At the beginning of the month, Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach thanked people in Germany for complying with the Corona rules. The minister spoke of a "giant achievement" by the population. But the pandemic is not really over. There are still people who become infected with the corona virus, become seriously ill and also die with the virus, as Lauterbach said. However, it is in an endemic state. “We can go back to our normality. And that's a good thing," emphasized the minister.
