    Germany is among the latest large European countries to reimpose COVID-19 restrictions nationwide, alongside France, Germany, and the UK as cases rise across the continent.

    While this has included shutting down pubs, restaurants, cafes, and potentially crowded night venues, the latest restrictions stopped short of school closures or retail outlets. German officials are now signaling to the public that they should brace for more months of “severe” measures to curb the surge in cases, according to Reuters on Sunday:

    Germans should brace for another 4-5 months of severe measures to halt the rise in coronavirus infections and should not expect the current rules to be eased quickly, Economy Minister Peter Altmaier told weekly Bild am Sonntag.

    Germany’s economy minister said the nation should be prepared for a months-long lockdown period to address surging coronavirus caseloads.

    Describing that “we’re not out of the woods yet” Altmaier further emphasized that Berlin wants to avoid a “yo-yo shutdown” with the economy “constantly opening and closing”.

    “If we don’t want days with 50,000 new infections, as was the case in France a few weeks ago, we must see through this and not constantly speculate about which measures can be relaxed again,” he told a German newspaper over the weekend.

    “All countries that lifted their restrictions too early have so far paid a high price in terms of human lives lost,” he added.


    Last week Chancellor Angela Merkel warned that Germans can expect a “more severe” outbreak during the second wave. “As it was the case with the Spanish flu, we now also have to expect that the second wave will be more severe,” she said Wednesday.

    As of Sunday Germany is on the cusp of surpassing 800,000 confirmed infections, including over 12,500 deaths, making it the 13th most infected country globally.

      1. Both Germany and France have off the scale problems with radical Muslims and the threat of terrorism. That’s the reason for the lockdowns. Notice every time France opens up, crazy Muslim attacks start up again.

        Lock them down and you can run a slower economy but the attacks stop, which saves lives. In order to open up to what we once had, the Muslims will need to be quietly moved out of Western countries by private security companies. Do this at night during lockdown and nobody will notice, or care.

      2. As each day passes by,the United States of Amerika gets closer and closer to being just as enslaved or even worse than Germany.

      3. Import a critical mass of chaos agents, appoint some to critical roles, and wall them all in, together, like incompatible species in an aquarium. Seems like I’ve heard this, somewhere, before…

      4. Read my *pure *speculation. But, do not live on your toes. Have an artful and restful life. I actually like what Dominionist prosperity preachers say about that spirit of fear. Speculation, following —

        The Club of Rome has 10 bio-regions, on 7 continents, symbolized by 10 horns on 7 heads. #1, 2, and 3 fall. As it so happens, North America, West EU and the Island of Japan are numbered 1,2,and 3, if my geography is remembered well.

      5. “Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world? Where none suffered, where everyone would be happy. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world. But I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through suffering and misery. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this: the peak of your civilization.”

        I find it ironic, that basic modernities have created an age of hyper abundance — in which fields of cars and silos of food were thrown away. We would never have to be bored, hungry, or in physical pain. It never necessarily burned out, except for a Freudian death drive, like in Calhoun’s rat utopia.
