Germany remains true to itself.

While most of the corona restrictions have already fallen in Great Britain, you can dance again in Czech discos and in Denmark you can visit theaters, cinemas and soon restaurants again without a test or vaccination certificate, fear continues to reign in this country.

Also this autumn and winter, retailers, restaurateurs, cultural organizers and many others will probably only be able to use part of their capacities.

The fact that the federal government is already preparing a further extension of the corona aid is not surprising, even with a view to the upcoming election.

And yet this policy seems strange.

As vaccination advances, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that hospitals will be overburdened.

The primary goal should therefore be to allow as much social and economic life as possible again.

A zombie economy supported by the state that only simulates such normality should not become the new economic policy guideline.
