Lauterbach for drastic penalties for violations of the 2G regulation

The SPD health politician Karl Lauterbach considers a 2G regulation to be the only effective measure against the corona pandemic and has spoken out in favor of drastic penalties for violations. Very strict controls are decisive, said Lauterbach in the evening on the ARD program “Maischberger”. If, for example, a restaurant 2G does not control and thus attracts attention, “then it leads to six weeks of closure,” said Lauterbach. “Without the courage to introduce 2G across the board, drastically and with strict controls, we will not get a grip on this wave,” warned the SPD politician.
