Erfurt (dpa / th) - Thuringia's Minister of Health Heike Werner (Linke) has accused the AfD of risking people's illness with polemics in the corona pandemic.

"The AfD has strongly polemicized against the corona measures and questioned the severity of the diseases," said Werner of the German press agency.

This approach outraged them.

"This also risks human lives and at least risks human illness," emphasized Werner.

You can see that where the AfD had great electoral successes, the numbers of corona infections are also high.

Research must show whether there is an actual connection here.
