Germany Covid Update: Munich Christmas Market Cancelled (Patrick Mears, -Germany, 11/18/21 6:19 am)

John, I will let you know tomorrow when I receive the Covid booster. Connie receives hers next month.

I imagine that you have seen the news reports on Germany and its huge Covid problem now. The famous Christmas market in Munich is "kaputt." It appears that the market here in Heidelberg is still a go--but you must show your "Impfpass" to be admitted to the closed-off market. I am shocked that such a large percentage of Germans refuse to be vaccinated, and much of this resistance is "ideological," which is not the word that I would use to describe it.

Germany is now considering new regulations to reduce the huge numbers of infected persons that we presently have. Here is what is being discussed: https://www.dw.com/en/covid-german-parliament-approves-new-laws-to-curb-the-pandemic/a-59852951 .

Finally, son Eddie might not be able to travel here as planned on Christmas Eve. Because of the skyrocketing numbers here, he probably will not want to run the risk of being barred from reentry into Japan after his visit, especially after he went through a similar, long period in Singapore, during which Japan refused to admit resident aliens temporarily in Singapore back into Japan. As is said here in Germany, Japan could very well consider Germany as a "Risikogebiet" and Eddie could be stuck here for a long time.

JE comments: How long, Lord? It won't be long before the pandemic reaches its second anniversary. We have also decided against international travel for Christmas, for exactly the same reason Edward Mears cites: fear of getting stranded.  I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for South America (Bolivia and Chile) in the spring.

Click on the article above.  The photo of a discarded mask on Bundestag lawn is a profound commentary on our times.
