease, in a majority vote.
The law was supported by members of the government coalition – Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative ‘Union’ bloc and the Social Democrats – as well as the Greens and the Left Party.
The right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party was the only one that voted against the government’s proposal, saying it did not go far enough, while the liberal Free Democrats abstained. AfD MP Ulrich Oehme explained his faction’s decision by accusing the government of managing the situation through “backdoors” and pitting Germany’s population against each other.
